Known globally for its range of eyewear designed for athletics, sports, and a generally active lifestyle, Oakley is considered the industry leader for sports eyewear. Founded with only $300 in 1975 by Mr. Jim Jannard, the company was named after his dog, an English Setter called Oakley.

Oakley is known for their outstanding technological designs that are incoporated into every product. With over 600 patents registered to the Oakley brand, much of this innovative techonology is developed by gathering input and feedback from practising athletes, as well as performing rigorous field testing, sometimes under extreme conditions. Their earliest patented technology, a non slip, tight gripping material nicknamed 'Unobtainium' is still used in many pieces of eyewear Oakley makes today, either as ear socks or nose grips.

What I like about Oakley eyewear is their stylish, active, and energetic designs. There is an overall sporty look to their eyewear, with a lightweight construction that is surprisingly more hardy and durable than it looks. Lifespan for a pair of Oakley eyewear is rather long, between 2 - 4 years. This kind of quality doesn't come cheap though, and Oakley is considered one of the more expensive brands of eyewear, with an average pair of Oakley frames costing between SGD $150 - $300, without the cost of lenses.

I used a pair of Oakley spectacles for nearly 4 years. Generally, I prefer those with a square, half frame, which helps to break up the overall look of my face and enhance my features.
