Looking for a great pair of sunglasses that will optimize your on the court game, look great on the patio after a long match, or even when you’re lounging at the beach? Well, Oakley may just have your covered with their all-new PRIZM lenses that were specifically designed to sharpen and enhance vision in both bright and dark conditions. Testing both the Moonlighter PRIZM™ Daily Polarized for women and the Latch™ Square PRIZM™ Daily Polarized for men, we were initially impressed with the light-weight nature of the frames and the crisp-clarity when we tried them on.
To summarize, when wearing the PRIZM™ Daily Polarized lenses, dull colors become more vibrant for a sharper contrast and better visual experience. Catering to a wide array of sports, the PRIZM lenses can also be worn for road, trail, golf, mx, cricket, deep water and field sport. Although the Moonlighter PRIZM™ Daily Polarized and Latch™ Square PRIZM™ Daily Polarized were not specifically designed for tennis players, we’ve always felt that the best type of frame is one that embraces the leisurely look, but still packs the necessary polarized traits. Using these frames in court conditions that were bright and well over 30C (86F), we found these models to hold up great and provide more than enough clarity and protection.
Top features on the Latch™ Square PRIZM™ Daily Polarized include: A built-in component that allows you to latch the frame to your shirt, a three-point fit that holds lenses in optical alignment, which in turn takes stress off of pressure points and finally, UV protection that eliminates 100 percent of UVA, UVB and UVC rays.
Key features of the Moonlighter PRIZM™ Daily Polarized include: Patented hydrophilic unobtanium® nosepads that ensure a great, secure fit, providing durability and comfort throughout the day. This model also includes a mirco bag and eye case to store the frames anyway you please.
All in all, we can’t say enough about the style, clarity, and light-weight nature of both the Moonlighter PRIZM™ Daily Polarized ($220 CAN) and the
Latch™ Square PRIZM™ Daily Polarized ($230 CAN). These frames will fulfill all your needs on and off court. Highlighted in polished black for the Moonlighter PRIZM™ Daily Polarized and matte black for the Latch™ Square PRIZM™ Daily Polarized, the minimal aesthetics of each model provides just enough funk and performance to cater to a wide audience.
