All Oakley eyewear are tested to meet ANSI high velocity and high impact standards. However, please note that not all are marked as certified ANSI Z87. Thus, while other Oakley styles may surpass these standards, we cannot endorse these particular styles as industrial safety glasses as they are not marked for ANSI Z87 compliance. Should you require Z87 certified Oakley eyewear, please visit our Oakley Safety Glasses section.
Oakley items are available for US sales only. We will ship only to United States destinations and US military bases. Oakley items on orders shipping outside the US will be removed before the order is processed.
Oakley's protective sunglasses offer many benefits to the wearer other than just a stylish appeal. The thing that makes Oakley's protective sunglasses so much more superior than the competition is the materials that are used to manufacture these sunglasses. Oakley sunglasses are engineered from precision aligned Platonite lenses. The Platonite lenses are balanced by a three-point system that allows them to be perfectly aligned with the sunglasses frame.
Every pair of Oakley sunglasses are guaranteed to meet and even exceed testing put forth by the American National Standard Institute. However, the Industrial M-Frame, SI M-Frame designed sunglasses and protective sunglasses have a Z87.1 stamp which means they are safety compliant. Furthermore, these types of sunglasses also benefit from 100 percent UVA, UVB and UVC protection.
Additionally, the Oakley Industrial M Frame and the SI M Frame are the only type of Oakley eye wear that boasts the ANSI Z87 safety compliant markings. Both types of Oakley frames are also guaranteed against impact and are designed to have high clarity. There are different types of lens colors for the Oakley safety glasses depending on how the individual is using them. For example, the yellow lens are designed to help those in low light conditions while gray lenses help the wearer to see in medium to bright light better.
There are also other beneficial options that are designed into Oakley sunglasses as well. If needed, the company may specially design unique lenses for the wearer. There is also an option for the lenses to be designed using photocromic technology designed by Transitions. Some Oakley sunglasses lenses benefit from hydrophobic and oloephobic special coatings; this is designed to help prevent dust, oil, lotions or other grimy smears from adhering to the Oakley lenses.
