How do you take out the reflection of my flash in sunglasses in photoshop?

I was shooting with my XSi and i used the flash on certain pictures and the flash reflects off of his dark brown sunglasses, is there a way to take that out?

It's hard to say without seeing the image ... might be best to upload a sample image with your post. In any case, perhaps you could just zoom way in and use a combination of the clone stamp and feathered copy/paste from the other eye to fill the glare with the correct surrounding colors. That'll be far more complicated if the person's eye is visible through the sunglasses and/or it's an extreme close-up.

To avoid the same issue in the future, you might consider using a reflector to bounce light onto the subject instead of having the flash point directly into the person's eyes.

I cloned a different part of the glasses to cover up the flash! It worked perfectly, Its a good idea!
