Circa 1975, Oakley sunglasses are best suited to individuals who lead an active lifestyle.  Oakley currently holds more than 600 patents for eyewear, materials and performance gear.

Oakley lenses and frames are designed to protect against impact, sun and wind. The lenses are made of a patented material, dubbed Plutonite, that characteristically filters out 100% of all UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light up to 400 nm, even in its natural state (with no lens tint.)
