Do you have a photo that you can show us so we can see if its really bad or if its recoverable with a bit of time and patience.

clone clone clone.
Learn to light so that you can avoid it to begin with is my solution. You may still get it now and then, and if it's small it's not too bad to fix, but you're going to be working a very magnified view to do it well. It it's a large glare spot you may be screwed, or need 'info' from another pic to clone in.

The best way to get good at PS is to have to fix your mistakes :D

It is really hard to do a good job of eliminating reflections in glasses with photoshop. You have to paint in the details that were covered up by the reflection. There is a trick that some claim will make it easy: take two pictures of your subject in each pose, one with glasses and one without. Then put the two images together as separate layers with the "glasses" image in front. Align the layers and then erase the glass in the glasses to show the eyes taken without glasses.

I've actually never done this. Seems like it would be a pain to get the subject to maintain head position to get a duplicate without glasses that would be close enough to line up adequately.

Here is a video tutorial I found from a thread at DPReview.

Photoworkshop.com

Once on this page click Adobe Photoshop CS, CS2, CS3 on the right
Jane Connor-Ziser and on the right Pro-studio retouching.

Jane shows a couple of methods, one of which is cloning.

That's essentially what Jane Connor-Ziser is demonstrating in the Photoworkshop tutorial linked before this post. Her two poses do not match precisely, thought hey are close, and she uses the editing tools and guidelines to bring them into alignment, and then works with masks on the overlying layer, which is the eyes-only layer as opposed to laying a BG copy over the eye-only layer and erasing the glass. I can't hear the voiceover so I am not sure why she does it that way.
