Yeah I’m showing my age! It’s more the frame colour than the lense!
I read that as "foreskin"
Really should use my reading glasses more when using my phone
Oakley quality has absolutely nose dived in the past few years. Used to be great sunglasses, but absolute garbage now imo. Expect the coating on the lenses to start coming off within 12 months.
I like that these glasses protect from UVA, B and C. The sun is a bit wild.

Guessing you bought fakes as that is absolute rubbish.
@Rofflecopter Why would they start to come off unless you are using a strong cleaning solution? I think these ones are built into the glass and do not have a coating applied. Don't quote me on that though

No, the lenses are made of polycarbonate (plutonite in Oakley parlance).
The reflective/mirror coating is their Iridium coating.
It does scratch and come off easily.

I look after my Oakleys but there are some scratches on the lenses. Perhaps I should have been more careful. But yeah.

However this has always been the case and hasn't changed.

Their PRIZM lenses are a recent development and far superior to their old lenses.
Not in durability or the iridium coating, but the optics.
The lense plastic is impregnated with a base die. E.g. rose, yellow, grey.
The contrast is awesome. They're constrast enhancing and for example make reds and greens really pop. Like looking at an OLED screen vs a normal old one or washed out screen.

What has happened is their warranty is weaker than it used to be.

And some have complained the plastics aren't as good - are flimsier etc.

Personally I like the more flexy frame plastics and the more understated and less alien designs.

Lenses are still made in the US I believe. But the frames are now made in China.

So in summary, quality is lower, but pricing is a fair bit lower, really a lot lower in real world terms.
And the technology and optics have improved.

I rate Oakley. I'm a fan, but I'm not going to deny that Luxottica buying them hasn't had an effect.

Nope. Go for them if you want; I'm just giving my opinion from personal experience having owned several pairs. Reviews on Trustpilot aren't exactly great, albeit I suppose most people will only post if there's a negative experience.
