I have a pair of oakleys with the oakley lens and another pair of oakley frames with non oakley lens. The pair with the oakley lens was the best glasses I have ever had. Same RX at the time as my normal glasses but the oakleys were much sharper and clearer. I got them over 10 years ago and still wear them today for work (lawn care). My RX changed and put me just out of the range of RX that oakley offers so I had to do standard tinted lens with my new oakleys and frankly they suck.

I'll ponder on that too; I am pretty careful with my stuff, but will consider metal frames, too.

If you're careful with your things then don't worry about it. Just get in the habit of putting them in the case when not wearing them.

My advice is really only relevant to people who have big problems with leaving stuff laying around, or who have little kids.

Got a pair of Polarized Rx lenses - put in a regular prescription Oakley Currency frames; (color: flint). They look decent, has a great fit, and felt very sturdy, and despite a bit of a design on the arms, it's very normal looking.

Pics show the design on the arms extenuated but in real life it's hardly noticeable. Love the rubberized grippy tips at end of arm.

These have the skull grip design and they fit onto my head very well.

Oakley site: (I got this in flint/dark brown front, and it's much darker than on the pic on their site, esp. the arms.)
(scroll down on that site for more info...I almost missed the info section)

I had this done some years ago using a pair of Oakley Titanium Wires.
Unfortunately for me, my insurance would not even cover the regular 'prescription' Oakley frames, so that was out of pocket. frown

I actually prefer to use the non-Oakley lenses (BOTH sunglass AND reading) since there are more options for coatings and such, and Oakley does not even make sunglass lenses in the power(s) that I need (>2.5).

Another reason to go with the Oakley reading script frames over their sunglass frames is that some of their sunglass lens curvatures CANNOT even be made into a prescription lens.
