Our expert opticians handpicked every frame in our lineup of the best men's prescription gaming glasses. Let's review which criteria they used when selecting the frames.
Gaming glasses are all about comfort — both physically and visually. Frame technology is crucial for securing the former.
For a comfortable fit, gaming glasses should be lightweight and stay securely in place. Look for frame materials like Oakley's O Matter™, nylon, or high-quality acetate. These materials provide an ultra-lightweight feel and are built to last — adding longevity to the frame’s life. Rubber grip will also enhance comfort, while providing extra grip.
If you're reading this, you're probably aware of the harmful effects of blue light. Digital screens are one of the most common sources of blue light, and gaming sessions can threaten the integrity of your vision. From temporary eye fatigue to an increased risk of macular degeneration, blue light gaming glasses can ensure your visual comfort while protecting your eyes. All of the frames in our lineup are available with prescription blue light lenses.
You already know they're Rx-able, so let's check out the frames!
This classic rectangular frame gets the best of Oakley tech in the Metalink. Made from a mixed composition, this sleek frame features NanO Matter™, which is 67% thinner than acetate, and Unobtainium™ rubber grip. Straight temples are headset-compatible and alleviate any uncomfortable pressure points. The Oakley Metalink also uses TruBridge™ technology, which allows you to swap out the included nose pads for a perfect fit.
As for the lenses, Oakley PRIZM™ Gaming will change the way you play. PRIZM™ Gaming protects against harmful blue light, enhances contrast, and helps you focus better — so you can play longer.

Leave it to Oakley to create prescription gaming glasses with a wrap design. Unlike traditional eyeglasses with a flat 4-base lens, the Oakley Activate features a 6-base design for a wider field-of-vision. You'll also get extra coverage from harmful blue light. In addition, the Activate’s generous square lenses hold a range of prescriptions, including Progressive. You can also select Oakley PRIZM™ Gaming lenses for the ultimate visual gaming experience.
Built from proprietary O Matter™, the Oakley Activate is ultra-lightweight and durable. It also features one of the most custom-fitting experiences. From the easily heated and molded Ace Fit temples to the TruBridge™ technology, you'll experience a perfect fit.
