Comparison of ordinary Oakley lenses vs Oakley Transition Photochromic Lenses


Whether you’re golfing, mountain biking or pounding pavement on a training run at dawn, you can’t maintain peak performance unless your eyes keep up with your environment. That’s why SOLFX Transitions™ lenses are engineered to darken and lighten automatically.

They help you adapt to changing light conditions so you’ll always perform at your best.
They filter out 100% of all UV, even when the lens color lightens to help you see in dimmer environments where UV is still a threat.
You get the added benefit of having lenses that aren’t too dark when the sun pulls a disappearing act, or too light when it knifes through clouds.
Let’s say you’re jogging up a trail, or biking down a mountain and railing turns on sketchy hardpack. With SOLFX Transitions™ technology, your lenses lighten to show you hazards on shaded paths, then darken to shield your eyes on open trail. But that’s just half the story.

Oakley has combined Transitions photochromic technology with balanced light filtering to boost visual contrast, even in low light. That’s a key benefit for athletes because it improves depth perception. On top of that, they get the unbeatable clarity of Oakley’s High Definition Optics® (HDO®).
