Gents,
I possess and cherish the nicest RayBan sunglasses; The RB3339 001 with the green BL lenses.
Unfortunately the lenses got scratched during my 15+ year ownership.
Anybody got an idea how to obtain a new set of lenses ?
thanks !

A RB 3339 001 has got arista (gold) frame and G15-XLT Glasses. So they are not "Green". Green perusal is RB-3, and for RB3339 there is no RB-3 in my 2008 catalogue.

Sweet!
You can just Google "Glass Lens replacements" and there will be someone who will cut a new lens to fit your glasses and done.... Cost $50 for nonpolorised and more for polorised.

The classic RB Way lens was/is called "green"..... It is the G15
yeah, did the google. tried like 5 sites. none list the RB3339 as an option. Guess the model is just too cool for them ;)

Yeah no, they don't need the style mate. They cut them from a round piece of glass and can cut almost any shape you want.

I have had all types of lenses cut for my B&L glasses. Don't look for one of the "big sites", just look for a local optomitrist that works with coloured glasse too.... Or, if you are in the US, there is a chain store owned by Lux that you can go to (can't remeber the name, but I used to take my Persol there to get fixed) and I think they cut coloured class lenses.

This is my guy - https://drspecs.co.nz/ it cost me $50 per pair for G15 non-polarised lenses or $120 for polarised.
