How To Remove Peeling Lenses From Oakley Sunglasses

Removing peeling lenses from Oakley sunglasses can be a delicate process to avoid damaging the frame or the replacement lenses you plan to install. Here's a general step-by-step guide to help you remove peeling lenses from your Oakley sunglasses:


Materials you will need:

  • Replacement lenses (if applicable).
  • A clean, soft workspace.
  • A microfiber cloth or lens cleaning cloth.
  • A small screwdriver or a similar tool (if your sunglasses have screws).
  • A hairdryer or heat gun (optional).



  • Prepare your workspace: Find a clean and well-lit area to work on your sunglasses. Lay down a soft cloth to protect the lenses and the frame from scratches.
  • Inspect your sunglasses: Examine your Oakley sunglasses to determine whether the lenses are held in place by screws or by a different method.
    • If there are visible screws on the frame near the lenses, you may need to remove these screws before proceeding. Use a small screwdriver to carefully remove them. Be sure to keep the screws in a safe place.
    • If there are no screws visible, your sunglasses may have lenses that are held in place by a different mechanism. In this case, you can skip the screw removal step.
  • Apply heat (if needed): If your sunglasses have non-screwed lenses and the adhesive holding the peeling lenses in place is stubborn, you can use a hairdryer or heat gun to gently heat the area around the lens. This can soften the adhesive and make it easier to remove the lenses.
  • Carefully remove the lenses: Once the adhesive is softened (if you used heat), or if there are no screws involved, gently and slowly start prying the peeling lens away from the frame. Be cautious not to use excessive force to avoid damaging the frame. You can use your fingers or a plastic tool (like a guitar pick or a plastic spudger) to help lift the lens.
  • Work your way around: Gradually work your way around the lens, gently pulling it away from the frame. Be patient and take your time to avoid cracking or breaking the lens.
  • Clean the frame: After you've successfully removed the peeling lens, use a microfiber cloth to clean any adhesive residue from the frame. Ensure it's completely clean and free of any debris before installing new lenses.
  • Install replacement lenses (if applicable): If you have replacement lenses, carefully align and insert them into the frame. Make sure they fit securely and evenly.
  • Reattach screws (if applicable): If you removed screws earlier, carefully reattach them to secure the new lenses in place. Tighten them snugly but not too tight to avoid damaging the frame.
  • Clean and polish: Use a lens cleaning cloth to clean and polish your Oakley sunglasses to remove any smudges or fingerprints.


That's it! You should now have successfully removed the peeling lenses from your Oakley sunglasses and, if necessary, installed replacement lenses. Be patient and gentle throughout the process to avoid any damage to your sunglasses.
