Oakley defined sport performance eyewear. Today they continue to redefine it. Together with Oakley, athletes like Bradley Wiggins and Kevin Pietersen continue to make their mark on the world. With sunglasses designed to help them, and you, Oakley are creating a whole new definition of performance.

As the undisputed leader in sport performance eyewear, Oakley continues to advance sport technology and redefine the market with patented optical innovations. Numerous patents have been awarded to the inventions behind the company’s High Definition Optics® (HDO®). HDO® virtually eliminates the problems of ordinary lenses, including distortion that bends light (so objects aren’t really where they appear to be) and optical flaws that magnify images in the manner of prescription lenses made for somebody else.

Key to Oakley's sports performance glasses are polarised lenses. Clearly crucial for many sports, sailing and fishing in particular, they are also beneficial for everyday uses like driving. Oakley polarized lenses are engineered with a liquid infusion process that bonds the polarizing filter at the molecular level, eliminating the haze and distortion found in conventional technologies. Below are seven exclusive Oakley technologies that put our polarized lenses at the top of the game. Oakley's unique technology can only mean that you reap the benefits when you strap a pair of Oakley’s on your head.

  • Axis of Polarization – The orientation of the polarizing filter is critical for performance, so Oakley polarized lenses maintain the uncompromising precision of EN1836 standards.
  • Infusion Molding – The Oakley lens material bonds to the polarizing filter at the molecular level to eliminate haze and distortion.
  • Lens Colors – You can match your optics to your environment by choosing from a spectrum of optional lens tints.
