Default Fixing pits in the windshield - fill and/or polish out?

Driving to work this morning, the sun was right in front of me and it was reflecting off all the little pits in my windshield, making the glare even worse. I just got done reading a bunch of searched-out threads talking about how to clean the windshield, but that's not really the problem. Even if my windshield was sparkling clean, the pits would still be the problem.

I envision some kind of polish that fills these little marks and then cures up clear and possibly then provides an extra layer of protection to the glass as a whole. Similar to how Zaino has a product that helps fill/hide clear coat swirls then also protects after. Is this what "glass polish" is supposed to do? If so, what brands are recommended? I know Zaino makes a glass product - any experience? Zaino's a little pricey and not in a store - anything I can pick up at Pep Boys on the way home today and try out?

The Zaino glass polish is mildly abrasive, and while it does a decent job on waterspots and road grime, it won't touch those pits (in my experience, anyway). As far as I know, there isn't a product on the market that can get rid of the pitting (other than a new windshield, that is). The pits are typically too deep for a glass polish to remove, and I don't know of a "filler" product for glass.

Yep sounds more like time for a new windshield.
I had the same thought about some sort of glass polish
but could not find any thing. New windshield to come in the spring.
cheers
