oakley Gascan FlyingTigers Limited Edition

1) Gascan MatteSand with Dark Bronze lense
2) Gascan MatteBlack with Grey lense
oakley are honoring the Flying Tigers with this special edition of Oakley GASCAN® eyewear. Their shark-faced fighters are an icon of World War II, and their volunteer flying group became synonymous with independence, daring prowess and just plain guts.
The art on the stems looks like tore it off a fuselage that’s seen some action, and two unique versions are available. Both are matched with lenses that excel in bright sunlight. Flying Tigers GASCAN® comes complete with a commemorative pin, a custom packaging box for collectors and a custom printed MICROCLEAR™ bag for lens cleaning and eyewear storage.

The optics of GASCAN® are cut from the curve of a single lens shield then mounted in the frame to maintain the original, continuous contour. oakley utilized HIGH DEFINITION OPTICS® (HDO®) for unbeatable clarity that takes full advantage of XYZ OPTICS®, a patented technology that offers razor-sharp vision along the entire lens curve. The O MATTER® frame material is lightweight yet meets all ANSI Z87.1 standards for impact protection because we matched it with lenses of durable PLUTONITE®, a material that filters out 100% of all UV. As far as comfort, if you’ve never worn sunglasses with a true Three-Point Fit, you don’t know what you’re missing.

Photochromic Sunglasses

Photochromic lenses are lenses that darken on exposure to UV radiation. Once the UV is removed (for example by walking indoors), the lenses will gradually return to their clear state. Typically, photochromic lenses darken substantially in response to UV light in less than one minute, and then continue to darken very slightly over the next fifteen minutes. The lenses fade back to clear along a similar pattern. The lenses will begin to clear as soon as they are away from UV light, and will be noticeably lighter with in two minutes and mostly clear within five minutes. However, it normally takes more than fifteen minutes for the lenses to completely fade to their non-exposed state.

Photochromic lenses have millions of molecules of substances such as silver chloride or silver halide embedded in them. The molecules are transparent to visible light in the absence of UV light, which is normal for artificial lighting. But when exposed to UV rays, as in direct sunlight, the molecules undergo a chemical process that causes them to change shape. The new molecular structure absorbs portions of the visible light, causing the lenses to darken. The number of molecules that change shape varies with the intensity of the UV rays. When you go indoors and out of the UV light, a different chemical reaction takes place. The absence of the UV radiation causes the molecules to "snap back" to their original shape, resulting in the loss of their light absorbing properties. In both directions, the entire process happens very rapidly.
Because photochromic compounds fade back to their clear state by a thermal process, the higher the temperature, the less dark photochromic lenses will be. This thermal effect is called "temperature dependency" and prevents these devices from achieving true sunglass darkness in very hot weather. Conversely, photochromic lenses will get very dark in cold weather conditions, which makes them more suitable for snow skiers than beachgoers while outside. Once inside, away from the triggering UV light, the cold lenses take longer to regain their clear color than warm lenses.
Typically, fashion tints are applied in light pink, brown or gray, while sunglasses are usually gray or brown. A tint can be solid, when the entire lens is the same color, or gradient, which is a gradual fade from dark to light, usually fading from the top down.
Other colors can be applied to lenses for different purposes:
- Yellow, sometimes referred to as a "blue-blocker" because the color keeps blue light from entering the lens, is often the color of choice for target shooters because it decreases haze and makes objects appear sharper, with more contrast.
- Green, or its cousin G-15 (the Ray-Ban lens color), is sometimes used as a sunglass, though brown and gray are the most popular sun shades.
- Red is a uncomfortable to look through, though it does have applications for certain ocular pathologies. However, some people enjoy seeing the world through "rose-colored glasses."

Plastic Lense
Plastic photochromic lenses rely on organic photochromic molecules (for example oxazines and naphthopyrans) to achieve the reversible darkening effect. The reason these lenses darken in sunlight but not indoors under artificial light, is that room light does not contain the UV (short wavelength light) found in sunlight. With the photochromic material dispersed in the glass substrate, the degree of darkening depends on the thickness of glass, which poses problems with variable-thickness lenses in prescription glasses. With plastic lenses, the material is typically embedded into the surface layer of the plastic in an uniform thickness of up to 150 ┬Ám.
Glass Lense
The glass version of this type of lenses was first developed by Corning in the 1960s. The glass version of these lenses achieve their photochromic properties through the embedding of microcrystalline silver halides (usually silver chloride), or molecules in a glass substrate.

An important note about photochromic lenses:
Automobile windows also block UV so these lenses would darken less in a car. Lenses that darken in response to visible (rather than UV) light would avoid these issues, but they are not feasible for most applications. In order to respond to visible light, it is necessary to absorb it, thus the glass could not be made to be clear in its low-light state. Because they react to UV light and not to visible light, there are circumstances under which the darkening will not occur. A perfect example of this is in your car. Because the windshield blocks out most UV light, photochromic lenses will not darken. For this reason, most sunglasses with photochromic lenses also have a certain amount of tint already applied to them.

Medical Applications
Beyond the convenience of having lenses that can be worn both indoors and outdoors, some photochromic lenses also have medical applications. Corning's CPF family consists of glass photosensitive lenses with colors in the red family. They are used to enhance the vision of patients who have various ocular pathologies. Doctors who specialize in low vision are familiar with these lenses and can help patients determine which color will be the most helpful.
Another glass photochromic lens that is designed for use by individuals who have beginning-to-moderate light sensitivity because of various ocular conditions is Corning's GlareCutter. This is a darker, more cosmetically pleasing brownish-red that allows a precise level of blue light to "leak" through the lens, thus preserving a more natural color scene for the wearer than the more reddish CPF lenses.
