Lens – Oakley Lenses
Protection against ultraviolet light has little to
do with the color of the lens. The protection is designed into Oakley’s
Plutonite® lens material, so full UV filtering is a standard
feature with all Oakley lenses, no matter what the shade. Even clear
Oakley lenses block 100% of all UVA, UVB, UVC and dangerous blue
light. The raked-back curvature of Oakley sunglasses allows additional
protection by blocking UV from the periphery.
When light enters through a sunglass lens, some wavelengths
are reflected by the surface and others are absorbed by the lens
itself. The light that actually reaches your eye is a measure of
the lens transmission level. With Oakley’s wide range of optional
lens shades, you can decide to have as little as 9% of light reach
your eye, or as much as 93%.
A performance gain in sports, polarization shields the retina from
glare. Oakley dismissed the industry standards and invented an injection
molding process that infuses the lens material around the intricated
polarizer. This protects the filter, minimizes distortion, and maximizes
||Polarized Oakley eyewear benefits from the UV
and impact protection of Plutonite lens material, the glare
reduction and contrast enhancement of Iridium lens coatings,
and the wide-angle clarity of XYZ Optics.
This breakthrough technology permits dual-spherical lenses to transmit
light waves with unmatched integrity. By providing correction along
three axes–not just two–XYZ Optics™ ensures clarity over
the full angular range while minimizing distortion caused by refraction.
It allows for wrapped, raked-back configurations that maximize peripheral
vision and protection against sun, wind, and side impact.

Oakley’s proprietary lens material inherently blocks 100% of all
UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light. Durable, lightweight Plutonite®
provides startling optical clarity and protection against high-mass
and high-velocity impact, exceeding the ANSI Z87.1 performance requirements
of the American National Standards Institute.
