    As far as I know there is no "Polarized" etching on the lens of custom Oakley's because you have an option to custom etch anything on the lens before check out. If you did not specify anything to be etched on the lens then they will leave it blank. Have you checked if the lens they sent you is indeed Polarized? If they sent you a Non-Polarized lens after indicating BIP then that is a different case. Hope this helps.

    Easy way to figure out polarized Oakley.
    Go sit inside your car. Look at your radio display from different angles, Often it will appear washed out and when you look out your front windows, it will look as if the tint in them has "broken" down.
    It's a weird effect but you can definitely see this

    even better, wear your new glasses and read OF like this message. Now tilt your head left/right without tilting your display - does it darken?

    Yes, that is good advice too.

    It's even easier to hold the glasses in front of your face and rotate them through 90 degrees whilst looking at the screen - at or near 90 degrees, they should darken considerably.

    I had the same experience. There is nothing wrong with them, they just aren't etched and don't say oakley over the bridge of the nose.

    But there's no fun in that! You need to wear your Oakleys reading OF and strike a pose with a tilted head to make a statement! :tongue:
