Oakley Prescription Eyeglasses Frames: Modern, Hip, Trendy Specs
Jim Jannard, a man with ideas that no one at the time believed in but him, started Oakley in 1975 with just a few hundred dollars and the invention of a motorcycle grip made of patented Unobtainium©. With this, the brand began the journey to becoming one of the top names for performance gear, apparel, and eyewear in the world.
Oakley began its eyewear empire in 1984 by developing shades designed specifically for athletes and those with active lifestyles, but it has since expanded its offerings to include prescription eyeglasses and RX sun as well. All its glasses boast the innovative technologies and high-style designs that define the brand. Indeed, the brand is synonymous with cutting-edge, quality craftsmanship.
Eyeglasses come in a diverse range of frames for men and women, in which progressive and single vision lenses are available to suit your particular vision correction needs. In fact, your lenses will be carefully checked against your prescription by on-staff certified opticians before your new glasses are delivered to you.
Oakley's spectacles have the brand’s unmistakable style and quality engineering, but they are suitable for everyday activities, both indoors and out. You can choose from among dozens of bold and confident eye glasses styles that range from professional to edgy, and you can further customize their products with numerous color and shape selections.
Prescription eyeglasses frame styles often allow you to choose from many color combinations. Some frames make a bold, bright statement with arms in electric blue, lime green, or bright orange. Other frames, such as semi-rimless and rimless designs, have a more classic and minimalistic look with matte black and brushed metallic finishes.
Even these lightweight and seemingly delicate frames, though, are engineered with signature durability and three-point fit system, which maximizes optical performance by holding the lenses in precise optical alignment. Oakley offers both lifestyle and performance eyeglasses that transition seamlessly from the office to the outdoors.
Shapes represented in the eyeglasses for men
include the sporty Crosslink Sweep (pictured, which has the iconic wrap-around shape), classic rectangles, and rounded edges. Popular shapes in the line of glasses for women
include cat-eyes, ovals, rectangles, and rounded edges. Materials commonly used to construct these eyeglass frames include lightweight and durable titanium, barely-there O Metal™, and slip-resistant Unobtainium©. The latter two materials were developed for durability and performance. Unobtanium© ear pieces are particularly comfortable and slip-resistant, even when the wearer is active and sweaty. Some styles even include interchangeable arms for maximum fashion versatility.
If you want to make a strong statement about your personal style and your exceptional taste in premium eyewear, Oakley prescription eyeglasses are a good choice for you. Characterized by bold shapes and colorful accents combined with edgy styling and technologically superior materials, Oakleys are modern, hip, and trendy specs that you can customize to express your individuality in unprecedented ways.
