    I believe the term you're looking for is hydrophobic.

    It's a scientific term that describes something as water repellent or repelled by water.

    hydro = water
    phobic = fear/dislike

    Oakley uses a hydrophobic coating on some lenses to help water, sweat, and oil run off or easily wipe away.

    hydrophilic is the opposite and will attract and hold, or is attracted to water.

    Hydrophilic means it is attracted to water, however that would not be relevant to the coating on oakley lenses
