Oakley PRIZM Lens Technology has been described as ‘an almost unfair advantage’ in the world of sports. The contrast boost PRIZM lenses provide allow you to see every little detail in your environment, giving you a heightened sense of vision, and allowing you to perform at your peak. Oakley PRIZM Road Jade joins the original PRIZM Road along with the more recent PRIZM Road Black. Check out a full review of all three lenses below.

Differences

  • Aesthetics- The most notable difference between all three PRIZM Road lenses is aesthetic. PRIZM Road features a bright orange/red lens. PRIZM Road Jade embraces shades of green with a nice jade iridium mirror. PRIZM Road Black is more subtle with a black lens and black iridium finish.
  • VLT(Visible Light Transmission)- PRIZM Road allows the most light through the lens with a VLT of 20%. PRIZM Road Jade have a VLT of 15% and PRIZM Road Black has a darker tint and allows only 11% of surrounding light through the lens.
  • Conditions- Oakley engineers designed PRIZM Road Black for sunny road environments where extra protection is needed. PRIZM Road Jade works in both bright light and overcast conditions. The original PRIZM Road lens will get you by in a variety of weather but Road Black is most optimal followed by Road Jade.

 

Similarities

  • Enhanced Details- All PRIZM Road lenses have a rose base tint. This means that when you are wearing the sunglasses, everything you see has a warm rose hue to it. The base tint is what enhances contrast and gives you more vividness in the details on the road. No matter which lens you choose, they are all specifically fine-tuned for the road environment. Therefor, the whites and yellows of the lanes in the road are more vibrant, crack and potholes are easier to see, and the external landscape is more pleasing to the eye.
  • UV Protection- All Oakley PRIZM lenses offer 100% UV protection.
  • Rx-ability- All three PRIZM Road lenses are now available in prescription. You can get yours at SportRx!
