All the answers about Oakley PRIZM lenses
Do you know Oakley Prizm glasses™ ?
Prizm ™ technology is designed to enhance contrast and color, allowing more detail to be seen.
Oakley uses a proprietary blend of lens tints to achieve color optimization.
Prizm ™ plays on the perception of colors, which visually translates into vivid and vibrant colors. In terms of contrast, these lenses make it possible to enhance the perception of depth. You will be able to better perceive objects and details of your surroundings. This allows you to better see details that would have been invisible to the naked eye!
Prizm ™ polarized lenses
Oakley also offers a combination of two technologies that complement each other perfectly: Prizm ™ and polarization. Prizm ™ will intensify the colors, when the polarization will reduce glare.
But not all Prizm lenses are polarized, because polarization is not always useful and necessary. It will be a plus, for example, to reduce reflections on the water, which allows you to see better under the surface of the water.
On the other hand, according to Oakley, glare can be a useful indicator in some cases. In golf, for example, the glare will allow you to follow the trajectory of the ball.
On the road, reflections can help you locate wet, slippery surfaces, or icy areas.
