    I've had my current Oakley frame for almost 6 years. Still looks new, so I picked out another Oakley frame.

    When I'm picking lenses for it, I have two options

    1. $233.95 Hi-index 1.67, Transitions, Crizal coating

    or

    2. $350 Oakley plutonite, transitions, Oakley AR coating

    I got option #1 last time and they have held up perfectly.

    Do I spend the extra $120 on Oakley lenses? Anyone have experience with them? Is Plutonite that much better?

    I would stick with option #1 and save the $120. Nobody is going to notice or care about whether your lenses are plutonite or regulars.

    Go with option 1. You didn't have issues with them the first time around, might as well save yourself $120 that you can put towards a new Apple product :D

    Lol, I was going to say this exact same thing. I asked them the difference and they really couldn't tell me. I got some generic BS.

    I also found out the place where I'm ordering is running a promotion on lenses (non Oakley) so after that, they're over $180 less. Plus the regular lenses are still Zeiss

    Sounds like a good decision to me! As nice as Oakley's are, sometimes you do have to pay a bit more, the lenses right there are a good example.
