Wiley X was founded in 1986 in the USA. The main focus of the company was development and production of functional and ultimate shatterproof eyewear to the U.S. Military Special Forces and Law Enforcement agencies. They 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 Control 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.
