    I recently picked up a pair of Oakley MAG Magnesium FOUR S.
    I have read a few comments about flaking that occurs with the Magnesium sunglasses....can someone tell me if this this correct?
    Any tips on preventing this from happening? Did I goof...?
    Thanks everyone!!

    I have every mag frame except the M version. All of mine are shelf whores and are rarely ever worn. The flaking or wearing occurs from being put on and taken off time after time. The acids that are secreted from your skin also will speed up the wearing process. The frames are ceramic coated magnesium. The ceramic coating is not sealed so this does happen with theses frames. You didn't make a mistake in buying them, but they have had issue with this occurring since they were made....

    There is not much you can do to stop it from occurring, other then limiting your wear time in them, wiping them off if your sweating. Wear them on weekends, or limited occasions.
