Gaming glasses are crucial to achieving both physical and visual comfort. Frame technology will take care of the former, while lens technology enhances the latter.
Gaming glasses should feel lightweight and stay securely in place. Look for frame materials like Oakley's O Matter™, nylon, or high-quality acetate. These materials ensure an ultra-lightweight feel and are built to last — adding longevity to the frame’s life.
Rubber grip further enhances your comfort and keeps the frame locked in place. So, when you're jumping up and celebrating a win, or throwing yourself back in defeat, your frames won’t fly across the room (controllers are another story).
Digital screens are one of the most common sources of harmful blue light. Found in the 400-450 nanometer (nm) range of the visible light spectrum, this blue light poses several risks toward the integrity of a person’s vision. From temporary eye fatigue to increased risk of macular degeneration, blue light gaming glasses can ensure your visual comfort while protecting your eyes. Learn more about the risks associated with harmful blue light by visiting our blog on blue light lenses.
Let's get into the frames! Handpicked by our opticians, these styles will have you seeing clearly and in style.
Classic design gets the Oakley performance treatment in the Metalink. Featuring a mixed composition in a timeless rectangular shape, the Oakley Metalink is more than meets the eye. Made from Oakley's NanO Matter™, which is 67% thinner than acetate, these frames feel so lightweight you may even forget you're wearing glasses. Stainless steel temples deliver a sleek look and feature Unobtainium™ rubber for extra grip. We also love the straight temples, which are headset-compatible!
As for the lenses, Oakley PRIZM™ Gaming will change the way you play. These lenses paved the way in Esports with its sharper vision and blue light protection. They are also Rx-able.
