    Hi all,
    I'm new to the forum and was looking around trying to get some warranty information about a pair of sunglasses that I purchased in May. I happened to come across some people talking about cutting OEM lens to fit older model glasses that have been discontinued. I have probably 10-15 pairs of older sunglasses that I stopped wearing because the lenses were beat, but just couldn't toss them out. I did contact Oakley about 2 of the pairs, to see if I could purchase new lenses but they were discontinued. It would be awesome to be able to get some of my older ones re-lensed if it is possible. I have a pair of C-Wires and a pair of older Special Edition Juliet's that I would really like to get done, as they have been two of my favorite pairs over the last 20+ years.

    Please tell me who can cut new lenses!!! I am assuming there are a few people doing it, who's the best? I need to get this done.

    Thanks

    I have had Juliet lenses cut by @InfiniteHero and @salj838, all have been good. I have some on the way from @Chris A Hardaway so I'll be able to check those out too. @xmetalmaniac is also a lens cutter here. All of them can do a job for you, on the Juliets at least.

    I would really like to get the C-Wires done first, just to see how it works out. Anyone know who could cut those?

    I would definitely be interested in helping. My only thing is I need to know what color you'd like, and I'd need the frame to get you proper fit. Can you post a picture of the frame so I can see which generation C-Wire? The older gens were smaller and much easier to find donor lenses for.
