With the Tokyo Olympics looming just over the summer horizon, lifestyle brand Oakley has just announced how they're going to help their representatives "go for the gold", and yes, they do mean it literally. 

Apparently, if you manage to catch a glimpse of Team Oakley finalists at the Olympics, you just might notice the sun's golden rays reflecting off their equally-golden Kato Prizm 24K Gold lenses, which the company touts are purpose-built to enhance sporting performance and "provide the wearer with the confidence to be at their best".

Of course, those aren't just "fluffy" marketing words - these shiny new lenses actually have a whole range of features to enhance the wearer's comfort, visual clarity and even their field of view, among numerous other things.

However, the one feature that Oakley seems to be particularly proud of is their new PhysioMorphic Geometry, which basically allows this frameless pair of lenses to mimic the properties of an actual frame. According to the company, it accomplishes this by providing "extended wrap and rigidity in key areas", which when coupled with the innovative tilt function and the multiple nose pads, provides an experience that's not just comfortable, but also fits seamlessly with natural facial contours. 

Naturally, the other thing that Oakley has to say is that you'll be able to get your hands on a pair of these shiny lenses as well. Regarding pricing and availability, the Oakley Kato Prizm 24K Gold currently retails at S$486, and can be purchased from the Oakley boutique at Marina Bay Sands or any Universal Optical store across Singapore.
