Oakley’s new roots in Hebden Bridge

Posted on 27th May 2016 in News

At Valli Opticians we love having something to shout about, and today is no exception. We are delighted to announce that Valli Opticians are about to become proud stockists of Oakley sunglasses and spectacle frames.

Maybe you need something to help reduce glare on a sunny day, or to help the handicap on the golf course, or even just a fab pair of shades to look cool by the pool?

If cycling is your thing, how about the fantastic new Jawbreaker, featuring the most advanced version of Oakley Switchlock™ Technology. This is a patented hassle-free interchangeable lens system. Interchangeable lenses allow you to adapt your vision to the environment and changing light conditions. The adjustable stem design enables the sides to adjust to three different lengths, thus maintaining a comfortable and secure grip without interfering with your cycling helmet.

All our Oakley sunglasses will be available with the trademark Oakley technology including Prizm™ lenses (click here).  These lenses provide unprecedented control of light transmission, resulting in colours precisely tuned to maximize contrast and enhance visibility. Oakley lenses are famous for their High Definition Optics® (HDO®) for fantastic visual fidelity, and impact resistance. For those who want a perfect fit, Oakley sunglasses won’t budge an inch thanks to their Unobtainium® earsocks and nosepads which increase their grip when you sweat, keeping your sunnies exactly where they should be.

Oakley lenses are created from their patented Plutonite® lens material to provide unparalleled performance and unbeatable clarity.  Thanks to Oakley’s unique manufacturing process, these lenses offer the very best in eye protection. In fact Oakley are absolutely hell-bent on making sure their lenses can cope with everything life throws at them. Like safety spec lenses, Oakley lenses are tested for high velocity impact protection (click here). These test involve firing a quarter-inch steel ball bearing at 102 mph at their lenses. Plutonite stands up to this test where lesser lenses fail miserably. So if in your chosen sport projectiles are unavoidable, at least you know you’re eyes are shielded by a very formidable barrier.

If the retro look floats your boat we have the classic Frogskin. An 80s icon from a time when Ronald Reagan was in the White House, The Terminator was in the box office and Run DMC was in the charts. An Oakley stalwart, the Frogskin is available in a huge selection of lens and colour options.

Oakley sunglasses are available with or without prescription, or with a prescription insert, so we can help you make the most of the sunshine wherever your travels take you.

For those of you who like classic Oakley styling even when the sun goes down, we have a huge selection of Oakley Ophthalmic frames to choose from. We particularly like the Oakley Crosslink, with its crossover design the Crosslink allows you go from work to play in an instant. The interchangeable, Unobtainium® sides provide a comfortable fit, worthy of your favorite everyday prescription glasses while allowing for two different looks.

For those who like to keep the weight down the Pitchman Carbon provides super strength and durability in a lightweight package. The Pitchman’s unique temples link Hollowpoint™ titanium hinges to comfortably lightweight O Matter™ frames in a sleek rectangular lens shape. The innovative design provides carbon fiber temples molded over Unobtainium® earsocks for a non slip grip.
