Everything you need to know about OAKLEY technology

The core of Oakley’s optical superiority is built on a true passion for enhancing performance in sports. Founder Jim Jannard first innovation was a new type of motorcycle handgrip with a unique tread and a shape that more closely fit into the rider’s closed hand. It was quickly adopted by top pros of the day for its ability to grip more with sweat.  Oakley made its next mark with the introduction of its O Frame goggle, which became a mainstay in motocross racing for almost 20 years.

From there, Jim launched into Oakley Optics with “Eyeshades”, taking on the optical industry’s big power players. Focusing on sunglasses as vital equipment instead of a generic accessory was groundbreaking. It positioned Oakley as the top in optical sport performance, where it continues to stand today. Professional athletes quickly took notice and today, no matter what sport you watch, from Cricket to Mountain Biking, you’ll see its top athletes sporting Oakley performance eyewear.

What Does Oakley Offer in Lens Technology?

Oakley True Digital – Oakley True Digital™ lenses are uniquely designed for athletes and sports enthusiasts who demand the best vision possible in high-wrap frames. Oakley performs their magic by digitally joining two lens zones; mid-periphery and far-periphery. Simply put, these are the best active lifestyle lenses money can buy.

Plutonite – Oakley’s Plutonite Lens Material is lightweight and shatterproof; perfect for an active lifestyle. Oakley Plutonite stops every wavelength of ultraviolet radiation which includes UV-A, UV-B, UV-C and Blue Light. The Plutonite in Oakley’s performance sunglasses meets and exceeds the impact standards of the American National Standards Institute.  This means that as debris kicked up by a passing truck can travel up to 102mph and can be as heavy as a metal spike without chattering you lenses.

Oakley HDPolarized™ – Oakley HDPolarized™ sunglasses protect your eyes from harsh glare without compromising clarity. Oakley’s polarized lenses are engineered differently than most. Most companies polarize lenses by gluing addition filter layers on a plain lens. Each additional layer creates further distortion and loss of clarity. Instead of lots of layers, Oakley takes a powerful polarized filter and forms the lens around it with Plutonite, their proprietary polycarbonate. This creates a lens that is lean and powerful enough to block intense glare without compromising clarity.

Oakley’s Transitions® SOLFX™ – (also known as Photochromic) lenses darken and lighten automatically in response to changing intensity of UV light.

Oakley High Definition Optics (HDO) – provides clearer, sharper and more accurate vision.  Oakley’s HDO technology virtually eliminates any distortion that is common with high-wrapped sunglasses.  Conventional lenses can magnify images as you look through them, the HDO lenses give you a more accurate vision across your entire field of view.

The perfect lenses for running.

You are an avid runner but the sun and road glare sometimes make it difficult?

The blinding glare from flat surfaces can strain your eyes and fatigue you to the point where you’re ready to quit, or probably should because your mental focus is gone.

That’s why OAKLEY engineered the OO® Red Iridium® Polarized lens to cut 99% of glare from paths and pavement.

Oakley’s red iridium Prizm lenses enhances the bright light and shadow areas of vision which in turns help you spot changes in texture of road surfaces.

Harsh rays of light won’t distract you, and with the improved depth perception of enhanced visual contrast, you’ll spot loose gravel and sand, small cracks, potholes and even slick areas that can be danger zones.

Conventional lenses are all about blocking the sun, making you see less. Oakley lenses help you see more — more detail, more depth and more definition. We achieve it by optimizing lenses for specific environments, and that’s why sunglasses are no longer considered generic accessories. The Oakley Performance Lens Tints are another piece of essential equipment, a critical necessity for sport.
