    Is there an easy way to make sure the Juliet lenses real and not knock offs?

    Easy? No. You need to study and learn your Oakley lenses. Know which base tints various lenses are supposed to have, and how the iridium (if applicable) is supposed to look on them. Hang out at an O store and familiarize yourself.

    Otherwise, aftermarkets are often thinner and the edge bevel may not be the same, but that's not a sure-fire catch-all. You really need to know what an authentic example of the claimed lens is supposed to look like.

    Or post pics on the "real or fake" thread and see what the forum has to say.

    Don't trust some of these eBay sellers which claim to have "rare color lenses". Ask questions or send us the eBay number which is even easier. There are eBay sellers that remove OEM Oakley lenses, sell them separate and I stall cheap aftermarket and sell them as a " one off hard to find " piece. Don't believe what they say. Ask ask ask
