Get Authentic Oakley Sun Glasses And Not Fakes

If you need to ask why Oakley sun glasses, then you maybe you shouldn’t buy them. Although Oakley sunglasses UK are perhaps not as up-to-date with the ranges available in the USA, the UK is not that far behind in terms of availability.

Jim Jannard started Oakley in 1975 from his garage with just $300. His first product was a motorcycle handlebar grip that increased the grip of the hands when the hands sweated. These were quickly picked up on by top sportsmen. Other products, including eyewear followed.

Oakley look for the unexpected but always produce well researched and tested, quality products that have been designed and produced to exceptional standards. The only downside for the consumer is that this type of quality will not come cheaply.

Oakley sun glasses are popular as they certainly set fashion trends, but also, are popular for many different forms of sports usage. High Definition Optics ® allows for sharper and clearer vision and provides 100% UV protection that is so important to protect the eyes from the sun. Different lens tints will allow the user to optimise their performance in different types of sport, and you can also find Oakley sun glasses with photo chromic and polarised properties.

Some glasses will have greater impact protection if they are coated with Plutonite ®lens materials. Amazingly, Plutonite will protect from a metal spike weighing just over a pound in weight and dropped from four feet, or, a ¼ inch steel shot travelling at just over 100 miles per hour! A Hydrophobic® coating will make glasses great for water sports (or the English weather!), as water will just bead off without streaking. It also makes the glasses more resistant to finger smudges, oils, dirt and dust particles.

Styles suitable for women include Half Jacket, Minute 2.0 and Flak Jacket. If you find that glasses tend to sit too low on your face, slide down your nose, touch at your temples or cheeks, or feel narrow at the sides of your head, you may need a European/Asian fit. These can be found in the Half Jacket, Flak and Radar Pitch ranges among others.

The worst thing about the success of Oakley sun glasses are the imitations. As with most popular merchandise, there will be those who seek to make a profit with inferior quality copies. Fine – if that’s what you want. However, if you want to know your glasses are genuine and will last and protect your eyes; do not mess with fakes.

Matrix Sunglasses For Dedicated Fans

Matrix Morpheus Sunglasses
– $ 49.95
The Matrix Revolutions Morpheus Sunglasses are some of the coolest sunglasses you’ll ever own. These sunglasses are awesome, they clip right onto your nose and since these are the premium style with silicon nose pads, they stay on quite well. These sunglasses are very light, you’ll hardly be able to tell you’re wearing them, and, yes, they’re comfortable to wear.

If you are a fan of The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded and/or The Matrix Revolutions then you may be interested in getting your hands on some of the impressive designer sunglasses worn in these films.

Matrix sunglasses were brought to the market because of demand, and a frequent question asked has been, “where can I find the sunglasses worn in The Matrix?” So whether you fancy Morpheus, Trinity, Neo Seraph, The Twins or Agent Smith styles, the best bit is the price. They really are affordable with greatly reduced prices from about $30.

The range of sunglasses are shatterproof with scratch-resistant polycarbonate lenses and with metal frames. Naturally, they also have UV400 protection which is the best protection you can get for your eyes.

As an example, what makes Morpheus Matrix sunglasses so quirky? If you’ve seen them, then you probably already know … they don’t have any arms! So, how do they stay on? They simply clip on to the bridge of your nose with the help of some very specific silicon nose pads. A word of caution though, if the bridge of your nose is particularly wide, you might want to give these designer sun glasses a miss. Now, do they really stay on? Yes, and you can do the majority of things while wearing them; bouncing on a trampoline, running, on the beach, driving etc. However, if you are planning going on a roller coaster or bungee jumping or similar, I would take them off or you may lose them! They do take some adjusting to, but once you have, they’re absolutely fine and do tend to create lots of interest from your friends and those that wonder how they magically ‘float’ on your face!

How To Tell Fake From Authentic Polarised Sunglasses

If you are looking for a new pair of glasses to protect your eyes from the suns rays, you may like to consider purchasing a decent pair of polarised sunglasses. There is no need to spend a lot of money, although a great deal of the designer sunglasses will protect you and may not be as expensive as you think.

Originally developed by Edwin Land in 1936, lenses are now either coated with a protective substance or have a filter enclosed within them. Polarisation now absorbs solar glare from reflective surfaces by up to 99% and counteracts the bright glare to the eye by restricting the light waves to a singular direction.

Its not just in the summer you need worry about the sun but in the winter as well especially if you are involved in winter sports. For example, if you are skiing or snowboarding you need to make sure your ski goggles protect you adequately as the sun will bounce off the snow.  However, if there is a danger of thin ice polarised sunglasses could cause problems because in some cases, definition will be lost because of the lack of reflection off the landscape. If there is no snow but bright conditions youll also get this bounce effect from wet surfaces. An example of someone who would benefit from polarised sunglasses are fisherman, as these would make it easier for them to see more clearly into the water without the sun blinding their vision. Therefore it is important to remember that safety rather than fashion should be your foremost consideration.

Considering there are many fakes around, test whether your polarised sunglasses are authentic by rotating them and watching to see if the light passing through the lens changes intensity – it should not. Don’t go for cheap imitations, it is your sight we are talking about.

Your sunglasses should also protect against 100% of all UV rays ( UVA, UVB and UVC). You should also remember that despite the colour or darkness of the lens, it is the clear outer coating that filters the rays and not the colour.

UV radiation comes in at least two primary forms, UVA and UVB and both carry their own dangers. UVA can lead to premature skin aging while UVB may cause skin cancer. UVC is a third type of radiation and is mostly found in artificial sources such as certain types of lamps. While short-term exposure is not really harmful to the eyes, repeated and extended exposure is. What you need to look for is a 99 – 100% protection against UV, irrespective of the price of your glasses or the darkness of the lens.

They may cost you a little more but even if they are a second pair, there are certainly many benefits to having polarised sunglasses.
