Introducing The Dawn of the Most Advanced Lens Technology: Oakley PRIZM Lens Technology
Everyone has heard the hype with the Oakley PRIZM lenses, but do you really know what it’s all about? Oakley has launched their PRIZM lenses with prescription capabilities and everyone is going crazy. We can’t blame anyone though, because when a great sports eyewear company announces it will be launching a ground breaking sport specific, prescription-ready lens technology, it’s a pretty big deal…especially when PRIZM lenses are some of the most exceptional lenses in the eyewear industry.
What is PRIZM?
Oakley PRIZM prescription polarized sunglasses are a game changer in the lens world. PRIZM is a new Oakley lens technology that fine tunes vision for sport-specific environments. The lenses work to emphasize colors where the eye is most sensitive to detail, which in return, helps to enhance performance and safety. It is Oakley’s first purpose-built lens for specific sports and activities, and it’s quiet legendary.
KEY BENEFITS OF OAKLEY PRIZM LENSES:
– Sharpens visual perception to help you see more clearly and react faster.
– Enhances color recognition to help you quickly spot what you need to see.
– Optimizes your ability to better see the important moving objects in your periphery.
How Do Oakley PRIZM Lenses Work?
Using specially engineered lens tints, Oakley PRIZM works to filter out any “noisy” light that could interfere with vision, while emphasizing the colors necessary for optimal performance. Oakley achieved this innovation by utilizing “hyperspectral imaging,” a technique used by spy satellites that helps analyze light in real-world environments with levels of detail and precision that set unprecedented standards in a pair of lenses.
Sport-Specific PRIZM Lenses
There are PRIZM lenses for Snow, Golf, Road, Trail, Baseball Infield, Baseball Outfield, Golf, Fishing, and Daily. The mad scientists at Oakley have tested these sporting environments, and from there, created a lens option to see the perfect colors in those environment. The improved color contrasts creates drastic improvement in visual experiences, which results in enhanced performance while you do the things you love. On a high level, the lenses enhance the colors you need to see for maximum sport performance and filter out the rest. Here’s a look at how these game-changing lenses function per sport.
