There are SO many benefits to wearing sunglasses for style or for sports! They shield your eyes from the sun, dust, wind and also help reduce glare. Protecting your eyes from ultraviolet rays is important to decrease the risk of eye disorders such as eyelid cancer, cataracts, macular degeneration and more. Sunglasses are also a great way to express your style. Our office carries name brands such as Oakley,  RayBan, Maui Jim and many others. Sunglasses should be worn year-round in our high altitude environment.

Sunglasses Lens Types

Polarized Lenses

Polarized lenses contain a special filter that reflective glare, helping your see objects more clearly while also protecting your eyes from harmful UVA and UVB light. 

Photochromic

Photochromic (Transition) lenses are eyeglass lenses that darken automatically when exposed to sunlight, then fade back when you return indoors. The molecules responsible for causing photochromic lenses to darken are activated by the sun’s ultraviolet radiation, making this an ideal lens for those who spend time outdoors.

Sun Glasses

Besides giving you a stylish look, sunglasses are essential in protecting the health of your eyes. Polarized lenses contain a special filter that reduces glare, helping your see objects more clearly while also protecting your eyes from harmful UVA and UVB light. Gradient, solid, and specialized tints are also available.

Introducing The Oakley Prizm™ Technology - An Athletes Dream

 

South Africa is a land known for its sports-teams and world-class athletes, in celebration of athletes around the world, Oakley has created a product that truly speaks to the sportsman and woman’s needs. Whether you are a pro player or a movement enthusiast we at Optical Options think you will fall in love with this new addition to the Oakley range. We are excited to introduce to you the latest technology in sports eyewear:

Prizm™ Eyewear is a sportsman/woman’s dream when it comes to visual precision out on the field or on the road. So in a nut shell, Prizm™ lens technology fine tunes vision for specific sports and environments, these lenses emphasise colours where the eye is most sensitive to detail. Not only do Prizm™ lenses look impressive but they scientifically improve performance and safety by enhancing vision, using specially engineered lens tints. 

This is a world first where lenses have been purpose-built for specific outdoor activities. The optical benefits of this visionary technology are (excuse the pun) game-changing:

  • Sharpens visual acuity to help you see with more clarity and react faster.

  • Enhances colour recognition to help you spot what you need to see.

  • Optimises your ability to see and track moving objects in your periphery.

  • Improves performance and safety to help you compete with confidence.

But how do they work?
The human eye is extremely sensitive to detail but each environment puts its own demands on your vision. Seeing the right colours will help you differentiate things in your visual field. Like subtle changes in the texture of road surfaces or where the golf green ends and the rough begins. Peripheral vision is less sensitive to details, so any improvements in colour contrast mean improving performance for athletes.

Oakley Prizm™ technology filters out the background “noise” of light that interferes with vision while emphasising the colours you need to see for optimal performance. Think of it as ultra-precise colour tuning, designed specifically for the environment of your sport or activity. Additionally, every iris coating has been chosen to interact precisely with the Prizm™ lens and environment for optimal performance.

Come in and see for yourself how Oakley Prizm™ technology specifically affects individual sporting types, from fishing to cycling and every movement in between.
