    Hi all. This is my first post. I'm the rare female collector. I have a set of plasma fire iridium that are my every day pair I've had for around 13 years. I put some BIP lenses in them. Well, I just bought NIB, a complete set with coin, box, warranty and socks Carbon Black BIP from a store that's had em 15 years or so for a fraction of what the usual online price is for such. I'm waiting for them to be shipped. Do any of you know if the replacement lenses are still available at oakley? I ordered the BIP last year from oakley for my plasma for around $90. Just looking at my options for the future. Thanks!

    Hi welcome to the forum.
    I believe Oakley discontinued even the Juliet lenses... It is very rare (but not unheard of) for some Oakley Store to have it. Most rely on:
    -aftermarket lenses
    - those who kept brand new OEM and willing to sell
    -and those who uses othe Oakley OEM lenses and cut it in Juliet size.

    Juliet lenses occasionally crop up online but it's been very sporadic for at least a year. You might be better off calling them directly and enquiring - I got warm grey lenses from Oakley Europe that way just a couple of weeks ago.

    Another option, as @motoGP_fanatic pointed out, is to get lenses custom cut to fit your Juliets. Take a look here where I have a number of Prizm lenses that only came out after Juliet was long discontinued fitted in some pairs:

    Once you are able to view and post to the X Metal exchange you will see several sellers offering these and be able to post your own WTB (want to buy) thread to see what you can pull out of the woodwork.

    Thanks everyone! when I bought my plasma/fire and titanium(I think it was violet or ice) and Romeo back in 03, I had no idea they'd get retired and become highly collectible. Should have hung on to the latter 2 pair longer :) It was just a year ago that I bought the BIP lens from oakley for $90. If I'd known they were gonna stop producing the lenses as well, I would have definitely bought more!
    After owning these, I tell ya no other glasses can compare.

    Well it's not too late to get more... like the lenses I mentioned earlier, X-Metals are still available by alternative means.
