PRIZM Field: Engineered for Baseball
Sunglasses are one of the most important pieces of equipment used by professional baseball players. Oakley identified this as being a crucial part of the game and saw a need for something better. That need was met through PRIZM Lens Technology. PRIZM Field is a performance-enhancing lens that is specifically designed for the baseball field environment.

How does PRIZM Field Work?
Spotting a pop fly against the background of the sky is hard to do, especially when you have mediocre sunglasses on. The ball can blend in with the clouds in the sky and the sun can throw off your vision. PRIZM Field lenses boost the critical colors and eliminate the distracting colors so you can see the important details on the field. By manipulating the light spectrum, PRIZM Field is able to enhance contrast to make the ball appear more vivid and easier to track against the textures of the field or sky.
Are PRIZM Field Lenses Polarized?
Not all PRIZM lenses are polarized. PRIZM Field is part of the PRIZM Sport lens family and aside from the fishing specific lenses, all of them are non-polarized. This is because a polarized lens may inhibit your performance. Polarized lenses are great for glare reduction and recommended for water activities or driving but the main drawback to polarized lenses is that it throws off depth perception due to the polarized filter that cuts out the horizontal wavelength found in glare. Needless to say, depth perception is crucial in baseball which is why PRIZM field isn't polarized. However, like all Oakley Authentic lenses you still get 100% UVA, UVB, and UVC protection.
