Oakley is a world leaders in sunglasses innovation. The company produces high quality lenses to go with the frame design. The OO polarized lenses are available on a number of the products and have the Oakley qualities of not giving blurred images or too much refraction (bending of light which magnifies).
Oakley OO polarized lenses are a single layer polarized lens meaning that there is no glue or sandwiching effect, which can detract from visual quality. Polarized lenses are produced from Polaroid plastic sheeting which reduces the glare caused by light reflected from polarizing surfaces such as water.
The OO lens delivers a true color recognition not seen in many models of sunglasses, which take much of the color out of the view you see through the glasses. Oakley OO lenses push down the blue tones in the lens, which enables you to see other colors better when looking through OO sunglasses in certain environments such as bright sunlight.
Because Oakley OO lenses are produced from a single layer of material, there is less distortion created by glue and other layers. There is also very little magnification of the image that you see through Oakley OO lenses and less bending of the light giving you an accurate view through the lens.
