    Oakley vs Zeiss and others (non-prescription sunglasses)

    A customer has sent me this video of Oakley demonstrating the superiority of their (non-prescription) sunglass lenses.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hUDkCsOxtjg

    We don't carry Oakley cycling sunglasses but we carry both KOO and POC brands of cycling sunglasses with Zeiss lenses (non-prescription). How much of what Oakley said they are superior in in the video is true (especially for optical clarity) or are they matched by Zeiss lenses and other top or mid-range sunglass brands? How to explain/show other sunglass options to the customer who thinks Oakley are superior based on the above video?

    Interesting video. I highly doubt Oakley would trump Zeiss for clarity... They didn't show who the competitors are.

    Every quality optical lens, these days has a top result in clarity, depending on the material it is made of.

    Zeiss has been and still is, one of the oldest high quality lens producers in the world.

    Videos and advertising films can be rigged any way you want, as long as the results are convincing enough to impress a future buyer.

    According to the info thst comes in with my Oakley rx orders, most of the sv are Shamir Attitude done on a KBCo/Sunray lens, an Essilor subsidiary. Nothing special.
