Share Article

After years of selling prescription sunglasses to sports enthusiasts ADS Sports Eyewear launched a competition to determine the best options for active people. Prescription Oakley sunglasses were found to be the most versatile, most functional, and the most cost effective. Several criteria were used in this evaluation.

This year Oakley had the best service, best lens selection, and the most competitive prescription pricing.

ADS Sports Eyewear launched a campaign to allow its customers to select the “Best Prescription Sports Eyewear” brand. Input was received from a variety of sources including Facebook, online customer reviews and direct customer contact. The criteria used to determine the “Best Prescription Sports Sunglasses” included versatility, comfort, value, and optical quality. The winner in each category was Prescription Oakley Sunglasses.

While the winner was not a surprise, the margin of victory was. Versatility was clearly a priority, and several new models from Oakley were instantly popular. The new Oakley Fast Jacket was the only semi-rimless model with easily interchangeable lenses. The new Oakley Racing Jacket is a completely different design for runners and cyclists that also has interchangeable lenses. The ability to use a single frame for multiple prescription lenses was an important consideration for competitors who deal with changing light conditions.

Polarized lenses have become a bigger priority for sports enthusiasts and Oakley had minimal competition in this area. Oakley offers twelve polarized prescription lens options. No other company offered more than five.

ADS Sports Eyewear uses digital lens surfacing exclusively on wrapped prescription sunglasses. This was also true of all the brands that were considered for the “Best of” competition. The Oakley True Digital lab had the best turn-around time (2 – 4 days) and the best lens guaranty. Most importantly, Oakley prescription prices were the most competitive. Single vision prescriptions were about the same price as the older version of these lenses, and progressive lenses were priced less than the ADS Sports Eyewear in-house lenses.

In summary, Oakley has clearly cornered the market for prescription sports sunglasses. This year Oakley had the best service, best lens selection, and the most competitive prescription pricing. ADS Sports Eyewear will continue this competition on an annual basis.

ADS Sports Eyewear has specialized in prescription sports sunglasses for the past 12 years. Located in the North Dallas area, they also sell eyewear on their website, http://www.ADSEyewear.com.
