I own an oakley juliet ruby red lens. Unfortunately, the lens have visible scratches. I contacted the Oakly Japan if they have replacement lens available. I found out that they no longer replace lens, instead they could repair the lens. But their stock of ruby red coating is not so red but the iridium is more yellow. The cost is 12,600 yen inclusive of tax. I would like to seek your advice if it practical to have my lens coated or just buy a new lens maybe change it to fire iridium. I trust the wisdom of our oakley godfathers to give me some advice.
I also never thought that iridium coating is possible. I was thinking of replacing my lens but it no replacement is available. But I learned this from Oakley Japan. Does anybody from Oakley USA or any dealer from this group who knows about this ruby red iridium coating technology?
Thanks OluvrNawlins for the pics.... Guys, which is then more expensive, to coat it or buy a new one? Or change it to other lenses, e.g. fire iridium. Here in Japan it cost 12,600 yen or 100+ for the coating. Do you have idea how much is the a ruby red lens or fire iridium replacement lens?
I am skeptical about repairing of scratched lenses. Basically, if you do not strip the coat and instead jump straight to re-mirror the lens, the scratches will just show up in a more nasty way. Also that is assuming the scratches only affect the mirror coat and not the base lens.
