    I have no experience with either brands, so not sure if my post would help but if you can't buy Oakley lenses, I would buy the Revant. I have heard they are much better quality.

    Also they are a sponsor of the Oakley Forum!!

    I have only tried one other aftermarket lens.
    Though the colour is spot on, and the fit accuracy is great, there is slight image disortion, as compared to the original lenses.
    I notice this when the lens is moved in front of my eyes, especially in a vertical plane.
    I cannot replicate the effect with the OEM lens.
    For me, "XYZ" optics isn't just a catch phrase, and the aftermarket lenses sit unloved in a drawer.
    Your mileage might vary...

    Do you have to get aftermarket?

    Have you considered custom cuts? Not sure about the Why 8, but I know many lenses can be custom cut from donor lenses. I have a couple custom cuts in my Juliets and I couldn't be happier with them.

    All do custom cuts from OEM lenses whether or not there is a suitable donor lens available for what you're after you'd be best off asking them directly

    +1 to this, I have custom cut lenses by InfiniteHero and xmetalmaniac. Both are optically excellent and correct for polarized lenses. Go with one of those three and I know you won't be disappointed.

    I have tryed Visionary Lenses for my monsterdogs, they look great from the outside 9 out of 10 ,but from the inside looking out 7 out of 10 you can tell its not a oakley lens.
    I would just stick to getting the actual oakley lens if you can find it for your style.
