Wiley X Sunglasses

"As a global leader on the forefront of optical technology, Wiley X exists because it recognizes that today's lifestyles pose constant threats to eye health." - Wiley X

Wiley X was born 27 years ago when the U.S Military and Law Enforcement Agencies required the ultimate eyewear. For this purpose, sunglasses and goggles featuring sleek designs, superior technology and shatterproof lenses were created and these have become the standard issue eye gear for the likes of the FBI, Army Rangers, Navy SEAL Teams and Army Special Forces to name but a few.

To reach this standard, Wiley X eyewear is put through the most rigorous testing in order to reach EN.166 and ANSI Z87.1-2003 rating and is the only premium performance sunglass line that is entirely ANSI safety rated. This means that in 1987 when Wiley X brought their sunglasses to the general public, military grade, protective eyewear was available to hunters, anglers and motorcyclists as well as the nation's elite.
