Wiley X Prescription Sunglasses

Wiley X was founded in 1986 in the USA. The main focus was development and production of functional and ultimate shatterproof eyewear to the U.S. Military Special Forces and Law Enforcement agencies. Wiley X are now recognised as global leaders in protective sports sunglasses. Equally popular with motorcyclists and skydivers, skiers and anglers, the Wiley X gospel is spreading every year.

Wiley X prescription polycarbonate lenses exceed ANSI Z87.1 safety standards, and glazed by Shamir using their Attitude lenses. The foam seal on the Wiley X Climate Cotrol Series of sunglasses eliminates excessive air movement around the eyes, and therefore keeps out dust, pollen, insects, etc, and also reduces dry eye syndrome.

Delivery is normally 2-3 weeks, as all Wiley X prescription sunglasses are glazed in conjunction with Shamir's specialist wraparound lab in Portugal.

  • Prescription Technology: Shamir

    Wiley X prescription sunglasses now incorporate Shamir technology, ensuring Wiley X are now leading the way in prescription sports eyewear. This collaboration offers you the following technical benefits:
  • Shamir Attitude® lenses are exclusively designed to provide uncompromised visual acuity in fashion-forward wrap around frames.  
  • Using proprietary EyePoint Technology®, Shamir lens engineers employ surface asphericity to compensate for off-center unwanted astigmatism characteristic of grinding an Rx in a Base 8 lens.
  • Shamir Attitude® lenses provide the cosmetic benefits of a Base 8 with optical performance of Base 3 and 5.
  • Shamir Attitude® lenses include EyePoint Technology™, which is a radical departure from conventional eyeglass lens analysis tools. Ensuring an accurate design and analysis, it enables the development and manufacturing of sophisticated, tailor-made lenses.

The key element behind Shamir's EyePoint Technology is a dedicated ray-tracing program written by Shamir scientists. Combining lens surface topography data with a highly advanced mathematical algorithm. This sophisticated technology calculates the optical performance of thousands of locations covering the progressive lens surface, taking into account the following parameters:

  • lens index refraction
  • lens prescription
  • lens center thickness
  • distance from the eye to the back vertex of the lens 
  • distance from the lens to the object 
  • object's angular position in the eye's field of vision 
  • pantoscopic tilt of the frame 
  • pupil distance 
  • thickness reduction prism and more
