Athletes of all kinds are quick to resort to shield sunglasses. And why wouldn’t you be inclined to pick up a pair of your own? Shield sunglasses offer maximum coverage for the most optimal protection and vision that’ll allow for enhanced performance while playing the sports you love.

Although the process is a bit complicated, shield sunglasses can be transformed into prescription shield sunglasses with the help of our amazing opticians. In fact, our SportRx opticians have combined their expertise with the science of Oakley sport sunglasses, and have created what has become highly popular prescription sport sunglasses as a result.

Here’s how it works:

Sunglasses like the Oakley Radar EV Path and the Oakley Jawbreaker are constructed with a single lens shield, hence what makes their name, “shield sunglasses.” However, this single lens make-up is what puts optical abilities to the test. Implementing prescription is challenging, but not impossible. To say that SportRx is up for the challenge is an understatement.

We make do with the Embedded Lens System. Imagine cutting two large sections out of the lens with a laser. When this happens, the remainder of the lens is left to act like a regular frame like other sunglasses. When transforming your shield sunglasses into prescription shield sunglasses, the now-empty frame enables us to mount a prescription lens into it.

The result of these types of prescription sunglasses has been amazing. They are extremely functional, very durable, the lenses are in place very well, and they offer a unique high-tech look.

While there is some getting used to with the “frame” surrounding your prescription, people tend to adjust very easily and quickly. Because of the way this prescription technology works, some of the field of vision is subtracted. However, they are still going to be generally bigger than your day-to-day eye glasses, so you’re still going to get a wide range of coverage and peripheral vision.
