The Flak Jacket XLJ prescription glasses from Oakley may seem expensive, but if you need glasses to ride, they could be the game-changer you’ve been waiting for.
Standard prescription lenses in other glasses give limited peripheral vision because the prescription lens is limited to the area that sits directly in front of your eyes, so we’ve never bothered much with prescription riding glasses before.
But these new lenses feature Dual Peripheral Technology. The lens zones have been joined, so the prescription extends right round the wrap.The obvious benefit of this is much greater peripheral vision – you don’t need to turn your head to get the benefit of a sharper view.
