Eyewear is our passion. Since 1978, Oakley has led the way in maximizing lens style and technical performance in sunglasses and holds more than 600 patents. Oakley is famed for its insuperable lens technologies such as High Definition Optics® (HDO®) which virtually eliminates the problems of distortion and optical flaws in their lenses. Oakley is continually seeking problems, solving them with inventions and wrapping those inventions in art. This philosophy has made Oakley one of the most iconic and inimitable brands on the market, with innovations that police, military and K9 handlers worldwide depend on.
