What to look for in Oakley Eyeglasses

Before we get into the frame breakdown, there are a few key features to consider when choosing the right Oakley Eyeglasses to meet your specific needs. When you familiarize yourself with these, it will make choosing your sunglasses that much easier.

Lens Technology

When it comes to lens tech, you have multiple options. You can go with Oakley authentic lenses or you can customize your very own with the SportRx Lens Catalog. If you are looking to enhance your gaming experience, check out our PRIZM™ Guide to learn more about this amazing lens technology.

Grip

Unobtainium™ is Oakley’s proprietary grip material that gets stickier and tackier the MORE you sweat, making it perfect for sports.

Frame Material

  • O-Matter™- Nylon base material that is 25% lighter and 2x stronger than Acetate
  • Nano-Matter™- An offshoot of O-Matter™ that results in a 30% lighter frame with even more flexibility
  • Titanium– This is Oakley’s ultra-lightweight, ultra-strong, and corrosion-resistant material.
  • C-5™ Alloy– A blend of five metal compounds that helps combine toughness with flexibility

Now that you know what to look for, let’s get into the sunglasses!
