You can use some plastic epoxy. Then order a new lens in the meantime.

For my purposes, epoxy was the answer. The hole and crack were small enough so that was all that was needed. I will check the local salvage yards to see if I can scavenge one cheap to replace it down the road. Thanks for your suggestions.
