    Ive been buying Oakley products since 1977 and so on, in 1995 of may, I lost my eyesight (I have magnifying headset goggles on as I write this) due to diabetic retinaopathy. after 5 operations on each eye, I regained some eyesight but at a drastic cost 2500/2600 eyesight, so im legally blind :-(........but that didn't stop me, I did various jobs for the next 16 years, til in 2012 of November, I started work at a Voc rehab center that hired blind people. It wasn't til March of 2013 when the Oakley spirit came back into my blood and spread throught my veins like a California wildfire,and finally hit my eyes!!
    I bought my 2nd pair of Oakleys (1st was in 1991 and they were Frogskins) and I went all out and bought customized Oakley Oil Rig from Oakley.com.
    Since then ive been making up for lost time, from march 2013, til the last week of December ( I get didability as well as minimum wage from my job, but I do spend not all on me but my Wife as well), I have bought all these glasses, a majority from OakleyVault.com and a few from Oakley.com. and another ungodly place which I shall make nameless because I dispise it "E..., .....
    so did I go overboard? I did I make up for lost time? and the worst part is................im still not finished buying.lol Gotta give Props to my loving wife who has supported me over the grueling 15 years of our marriage, as well as my Love for my Oakley sunglass hobby and obsession :)

    i might get 5 or 6 more while making sure I add my most Fav "The Pit Boss 1 and 2 " to my collection, hopefully 2014 will be when I get them as well as a few other favs I want......enjoy my last 10 months of insanity list, lol and I look forward to your looking at my list as well as your encouraging comments, and please.............take care of yourselves in 2014......as well as your eyes........thank you!

    My dad has lived In a similar situation regarding his eyes his whole life so I commend you for fighting on and through it.

    Nice variety there and good pieces. But until you get 15 bosses I can't call you thepitboss lol. Some of us are even crazier then you!

    But here is a great place for help....and bad influences in the power of spending money!

    Thanks Gang, yea I could just stay on DSSI, but then I'd have even a smaller Oakley collection.lmao, yeah im grateful that I still can see some and that Oakleys different lenses help me see even better. the VR28 l Tungsten, Bronze,and OO androse tint type lenses help me a lot.My Favs are the Pit Bulls, Monster Dogs and Pup series.i take great care of my diabetes now and I abhor and shiver the thought of anyone inheriting my collection.lol

    This one strikes me as odd. M Frames never had a 24K lens, the 2.0 frame wasn't offered with anything other than military lenses, and that is awfully cheap.

    Where are you buying these from?

    Best of luck with your eyes and your health!

    LOL good valid point..theres a guy on ebay selling legit $39 m frames only(they are SI ballistic frames I believe cant remem the sku that's why its all 00-0000) and the lens were amarket lens, but I ditched the lens and am working on getting legit Oakley m frame lens; haven't updated this list but when I do get those lens ill make sure to add them in there and nerf the 24k, btw wallleva 24k lens bite donkeys big time. trying very hard to stay away from amarket lens. they ARE NOT worth it., as soon as I get the time and money ill eventually ditach all amarket lens I have and go with legit Oakley lens..why settle for less right? lol .thanks for your encouragement!

    edit-
    heres the link, had to go back in my ebay summary a lil but I found the dude and recent auction, he must have a line on em still, night get me another pair for back up, btw I love my m frames they rock man! anyways before I get carried away.heres the libk:

    Ah, that makes a lot more sense.

    If you can, get a 3.0 frame. Same as the 2.0, but they're made without rubber on the stems and a tighter wrap. I like wearing them a lot more, they fit under hats and ear protection a lot better. A little more difficult to put on one-handed is all.
