HDO Proven

Here’s a chance to put some sunglasses to the test. Pick a style and check out the results. The left side shows the standard test pattern and what it looks like viewed through an Oakley HDO® lens. The right shows what you’re getting with conventional sunglasses.

Clarity Test Comparison

These pictures show how lenses with Standard Definition Optics can dull your visual clarity. The lines in the Definition Pattern blur together, just like everything you see with inferior sunglasses. The problem gets worse with distance. However, note how the lens with High Definition Optics® keeps the lines sharp and distinct. HDO® gives you the best possible clarity for unbeatable safety, performance and comfort.

Prism Test Comparison

A laser is fired through each lens in a frame. The dots should come together at the center if both eyes see the same image, but lenses with Standard Definition Optics bend light. Objects aren’t really where you see them, and your brain is wasting valuable runtime to put the images together. HDO® virtually eliminates this distortion so everything is where you see it. Performance and safety are optimized because your brain can concentrate on the task at hand.

Refractive Test Comparison

Look how ordinary lenses with Standard Definition Optics distort the image. They magnify it and skew it to the side. If you’ve ever tried on somebody’s prescription glasses, you know how blinding it can be. The same thing happens with non-prescription sunglasses that don’t have High Definition Optics®. With HDO®, you get accurate and precise vision. What you don’t get is eyestrain and compromised performance.
