Oakley Prescription Lenses
Oakley prescription lenses are made the same way as most Oakley products – to perfection. Oakley True Digital Freeform Technologytm (OTD) lenses are digitally optimized point by point on the back surface to help provide high definition vision. This provides greater clarity, wider field of vision, and higher prescriptions in the Oakley high-wrap frames. Oakley Rx lenses are available for both clear eyeglass lenses, and for Oakley prescription sunglasses, but lenses can only be installed in an Oakley frame. If you have an Oakley frame already and want to get Oakley lenses for it, we can install them through our Replacement Lenses service.
Authentic Oakley Prescription Lenses are Etched for Authenticity
Only Oakley Authentic prescription lenses come laser-etched with the Oakley “O” – an icon of innovation and leading technology – for proof of Oakley authenticity and uncompromising quality.
Oakley Stealthtm Anti-Reflective Coating
Oakley Authentic prescription lenses are available with Oakley Stealthtm, an anti-reflective coating on the interior and exterior surface of the lens (backside only for Rx sunglasses) that helps to reduce glare, and also to repel smudges, body oils, water and dust. This keeps your lenses cleaner and to stay that way longer. Stealthtm is engineered for the needs of athletes and sports enthusiasts. Prescription lenses with Stealthtm are designed to combat the dirty, scratch-prone lenses that become an inevitable part of sport and life.

Oakley Rx Lenses Assortment
Oakley prescription lenses are available in a wide selection of indexes, materials, technologies and coatings, so it is very likely that most people will be able to benefit from them. Single vision lenses and progressive lenses come in basic plastic (1.50 index), Plutonitetm (a type of polycarbonate, 1.59 index), O Authentics high index (1.67 index), and the thinnest material on planet earth, the O Authentics ultra high index (1.74 index) – designed for only the most extreme prescriptions.
O Authentics 1.50 Index
An entry lens, the O Authentics 1.50 offers good optical quality at an affordable cost. It is lightweight, about half the weight of glass lenses, and shatter resistant, more shatter resistant than glass lenses. Ultraviolet (UV) protection up to 87% UVA and 100% UVB is included without an additional coating. Although this lens in only suitable for prescriptions under +/- 4.00, it offers the best clarity because the higher the index, the lower is the clarity: It has an ABBE value of 54.
Plutonitetm 1.59 Index
Plutonitetm is Oakley’s version of a polycarbonate lens, which is ideal for sports because it is designed to provide protection and durability. It provides maximum impact resistance making it ideal for athletes (especially in sports with flying objects), and it is also 20% lighter than the 1.50 lenses. It should be used for prescription no higher than +/- 6.00, and it does provide 100% UV protection without an additional coating.
O Authentics 1.67 Index
The O Authentics 1.67 is the lens to choose if your prescription is between +/-6.00 to +/-8.00, because it 25% lighter than the 1.59 index lenses. It is also much thinner than the Plutonitetm, and it still offers shatter resistance, a sleeker profile, and full UV protection without an additional coating.
O Authentics 1.74 Index
The O Authentics 1.74 lens is the thinnest lens on the planet, for very strong prescriptions over +/-8.00. If you have a lower prescription, you get no benefit from paying more for this lens. It is 10% thinner than the 1.67 index lens, and 50% thinner than the 1.50 lens. It still offers shatter resistance, the flattest profile possible, and full UV protection without an additional coating.
Oakley Prescription Sunglasses Lenses
Oakley sun lenses are also available with your prescription. Oakley offers a huge selection of their most famous sunglass lens colors in prescription, but not all. Although they are offered both in single vision lenses and progressive sunglass lenses, the true breakthrough in lens technology came when Oakley pioneered putting their progressive lenses into wrap sunglasses designs, which enabled Oakley to further develop a progressive lens. Oakley Progressive Sunglass lenses take performance to the next level because the progressive design is further optimized for the particular sport you are doing. For example, the progressive Golf design has a larger mid to long distance viewing area, so that you can follow the ball as it flies. The cycling and fishing lenses have a larger distance viewing area so you can survey the area, and the reading portion is smaller.
