Frame Material - C-5
Unsatisfied with the selection of metals offered by the optical industry, Oakley went their own way and created their own. C-5 fuses five metallic compounds to create an alloy which forms an ultra-strong, ultra-lightweight chassis for a wide range of frames. It testament to the remarkable strength of C-5, Oakley use this material in their delicately-sculptured wire frames which boast deceptively high durability.
High Definition Optics
The lenses of every Oakley product are designed to meet Oakley’s own exacting standards for clarity and distortion-free vision. Compared to competitor lenses, Oakley sunglasses deliver uncompromising vision, providing the wearer with a true picture of their surroundings in any direction.
Plutonite Lens Material
Plutonite is used to make authentic Oakley prescription lenses. Superior to standard polycarbonate lens material, Oakley’s proprietary blend of elements gives remarkable clarity and strength, and was designed to meet the demands of professional athletes.
Ultraviolet light can cause a range of long-term damage to the eye, including macular degeneration, cataracts and pterygium. The Plutonite lens material found in all Oakley sunglasses filters out 100% of all UVA, UVB, UVC, and harmful blue light up to 400nm.
HD Polarised Options Available
Glare from reflective surfaces can seriously compromise your vision. It can tire the eyes through squinting in response to intense light and wash out colours, meaning you can’t enjoy the sun or your sport to the fullest. Oakley’s HD Polarised lenses block 99% of reflected glare, meaning you can enjoy the clearest views possible.
Prizm Options Available
Utilising the latest in colour science, Prizm lenses have been formulated to enhance the contrast of specific light wavelengths, making the views of your pursuit clearer and allowing you to pick out finer detail. Prizm gives the competitive edge to sportspeople through tailor-made lenses designed to perform best in certain environments.
Oakley are an industry leader in corrective vision for sports performance eyewear. Using the latest Oakley True Digital (OTD) II technology, your prescription, the lens shape and frame shape of your sunglasses are considered to optimise vision across more of the lens than conventionally-made alternatives. The result is eyewear that helps you see clearer to perform better than ever.
