    Going to Vegas in a month, plan to camp out in the pool at the Gold Nugget. My question is will Chlorine exposure for a long period of time hurt the lenses?

    I'll wash them when I'm done at the end of the day but.... just wondering.

    As long as you wash them after you will be ok

    Yup, atrain gave you the correct answer. Chlorine won't hurt anything about Oakley's, but do make sure you wash them afterwards.

    I'd be more worried about the emblems coming off depending on the type of glasses they are.

    I lifeguarded for 3 years in scalpels, barely ever cleaning them. Still in great condition, so you will be fine. Cleaning is always recommended though

    You don't want any chemical to dry on your lenses, so just make sure you clean them after swimming.

    I dove right into the Bellagio pool with my flak jackets. They were fine. Only issue i had was this haze/film that developed over the lenses after they dried out. I had a bottle of lens cleaner in the room and it came off just fine. Like everyone else has already said, just clean them afterwards.

    Sunscreen is a big problem for lenses when it dries on them.

    Chlorine, heat, sweat and sunscreen makes for a terrible combination. Be sure to thoroughly rinse your glasses off with water and hand soap nightly.
