Uncompromised Clarity for Razor Sharp Focus
Oakley High Definition Optics® (HDO®) lenses optimize safety and performance to meet the uncompromising demands of professional athletes who settle for nothing less than the clearest, sharpest, most accurate vision. It offers truer, more accurate vision versus conventional lenses that magnify images and make objects appear shifted from their true position. With HDO, Oakley lenses meet or exceed the testing standards of the American National Standards Institute (the yardstick of performance for the eyewear industry).
The Clarity Test measures the sharpness of images viewed through the lens. The Refractive Power Test measures how inferior lenses distort vision by magnifying images, and the Prism Test measures how the lenses bend light and make objects appear shifted from their true position. These tests show how conventional lenses can compromise your vision.
Glare Protection with Uncompromised Clarity
A headache from glare can ruin your day. Golfers have to deal with the performance-killing distraction of glare from water hazards, bunkers and flat areas. Fishing sessions can be futile when blinding rays bounce off water and hide the keepers. Driving in glare can be risky, and road cyclists know how glare can hide potholes and other dangers. Any skier or snowboarder can tell you how glare distracts, diminishes mental focus and drains energy with tension. We developed HDPolarized lenses for elite athletes but our technology serves everyone. Because glare doesn’t care if you’re a sport champion, weekend warrior or just someone who enjoys the sun.
Look Through Less To See More
Polarized lenses filter out most glare, but not all polarized lenses are made equally. The best polarized lens is just that – one lens. Oakley HDPolarized Technology eliminates the need for glues and films that distort your vision.
Our HDPolarized lenses are in a class by themselves. We use a precise infusion molding process to produce one comprehensive, single-layered lens. No glue, no sandwiching, no mustard or mayo. Just the clearest Polarized lens you can find.
THE OTHER GUYS
This just in: it’s hard to see through glue. Any glue bonded material layer in a sunglass diminishes clarity and exaggerates distortion. This performance degradation makes it hard to tell whether you’re looking at the road or a really big piece of turkey jerky.
ON THE SAME PAGE
Both lenses in a single pair of Oakley sunglasses are manufactured at the same time to perfectly align and center the axis of polarization. Doing so prevents unwanted and distractive glare from sneaking through any part of the lens.
Competitor lenses are manufactured at different times without precise alignment of the axis of polarization. These mismatched pairs result in compromised glare protection and clarity, putting you at greater risk of eye strain, headaches, and the rear bumper of an F250.
