Timeless Aviator Styling
The aviator style of sunglasses originated in the early 1930s with the U.S. Army Air Corp. The Corp commissioned Baush and Lomb to create a sunglass that would reduce the amount of light reaching a pilot’s eyes while flying at high altitudes. The result was aviator sunglasses with dark green lenses that absorbed ultraviolet light.
The appeal of aviator sunglasses lies in their timeless style. The design has remained largely unchanged since its inception and continues to be popular among both men and women. Aviators are versatile, working well with both casual and formal attire.
Aviators do an excellent job at protecting the eyes from harmful UV rays. The lenses are designed to absorb UV light, which can cause damage to the eyes over time.
Precise Optical Alignment with Three-Point Fit
A good fit is important for sunglasses because they need to stay in place while you are wearing them. If they do not fit well, they can slide down your nose or fall off entirely. This is not only annoying, but it can be dangerous if you are driving or doing any other activities where you need to be able to see clearly.
The Gauge 8 sunglasses have a three-point fit which means that they will stay in place no matter what you are doing. The nose pads are adjustable so you can get the perfect fit for your face. The temple arms have a grip that will keep them from slipping even when you are sweating.
The adjustable nose pads on the Gauge 8 sunglasses are important because they allow you to get a custom fit for your face. This is especially important if you have a wide or narrow nose bridge. being able to adjust the nose pads ensures that your sunglasses will stay in place and not slide down your nose.

Unobtainium Nose Pads and Temple Tips for a Secure Grip
Unobtainium is a synthetic material created by Oakley that is designed to increase grip when wet. The material is used in the nose pads and temple tips of the Gauge 8 sunglasses.
Unobtainium works by increasing friction when it comes into contact with moisture. This helps to keep the sunglasses in place, even when sweating or exposed to water.
The benefits of unobtainium include a secure grip, even in wet conditions, and comfort. The material is hypoallergenic and safe for use on sensitive skin.
Smudge Protection and Oleophobic Coating for Easy Cleaning
Oleophobic coating is a type of clear coating that is applied to the surface of materials to make them resistant to oil and other types of stains. This type of coating is often used on glass and metal surfaces.
The oleophobic coating works by creating a barrier between the surface and the oil or other substance. This barrier prevents the oil from being able to penetrate into the material, making it much easier to clean.
The advantage of an oleophobic coating is that it makes it much easier to keep surfaces clean. This can be especially helpful for sunglasses, as they are often exposed to fingerprints and other types of smudges.
Mono Shock Hinges for a Smooth Open and Close
A mono shock hinge is a type of hinge that is designed for smooth opening and closing. The hinge uses a single shock to open and close the sunglasses, which makes for a smoother action than other types of hinges.
The mono shock hinge works by using a single shock to open and close the sunglasses. This makes for a smoother action than other types of hinges. The mono shock helps to keep the sunglasses from slipping when you are wearing them.
The benefits of a mono shock hinge include smooth opening and closing, as well as increased stability when wearing the sunglasses. The mono shock helps to keep the sunglasses from slipping when you are wearing them.
100% Protection from UV and Harmful Blue Light
Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is a type of light radiation from the sun that breaks through the earth’s atmosphere and is most commonly known to cause skin cancer. It comes in three different types: UVA, UVB, and UVC.
UVC rays are the most dangerous to humans but luckily they’re almost entirely absorbed by the atmosphere (phew). That leaves UVA and UVB waves as the culprits that cause sun damage to our bodies if we don’t protect ourselves.
There’s something called blue light that’s only slightly longer and less powerful than UV rays—but it can do damage to our eyes and even impact sleep too. If you want to learn more about blue light, check out our video “Do Blue Light Glasses Work?”
All light comes in different wavelengths. So, for example, visible light that humans can see is between 400-700 nanometers in length. UVA rays are between 320-400 nanometers and UVBs are 290-320 nanometers—which humans can’t physically see but just because we can’t see the light rays doesn’t mean they’re not still causing damage because they are!
UVA radiation comprises about 95% of the UV radiation reaching the Earth’s surface. It is present with relatively equal intensity during all daylight hours throughout the year; hence it contributes significantly to photoaging of the skin as well as being linked to melanoma induction. Both direct DNA damage (leading to mutations) as well as indirect oxidative DNA damage have been implicated in these processes.
UVB radiation constitutes about 5% of sunlight but its effects on biologic systems are much greater than those of equivalent exposure to UVA rays because its wavelength allows it to penetrate only epidermis cells (the outermost skin layer). Penetration into dermal layers is prevented by absorption by melanin.
Because exposure of DNA directly leads to formation of pyrimidine dimers (the primary type of photolesion caused by ultraviolet B [UVB] radiation), this form of ultraviolet radiation has been linked more strongly with nonmelanoma skin cancers such as basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma.
Exposure patterns have changed over time owing partlyto increased leisure time spent outdoors but alsobecause people increasingly seek out sunny vacations at tropical latitudes during winter months when they would otherwise be shielded from intense sunlight by clothing or reduced daylight hours at northern latitudes.
Owing partlyto this change in behavior, an increase in incidence rates for both melanomaand nonmelanoma skin cancer has been reported during recent decades in populations throughout much ofthe world.
Despite considerable advances having been madein understanding how solar ultraviolet (UV) irradiation causes biologic effects leadingto photocarcinogenesis, many important questionsremain unanswered regarding mechanismsfor these processes at both molecularand cellular levels..
Wearing sunglasses is important year-round – not just when it’s sunny out! In fact, harmful blue-light exposure from devices like computers screens increases during colder months when we spend more time indoors under artificial lights. Here’s a look at some dangers associated with not wearing sunglasses:

Water Resistant & Sweat Proof Hydrophobic Coating
Hydrophobic coating is a treatment that is applied to the surface of objects to make them resistant to water. This can be done by using a variety of methods, including spraying, painting or dipping the object in a water-repellent solution. The hydrophobic coating repels water by creating a barrier between the object and the water.
Hydrophobic coatings work by creating a barrier between an object and water. This barrier prevents water from being able to wet the object, as the water droplets will simply bead up and roll off the surface.
The advantage of using hydrophobic coatings is that they can help to keep objects clean and dry for longer periods of time. This is because water will not be able to penetrate the surface of the object and cause it to become damp or wet. Hydrophobic coatings can help to protect objects from rusting or corroding as they will not be able to come into contact with water.
The Oakley Gauge 8 sunglasses have been treated with a hydrophobic coating in order to repel water and sweat. This coating creates a barrier on the surface of the lenses which prevents moisture from being able to penetrate through. As a result, your lenses will stay clean and clear for longer periods of time, even when exposed to rain or sweat.
