    I just found my previous sunglasses that I thought I lost but with one problem: for some reason, the left lens is missing. Don't know where it went but my brother probably had something to do with it. :(

    I love the ones I have and I only prefer Raybans because they look the most professional. I've been eyeing the Gunmetal Flight Pande for a while but I don't know if that would be a wise purchase. If anyone has any recommendations on some other good sunglasses like the ones I have that would be sweet.

    If I could just get the lens replaced on my old sunglasses, that would be much better as I don't even think that they make this model anymore. Does anyone know if someone offers this kind of service? i just want the lens replaced. Is there anywhere I can go near the Bay Area in California? Here is some pictures of my broken sunglasses :( Taken with my iPhone, therefore quality sucks. :

    You should try a sunglass shop or lenscrafters. something like that, they might be able to custom fit a lens in there...

    They should be able to replace the lens, or have them sent out. I know Sunglass Hut will give you the stuff to mail it back for repairs.

    Yeah there's a lenscrafters nearby where I live. i will check if they do that sort of thing. I didn't buy it from them though.

    Is replacing the lens fairly cheap?

    What brand are they? A lot of the bigger brands have really good replacement policies. I have a friend who only wears Ray Ban because every time he sits on them, or steps on them, or whatever, they replace them altogether.

    Well they are Ray bans haha. But they are about 5 years old. They still look really nice though.
