    I'm new to this forum and wanted to see if someone might be able to help me with a problem I've noticed on my daughter's shooting glasses. I bought her a pair of SI M-Frame 3.0 and it appears that there some sort of coating peeling off of the clear lenses.

    Any idea what could be causing this?

    Thanks for any help/advice. Coating On Lens Peeling Off? - MFrame 30.JPG Coating On Lens Peeling Off? - Mframe30-2.JPG

    Hi there, i normally see this on glasses that have had contaminants on the lenses - sun cream, hair products, hair oils etc. Either that or cleaning products other than Oakley lens solution/hydrophobic has been used

    Has she cleaned her glasses with anything other than plain water, like dawn or some other cleaner? IT appears its stripping the anti-fog coating only at this point.

    This happens when the lenses aren't cleaned or at the very least wiped after use. As FuelCell1989 mentioned, contaminants will cause the coating to strip. Lotions, oils from hair/skin, etc. This also happened to my original pair of e-wires, but it was because they sat close to my face and my long eyelashes kept brushing up against the inside of the lenses. Over time, it wore the coating. They were my 2nd pair of Oakleys i owned and i didn't know any better back then.

    I have seen this before. I have a pair of lenses that this is happening to actually. They are mag m frame lenses and it is peeling basically in the same spots as your daughters. I believe, like everyone else has said, that this happens from making contact with skin and not being cleaned after use.

    It is the AR coating. Sweat that isnt cleaned off after a while begins to do this to lenses.

    My son has had a pair of SI Ballistic M3.0 Black Frame Gray Lens glasses for about 6 months. His glasses started peeling the same way about 3 months after purchase. He wears them very little. This past weekend the very tiny plastic pin that connects the earpiece to the frame broke when he removed the glasses from his head. This is the only Oakley product we own and I am totally unimpressed. How can this possibly be marketed to be durable enough to be worn by our military men and women??
