What are Oakley Prizm™ lenses?
DID YOU KNOW?
Oakley frames are also designed using the latest technology in sportswear to craft performance enhancing eyewear.
Oakley Iridium® lenses
Oakley Iridium lenses are mirrored lenses, which have a reflective optical coating on the lenses. These lenses have a proprietary tint and molecular anti-glare coating, which help to balance light reflection, transmission, and absorption of the lens. You can choose from various tints, including black, ice, jade, chrome, and fire.
Chrome and fire tints are ideal for everyday wear and are suitable for all purposes, whereas the other tints are better for sports. Some Oakley sunglasses can have a combination of Oakley Prizm lenses and Iridium lenses, providing optimal vision for athletes.

Oakley HD polarized lenses
Oakley polarized lenses have a coating to specifically filter out light and reduce glare, protecting eyes from long-term UV damage, and reducing eye strain. When horizontal rays of sunlight hit polarized sunglasses, they reflect more light, and you see less glare.
Polarization is similar to adding blinds to your window, reducing the sun entering the room. If you spend a lot of time outdoors or playing watersports, Oakley polarized sunglasses are perfect for your lifestyle. The best part is, many Oakley Iridium and Prizm lenses can be combined with polarization, providing the best protection from the sun.
