Oakley Prescription Lenses High-Tech Lenses for the Digital Age
Plutonite: Oakley's Plutonite® lens material is engineered to stop every wavelength of ultraviolet radiation, not just the lower energy form called "UVA". In fact, Plutonite
® inherently blocks 100% of UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light up to 400 nanometers. The protection is built into
the lens material. It's not a thin surface coating that can become scratched, leaving your dilated pupils exposed to UV leaks.
Iridium Coating: Optional Iridium® lens coatings allow you to tune transmission for specific light conditions. Superheated metal oxides are
fused to the lens at the molecular level, permanently bonding to create an optically uniform layer.
Light Weight: Oakley prescription lenses are engineered with Oakley's proprietary Plutonite, an ultra-lightweight material that provides you optimum performance with maximum comfort.
Optical Precision: Oakley prescription lenses are ground to your individual prescription with optical precision that exceeds industry standards. The Oakley RX system maps light rays in a 3D grid to achieve precise coordination with your optical lobes and the entire surface of each custom ground lens.
XYZ Optics®: Oakley's patented XYZ Optics®
maintains visual clarity at all angles of view, even at the edge of raked-back lens contours that maximize peripheral vision and protection. Conventional eyewear bends light rays and distorts vision at the lens periphery, but XYZ Optics®
maps the full lens contour to the human eye, ensuring razor-sharp vision at all angles.
Impact Resistant: Oakley premium eyewear surpasses the protection requirements for high-mass impact, as defined by The American National Standards Institute (ANSI). Oakley premium eyewear also surpasses the ANSI Z87.1 test for high-velocity impact
Color Inherence: Oakley RX lenses utilize color inherent technology that integrates the color deep within the lens material. Plutonite lenses are never tinted so the color is always rich and permanent and unlike surface tints, it will never fade.
Oakley prescription sunglass lenses are the ideal lenses for people who spend a lot of time outdoors and need permanant sunglasses.
For those who are in-and-out of doors on a frequent basis, don't forget Framesdirect.com also offers Transitions lenses for regular plastic lenses that change from light to dark as you move in and out of UV light.
