    Long time no post.

    Was gifted a new pair today as an early birthday gift, and I thought I would share.

    This here is the Oakley Thinlink with matte black frame and black iridium polarized lens. It is my first pair of non-sporty Oakleys in a very long time, but the fit is fantastic overall. Can't wait to wear them tomorrow!

    Next to it is the Radarlock Path with photochromic lenses for comparison...not like I would be able to compare much given how differ these two are.

    Still, I would like to share my initial thoughts about experiencing polarized sunglasses for the first time. After buying them and bringing them home, I tried them on again. I learned firsthand that polarized lenses do not play well with smartphone or computer screens. My iPhone's screen protector turned into a rainbow, while my computer display just went completely dark. That got me into a panic as I was working on something and I thought I forgot to save, but the moment I took off my shades, everything was okay again. I'm sure some of you may have already known about it, but still, I hope you guys have a chuckle at my expense :p And I'm definitely not returning this pair anytime soon.

    Happy birthday to me! - ImageUploadedByTapatalk1465141490.654284.jpg

    Happy birthday and congrats also. That's funny that you freaked out about the screen. ;)

    Happy birthday and congrats!

    One of the many reasons I'm not a huge fan of polarized glasses....
