Developing a lens is a perfect science. The closer you come to perfect, the better the experience.
All Oakley lenses and frames are purpose built for each other, as one cohesive unit, ensuring for maximized performance. Each cut of the lens is precise — too small of a cut and the lens will move within the frame, and too large of a cut and the lens will not fit properly. It is Oakley’s lens research, technologies, design, material and manufacturing that results in eyewear good enough for the world’s best.
With total control over the process and details, Oakley produce one comprehensive, single-layered lens. Most brands take existing lenses and coat or glue layers of material to enhance vision. At Oakley, materials are mixed into the lenses making a molecular bond — no glues and no adhesives — resulting in a clear view to see details earlier, faster and deeper.
“What sets Oakley’s Field Testing program apart from the competition is our un-compromised commitment and experience to testing products in the exact environment and conditions the professional athlete perform in on a global scale. Oakley products are designed to meet the rigors of competition as well as celebrate the spirit of the sport. It’s imperative we experience how the product performs in the field before it goes on an athlete or consumers face. Prizm lens technology went through this process with four years of fielding testing, 20-30 testing trips in seven different countries. This commitment to product performance provides the best product for the best athletes and consumers on the planet.”
