Is there a way to remove the glare from this photo or is it a loss? I didn't take my glasses off while taking this photo and I've been trying to remove the glare in Photoshop for a good hour or two now. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

To get rid of the color cast and recover some of the detail, on a duplicate layer I used apply image to replace the green and blue channels with the red channel. Masked in just the eyes so that the blue ring and badge weren't affected by the change. Then did some basic cloning to fill in any other missing detail.
