Elite athletes or those seeking sun protection will find Oakley HDO lenses provide superior clarity and protection. Tested to meet or exceed American National Standards Institute performance standards - which serve as the gold standard in eyewear design - these lenses offer unmatched safety and performance.
Photochromic technology is also available with these lenses, which darken and lighten automatically in response to changing light conditions. This helps you adjust without straining your eyes or compromising visibility.
Oakley sport sunglasses use Plutonite lens material that shields your eyes from 100% UVA, UVB and UVC rays. Furthermore, it's the only lens to block out all 380nm blue light which is hazardous to eyes.
This premium plastic boasts superior optical clarity and scratch resistance, as well as photochromic performance. Furthermore, it's resistant to chemical exposure, water and oil.
Plastic lenses, often found in lower-priced novelty and consumer sunglasses, can be easily cleaned with mild soap and water. Use a soft, non-abrasive cloth to wipe away debris from both front and back of lenses for thorough cleanup.
