    Hi all, my first post here so hoping I've put this thread in the correct place!

    I stumbled across this forum late last night after again searching for anywhere that does or has replacement lenses for Oakley glasses.

    To put it in a nutshell I have what has been identified by a company that offers Oakley repairs as a first generation (oval shaped) silver/bronze(ish?) coloured titanium framed Whisker with the VR28 black iridium polarised lenses.

    Unfortunately a few years ago my left lens got a 2-3 cm scratch across it that whilst it isn't in normal view it is noticeable when looking downwards.

    From what I gather there are 2 fitting shapes/versions with these lenses with mine typically being the discontinued first version...

    Is there anybody within this forum that can assist me in sourcing a pair of the above lenses (or just the left from a pair with a damaged right?).

    I have contacted numerous companies and nobody has been able to source me anything.
    Oakley themselves offered me 40% off a new pair of glasses but after trying numerous Oakley's on I've discovered that the VR28 is a stunning lens which makes my issue even more annoying!

    The only markings I can make out on the arm is: 2-073 60 (then an Oakley shape o) then a 9. Slightly worn so mayb other bits there missing.

    I look forward to any assistance people could give me and hope you are all having a good weekend :)

    Michael

    Picture of the lens where the scratch can be seen (the rest of the marks are from the freezer it's sitting on!)

    If all else fails you can get a custom cut VR28 lens.

    Hi, thanks for your reply, where would I get one of those from? Oakley have not been of any assistance in the searching/supply of a replacement lens...

    There are some people on that will cut some lenses for you from original Oakley VR28 replacement lenses for other models that are still available.
