Our Oakley Juliet sunglasses came with two sets of lenses. Both sets were polarized, but the yellow ones had a more reflective mirror coating. We thought we would swap out the blue ones for yellow in honor of Spring. Ok, it is not a very compelling reason, but it gave us an excuse to take apart the Oakley frame :-)
The Oakley frame is a little different compared to a typical sunglasses frame. The screw holding everything together is on the bottom rather than on the side. The screw is not a flat or Phillips, but a Torx...a T6 to be precise.
There was a rubber gasket in the gap cushioning the ends. With the screw removed, the lens was easily popped from the frame. Getting the new lens back in was a little more difficult than the removal. However, we finally managed to get it in, but not without leaving a lot of finger prints on the lens.
The two lenses are quite different in appearance and they give the Oakley a whole different vibe. Blue and Yellow are not the only color options available. We are currently bidding on a set of ruby red lenses on EBay so we can fashion a pair similar to those worn by Cyclops in X-Men! [Permalink]- Oakley Lens Replacement
