    Great read. But, ummm, aren't Oakley Splice goggles? Do pilots wear goggles? The magazine article said they took 65 of the most popular brands/models of sunglasses to test to ANSI standards by a certified lab. I haven't ever seen anyone just kickin it at the beach or around town in a pair of goggles.... Jus sayin.

    Thanks Batwolf, when I searched the products at O.com, all I got were goggles.

    It's interesting to see how much the test results varied for left and right side lenses. I wonder what's causing the variance.

    It could be anything. Without publishing their testing method these results aren't very useful except as a comparative chart between brands.

    It might be from setting papillary distance for one pair or one subject and using it across the board (ie, not being in the optical center of the lens). It could be sensor variance, not calibrating them equally for instance. It could be incident light is off center. It could be misalignment in the target.

    Their sample size was also one pair of glasses. They could have easily gotten a pair with an optical aberration or imperfection.
