How to choose glasses – guide




Oakley is a company, that has two priorities: the quality of offered products and customer satisfaction. Oakley is a leader in sunglasses and goggles manufacture. It's market position is a result of exclusive use of materials, such as Plutonite® or Lexan®, that are main components of lenses. These materials are a guarantee of premium optics and impact protection, they filter out 100% of UVA, UVB, UVC & harmful blue light. While choosing Oakley products you need to remember, that their main advantage is technology.




Lenses in Oakley glasses divide into two categories: contour lenses (increasing contrast) for bad weather conditions and tinted lenses, that will work well on sunny days.


Tinted lenses in Oakley glasses:

 Fire Iridium, Black Iridium, Grey, Dark Grey, Bronze, Dark Bronze, VR28 Black Iridium, Ice Iridium, Gold Iridium, Blue Iridium, Ruby Iridium.



Among contour lenses you can find:

Persimmon, H.I. Persimmon, Yellow, H.I. Yellow, G30, Pink Iridium, VR28

There is also Clear lens, but, as you can guess, it has no colour.





Oakley gives you an opportunity to improve those lenses with such technologies, as Iridium®, Polarization, Transition® and Hydrophobic®. Iridium® lenses have special coating, which reduces glare and increase contrast for improved vision even in low light conditions. Polarized lenses block glare that is magnified by flat surfaces like water and pavement. Ordinary polarized lenses come with haze and distortion. But Oakley polarized lenses have over 99% efficiency, what makes them the best polarized lenses in the world! ACIVATED BY TRANSITIONS® lenses use photochromic technology and darken and lighten automatically in response to changing light. HYDROPHOBIC® coating prevents dirt, dust, oils and water drops from clinging to the lens, making it easy to keep lenses clean. Each of the mentioned technologies is daily useful. While choosing your new glasses you should be guided by the purposes for which you need them.



If you look for frames for athletes, comfort and perfect fit should be your priorities. In such case, the best option will be “sport” sunglasses, made from UNBOTANIUM® material. Iridium® and Hydrohobic® coatings are the most important technologies, that should be used in sport sunglasses because of their properties. As far as lenses are concerned, Transitions® are useful for mountain and road cyclists, who need to adapt to changing environment during the race. Polarization is recommended especially for road cyclists, who would make the best use of their advantages.


Because of the wide range of lenses colours, Oakley sunglasses can be a perfect gadget for young people, who strive for originality. Just look at FrogSkins™ or Jupiter™ frames. For those, who prefer more subdued style, Oakley created „Active” and „Life Style” categories. In a nutshell: even the most demanding customer will find a frame, that tickles his/her fancy.


Car drivers constitute the big and important group among all sunglasses users. If the driving comfort is a factor determining a purchase of sunglasses, remember about the most important case, which is safety. The irreplaceable Polarization, reducing the blinding glare that reflects from pavement or other cars' windows, combined with Iridium® coating, will significantly increase your safety.
