The Oakley Square Wire with Oakley EDGE prescription lenses delivers Cement sunglasses which are lightweight with cosmetically pleasing thin lenses.

The Oakley True Digital EDGE lenses enable you to purchase authentic Oakley Square Wire Cement prescription sunglasses with their new thinner EDGE lens technology.

Oakley realised that the majority of spectacle wearers do not use the most temporal edge of the lens and so started work on a new lens that would use this to their advantage in order to produce a lens that is both thinner and lighter.

The lenses appear no different from the front, so when worn just look like any regular pair of Oakley Square Wire sunglasses but on the rear of the EDGE lenses Oakley frost off around 5mm of the most temporal edge. This is genuinely amazing technology and when we have tried them out you can not see the frosting when wearing the sunglasses but you are left with a pair of sunglasses that feel incredibly lightweight and attractive.

We have found this technology is especially good for plus (+) customers and high minus (-). We would recommend looking at these for plus prescriptions above +1.00 and Minus prescriptions above -3.00. If you need advise as always please give us a call.

Oakley Square Wire is a classic timeless sunglass, ideal for wearing whilst driving or on holiday. Subtle hints of Oakley can be found on the sides with the Oakley ‘O’ logo’s.

The lightweight C-5 alloy is durable and incredible comfy to wear over long periods.

The Oakley Square Wire EDGE prescription sunglass can be purchased with a wide selection of Oakley True Digital lenses. These prescription lenses are specifically engineered for sunglass frames taking into account their curve and dimensions to deliver unbeatable vision, even when gazing temporally.

All the Oakley patented finishes are available including Oakley Iridium mirrored coatings and Polarised filters so if you wear glasses relax because you have just read correct, Oakley Prescription Sunglasses are available.

With this option your Oakley Square Wire in Cement with EDGE Prescription lenses will come direct from Oakley in the USA. Complete with an Oakley cleaning pouch and Hard Case.

PRESCRIPTION HELP

Understanding your prescription

Your prescription is split into three sections, Sphere, Cylinder and Axis. You will most commonly see this written as, Sph, Cyl and Axis.

There are simple rules for each part of the prescription

Sphere – Is always a number in 0.25 jumps (i.e. 0.25, 0.50, 0.75, 1.00, 1.25). This can either be written in minus or plus (- or +).

IMPORTANT: You must select the correct symbol when ordering (minus or plus, – or +) as selecting the wrong sign will create the completely wrong prescription required to correct your vision.

Cyl – Is always a number in 0.25 jumps (i.e. 0.25, 0.50, 0.75, 1.00, 1.25). This can either be written in minus or plus.

IMPORTANT: You must select the correct symbol when ordering (minus or plus, – or +) as selecting the wrong sign will create the completely wrong prescription required to correct your vision.

Axis – Is a number between 0 and 180, it can also be written to point five (0.5) of a degree. This simply happens if the optometrist can’t decide wether you prefer for example 79 or 80 so they simply write your axis as 79.5. In this case lets get your glasses as accurate as possible so please provide us with the 79.5.

The in instances when a prescription doesn’t have a value for the Cyl section please leave the Axis blank (or some opticians write this as 0.00), the Axis is indicating what degree the Cyl figure sits at so if there is no Cyl there is no Axis required.

Other symbols which are often seen written in a glasses  prescription

Infinity Symbol  – this is another way of writing zero (no prescription) so simply select 0.00 into the corresponding section for either sphere or cyl.

Plano – this is another way of writing zero (no prescription) so simply select 0.00 into the corresponding section for either sphere or cyl.

Varifocals – What is the Add (Addition) part of my prescription?

You typically start to get the add part to a prescription when you hit 40+ and it is a measure of the amount of magnification you require to read.

The add is a plus (+) power which identifies how much extra addition (magnification) a glasses wearer requires (on top of their distance prescription) in order to read comfortably at close up distances, such as reading.

NOTE: Sometimes an optician will write your prescription for reading as a full prescription rather than simply supplying your reading add.

Example:

Distance

Right: -2.50 / -0.50 x 180

Left: -2.00 / -0.75 x 175

Near

Right: -1.00 / -0.50 x 180

Left: -0.50 / -0.75 x 175

 

Reading Add = +1.50

 

In this case to get your reading add take your distance Prescription Sphere  off your reading Shere. The difference between the two figures is your reading add used for Varifocals.

PUPIL DISTANCE

Let our Dispensing Optician Measure your Pupil Distance accurately

For the Pupil Distance options on the ordering pages select ‘Let Extreme eyewear measure your PD’ and we’ll post you our specially designed glasses.

(Note: On some projects the PD option will state ‘send ruler’ this option will still get you the new PD Measuring Glasses)

All you have to do is take a simple photo of you wearing our glasses and emailing your photo to us.

Our Dispensing Optician will then accurately take your mono pupil distances. Our PD glasses allows our dispensing opticians to gain all the details they need to set up single vision and varifocal sunglasses / eyewear accurately.

Let us supply you with perfect vision.

This service is free for all prescription eyewear orders.

 

 


What is your PD?

Your Pupil Distance is the measurement between the centre of your right and left pupils in mm.

How can you find out your Pupil Distance?

  1. You maybe lucky enough to have been given this by your optician
  2. You can select to have our Pupil Distance measuring glasses posted to you. These will leave us on the same day you place an order 1st class post.

Why have we gone to the trouble of supplying PD Glasses?

Prescription glasses and sunglasses always work better when the centre of the optical lens is over your pupil. Not having this set up correctly can cause head aches and limit how well the glasses will work.

Varifocal Wearers

If you don’t know your Mono Pupil Distances (this is two separate measurements for your right and left pupils) we strongly advise you select to have our PD Glasses posted to you. Varifocals with out mono pupil distances will not work correctly.

If you know your Mono Pupil Distances during the checkout there is a comment box, please write your right and left mono pupil distances in this comment box.

Examples

A pupil distance of 65 may have mono pupil distances of

Right 33

Left 32

Your total PD is still the same (65) But by using the separate mono pupil distances the centre of the varifocals will be positioned over your pupils making sure the clear corridor leading to your reading is in the correct position.

How do I receive PD Measuring Glasses?

In the PD options select ‘Let Extreme eyewear measure your PD’. The Digital ruler will be posted out on the same day as your order is placed to your shipping address supplied. (If your order comes in after 4.00pm the ruler will leave us the next day)

Abroad Orders

We will post the PD Measuring Glasses abroad but please allow a little more time to complete your order. The PD measuring glasses may take up to a week to get to abroad addresses.
