Do you change those lenses yourself, Patty? Do you need a screw drive to do it?

Bill, they just pop in and out. I carry Oakley lenses with the yellow tint. Perfect for early morning or evening rides and cloudy days as they make it seem like day light. I don't ride when it is dark outside. Oakley optics are the best on the market.

Bill, as Ray said the lens easily pops right out. Mine do the same; my 10 year old ones did as well. I can even pop off the arms on my frames and change them. Why? That's what I asked. Just because you can. He said it is done for styling purposes for people who want something different at various times and sometimes sports teams all want the same 'side' colors.

I don't photograph nearly as well as Patricia but here's what mine look like. If you do consider buying Oakley's I would strongly recommend going to one of their stores. The closest to me was an hour away but I was able to try on a variety of styles. The one I bought normally comes with a larger lens (XL) but that lens did not fit my face. When I smiled or laughed my cheeks hit the bottom of the lens, whereas this style works good for me (see I did not say "great").

You got the answer but I have photos, fresh from my cellphone.




^3-13-2019 Front of my Racing Jacket Oakleys with the transition prescription distance only lenses.




^It's easy to change lenses. Just lift the padded nose piece and swing down the bottom lense holder. Out comes the lens.








^Racing Jacket model. I don't think they make this frame anymore.


^3-12-2019 View from my Lake Forest, CA house with the Oakley factory circled. The rape and pillage of the hills below me is to finish off putting in 900 homes. That's a big reason I spend most of the time in Colorado.

Just got new prescription glasses.

New Transitions actually darken in the car. Since I should wear my specs when driving all of my cool sunglasses are obsolete

Now that's funny. I was going to post pretty much the same thing when I saw that picture.
