    H2O XLJ Lenses Don't Fit - what's going on??? - image.jpg

    H2O XLJ Lenses Don't Fit - what's going on??? - image.jpg

    This is the second pair sent this week and neither set of lenses fit. This happened to me a while ago with a set of Half X lenses, the last breed of proper Ruby coloured, so I don't want to get rid although they do fit the frame but only for display as there's a gap.

    The Golf lens in the pic fits perfectly but the H2O lens seems to have a different curve along the top??

    I had one flak jacket frame in the past that always gave me much more difficulty when changing lenses compared to all my other flaks... the corner of the lenses didn't want to snap in near the nose, which looks like what is happening for you. Just make sure you are bending the frame a bit and then sort of roll it along the top of the lens. Sometimes I've had to apply a good bit of pressure to get that corner to snap in place, more than I'm comfortable with, but it got the job done.

    Did it distort the edges and affect vision?

    I'm usually afraid of snapping my flaks. I hate changing those.

    Don't be.

    When showing customers how durable the frames are, I usually twist the temples 180 degrees apart. Never had a problem.

    Update - now I've tried them outside, they are optically distorted...

    Slightly gutted to say the least.

    I'll be on the phone again tomorrow.

    Certainly not 2.0

    I must say Oakley UK have very good so far, I'm sure I'll get a refund.

    Not sure I'll be getting the benefit of Prizm H2O lenses on my next trip though.
