Oakley Prescription Sunglasses utilize a new digital surfacing technology that eliminates the "Fishbowl Effect"

The biggest misconception they hear about Oakley Sunglasses is that XL indicates Xtra Large. It does not. This refers to the lens shape. Models like the Oakley Flak Jacket and Half Jacket are offered with the Regular lens shape or an XLJ lens shape. New models like the Oakley Fast Jacket and the Half Jacket 2.0 are also offered with the regular lens shape, but now the model with the less tapered lens is called the XL, not XLJ. In all four models the frame with the Regular lens shape is exactly the same size as the XL or XLJ frame. So shoppers can change their lens shape without changing frames.

Oakley Iridium coatings are another source of confusion. This is not just a flash coating ON the lens. It is an oxide coating infused IN the lens. The reflective quality of these Iridium coatings makes it easy to confuse them with a flash coating (aka Mirror Coating). But unlike a flash coating the Iridium coating actually has an optical benefit. So the wearer receives all the benefits of the base lens color, as well as the contrast benefits of the Iridium coating.

Oakley Prescription Sunglasses utilize a new digital prescription lens surfacing technology that eliminates the “Fishbowl Effect” traditionally associated with putting prescription lenses in wrapped sunglasses. By recalculating the back curve at every point on the lens this new Oakley True Digital® prescription lenses are incredibly accurate throughout the entire lens.
