Oakley PRIZM Football Shields

What’s Oakley PRIZM? Does it really make a big difference? YES, it does. Enough of a difference for the NFL to bend their no-tint rule to allow an exception for this game-changing lens technology. PRIZM Lens Technology is designed to enhance color and contrast so you can see more detail. The contrast is important because it enhances depth perception and highlights features on the field. AKA- Very helpful for catching footballs.

Impact Protection

When it comes to impact protection, Oakley does not disappoint. The lens material is made from Plutonite, a material designed and manufactured exclusively for Oakley PRIZM. It is proprietary to Oakley but is essentially the most optically pure form of polycarbonate. This gives you razor sharp focus and maximum protection all in one package. The injection-molded Plutonite also uses a unique geometry to minimize distortion with the curvature of the shield. This easily solves a common issue with football shields in the past.

UV Protection

Oakley Plutonite shields block out 100% UVA, UVB, and UVC and harmful blue light up to 400 nanometers. This means that even clear Oakley shields will protect your eyes from the sun on the brightest of days. This reduces eye fatigue and allows you to focus on the play at hand without compromises.

Anti-Fog & Scratch Resistance

All Oakley Football shields are treated with AFR which means anti-fog and anti-scratch protection. No matter how hard the hits get or how sweaty you become, Oakley shields are built to perform on a professional level of play.
