    I was just wondering if while wearing them people can see your eyes.
    How much reflectivity does the black iridium coating offer these lenses?

    Ah, as I've done a little more research, it appears the wearer's eyes are visible in some lighting, but not in others.
    Thanks very much!

    Same as with any lens from Oakley. If there's light coming from behind the lens, or if there's insufficient light to make the iridium shine you'll lose the mirror effect and the lens can be seen through.

    Vr28 black iridium is quickly becoming my favorite lens. I love the contrast, almost rose colored.
