Oakley Outlet has sunglasses for any sport and any lighting conditions. Here we review basic Oakley information to help you zero in on the perfect pair of sunglasses.
First, when you see XL or XLJ do not think Extra Large. Most Oakley semi-rimless frames are available with a rounded lens or a squared off lens. The standard models come with the rounded lens. The XL or XLJ models come with the squared off lens. The XL lenses do have just a bit more coverage than the standard lens. But you can put an XL lens in the regular frame and vice versa.
On our Oakley page you will see that we generally show the model with the regular cut lens right below the model with the XL or XLJ lens. For example, the regular Flak Jacket is right below the Flak Jacket XLJ. These two frames are exactly the same size.
-Tinted Lenses – A tint is applied to the outside of a lens. Oakley offers their tinted lenses with or without Oakley Iridium coatings.
-Polarized Lenses – Polarization is a film inside the lens that only allows light to pass straight through the lens. Scattered light, or glare, is blocked by this film. Polarized lenses are preferred by most athletes, and Ophthalmologists often prescribe polarized lenses for patients who have had a recent eye surgery, had their eyes dilated, or in general have light sensitive eyes. A polarized lens is considered a healthier lens in comparison to a standard tinted lens. Some electronic displays can be harder to read with polarized lenses, but tilting your head a bit when this happens generally solved the problem.
-Transitions Lenses – These lenses darken in the presence of UV Light, or sunlight. There are 5 transition colors from Oakley, 3 of which are Iridium transitions. These are triggered by UV Light, therefore Transitions lenses will not darken in a car.
–Iridium Lenses – This is an additional layer of contrast that is infused into lens, similar to the way a polarization coating is in the lens. This Oakley patented technology often has a mirrored effect along with the additional layer of contrast. Iridium lenses are available with almost any lens color, polarized or not.
-Prism Lenses – These coatings are the newest Oakley innovation. Similar to the Iridium coatings, but the level of contrast is more finely tuned. For example, Prism lenses for Baseball Infield provide excellent contrast with a white ball against a brown or neutral background. Prism lenses for Outfield provide excellent contrast with a white ball against a blue or lighter colored background, like the sky.
