    Hello, Sorry I'm new to this and don't know if I've done it right. I've just bought some new Oakley sunglasses, and to be honest I know absolutely nothing about them, apart from the fact that they are from the square wire range.it says "Square Wire Light w/ BlkIridPlrz" on the box.

    I've only gone and scratched the lenses and don't know if there from the Square Wire 2.0 or 3.0 range,or if theres even a difference in lenses between 2.0 and 3.0? So any help would be much appreciated

    Also has anybody got any experience with none Oakley replacement lenses? I've seen a company called Revant offering what they claim to be good quality replacement lenses for square wires, and in a larger colour range than Oakley, but much cheaper, is it a case of you get what you pay for,or are they worth considering? Thanks

    What you have is the New Square Wire II, not the 2.0 or 3.0.

    They are not, different lenses. The good news is your pair is fairly new and replacements should be available. The bad news is it's the Ducati version making an original OEM lens swap a little harder due to the etching.

    Your lenses have DUCATI etched down in the bottom of the left one correct? So to be correct a plain pair of black iridium lenses will fit but are not the ones it came with. If that doesnt bother you no big deal bit will hurt resale value later down the road.
