Can someone please explain to me, how Oakley puts prescription lens into
their M-Frames sunglasses (Mumbo Heaters)? Is it with a modified nose
piece/Prescription insert, like BOLLEs?
Thanks in advance,
Perscriptions are designed for a flat plane, so when it it is embedded in
a wrap around blade you will get distorted viewing. At least this is what
I have been told by at least two Oakley users who have now returned to the
>Thanks in advance,
Same nose piece, no double lenses like Bolle.
Oakley claims they have corrected the problem with the new M-frame
frames. I've cracked S-E-V-E-N M-frames with the RX Mumbo and two
RX frames. Oakley has replace all broken pieces, but now I'm requesting
a completely new style of Oakley RX glasses after spending $360.
It's been almost a month now after returning the 8th broken M-frame
and 3rd broken lens, and I haven't heard a thing back from Oakley.
In the meantime, I went to Lens Crafters, and they made me a really
cool pair of Sobe RX sports glasses in less than a day, for $160.
I'll keep this newgroup posted on my outcome with Oakley.
I have also heard that LeMond is lending is expertise to Bolle to improve
their current line of standard and perscription glasses.
And one more question ... it seems that you can never get polarized lenses
anymore. When rapidly descending mountain canyons and you approach a shady
spot it is very difficult to see what is in the spot (i.e. potholes)
without polarized lenses ... why are they no longer valued?
