The Oakley eyewear brand specialises in sports and sunglasses. It began in 197 when James Jannard created motorbike grips with a material he patented himself. Gradually, the brand opened up to create the first model of motorbike glasses in 1980, which consisted of an arched cylindrical lens, which has become characteristic of the brand.
Oakley lenses are distinguished by their striking colours and shapes that adapt to the sporting activity we want. In addition, the lenses are very easy to clean and have an anti-smudge barrier that repels dirt, oils and creams that we may have on our feet. This ultimately keeps the lens cleaner for longer and the clarity and sharpness are virtually permanent.
Within Oakley lenses, there are different types and colours, so in this article, we are going to explain what are the types of Oakley lenses.
Oakley has several types of lenses with different treatments, as well as shapes, as they have lenses and screens. Within these shapes, we also find uniform, mirrored and polarized lenses.
Stay and discover them!
Oakley Lenses Prizm
Oakley Prizm lenses are lenses created especially for cycling, as we are talking about a brand that specializes in sports glasses. This type of lens has the main characteristic of filtering the background noise of the light that affects the vision when we practice this sport. In addition to this, it improves contrast and sharpness. Finally, it is only worth adding that these lenses are also polarized, so we get extra protection.
There are 3 types of Prizm lenses:
- Trail: Enhance red and brown tones to avoid sand or stones.
- Road: These are used to detect changes in surface texture, such as when encountering fog.
- Golf: They are specially designed for golf, as the contrast between colours is so deep that distances can be better measured.
Oakley Iridium Lenses
Oakley Iridium lenses is the way the brand calls the lenses with mirror treatment, that is to say, those that reflect the image. There are some colours that we can find that can combine both treatments: Prizm and iridium, which means being able to combine both treatments for better sports vision. In addition, there is also the possibility of having these treatments with polarised lenses.
