In the past, we’ve written about the importance of wearing sunglasses often especially when it comes to outdoor sports. Investing in a good pair of sunglasses is probably the best way to protect your eyes and prevent risk of vision loss or eye cancer. Not to mention, wearing the right sunglasses helps combat migraines and saves you from a number of sun-related eye problems. That’s why high-performance brands like Oakley always make it a point to enhance their eyewear essentials.

The brand’s newest sun and optical lifestyle glasses collection, the Ahyris, is made with a single design element that redefines eyewear construction and promotes unique mechanical function. The name Ahy-Ris finds its source in the collection’s inspiration: the iris of the eye, the window of the soul. The collection is known for its singular design element that delivers a distinct mechanical function for connecting a center frame and temples together for a distinct look.



Coldfuse uses a single element design that binds 24 components together—creating a progressive and aesthetic eyewear.  It’s made to be anything but ordinary and is known to bring out confidence and self-expression.
