Hi Guys,

I go straight to the point. I have a 30ish eyewear collection at this moment. I´ve kept them always inside their hardcases and socks and then all together in a big cupboard.

I moved last month and I placed them on my basement where I could look at them, try them out etc as I keep there my tools and bikes as well.

I checked today that some of the old items (one radarlock, one 30th aniv razorblades and two m frames) show that flaking issue.

The basement is 20-21C and 60% humidity one month ago (51% now)... Should I put the googles away o that environment would make no harm to the lenses.

Cheers,
C

I have never seen a definitive answer as to why some Oakley lenses “flake”, and others don’t.
So long as you’ve kept them free of sweat and personal care product contamination, it sounds like you’ve treated them better than most folk.
This fate befalls us all, randomly, and for no apparent reason.
I blame poltergeists.

Thanks for the answer.

I clean them regularly with a special sunglasses spray and the typical textile handkerchief for that purpose.

No mentioned needed that I clean the as well after every use.

I've found the same. Certain lenses just don't stand the test of time. The same goes for some frames. I've had a pair of Moons just snap while sitting on a shelf. I have pretty much everything in my office at this point, so it's temperature controlled, but I would like to find a good way to store them if need be.

I collect a lot of things, so there's only so much stuff I can avoid stashing away in a basement or attic.
