When Oakley glasses first hit the scene back in the 70ís, they were designed especially and exclusively for sports wear. Producing a range of sports glasses for motocross and skiing, Oakley focused on high visibility and producing sports eyewear that gave as wide an area of vision as possible. This focus on design was rewarded with a prominence in the industry and today you can get a pair of Oakley glasses for lifestyle wear as well as for sports. With more than 600 patents for eyewear, there is a unique appeal for this designer brand of glasses and itís not just because of their expertise. You can now buy Oakleys in a range of styles, each bringing their own stylish designs to your casual day wear:
- Oakley Frogskins
- Oakley Batwolf

The first Oakley glasses designed for casual wear were their Frogskins, first released in the 80ís. This vintage design for their designer glasses hasnít lost any of its appeal and newer more modern designs offer the perfect blend of lifestyle and sports wear. As glasses have become more technology based, Oakley has lead the way with their unique lenses and frames. Each providing lightweight protection from glare and UV rays, their treated sports glasses give as high visibility as possible without altering colours and vision. Protecting your retinas from sunlight can be incredibly important for those who are outdoors a great deal and glare can be dangerous if your participating in extreme sports or even if youíre simply driving around. Providing quality designs, Oakley glasses are suitable for everyday wear and their premium designs will give you the best protection possible.
So versatile are Oakley glasses that they can even be used to protect vision in extreme circumstances. The company donated several Oakleys to the Chiliean Miners who were trapped underground in darkness for months. This protected their retinas from the shock of seeing light again for the first time and proved how effective these designer glasses are. Whilst you may not need them for such extreme changes in light, you can still get your own Oakley glasses for every day use and protect your vision. No one enjoys squinting and the unique style that you can get from a pair of Oakleys can completely transform the way you look at the world!
