Only Wiley X Climate Control Series styles with patented removable Facial Cavity™ Seals block out peripheral light to boost polarization. Eliminating peripheral light actually makes polarized lenses perform even better — less glare, better clarity, more fish. Just ask top Bass Pro Edwin Evers.

Filter 8™ Polarized Lenses
Glare off the water and other light colored surfaces can diminish vision at critical moments and cause eye fatigue.
- Two Slick™ hydrophobic coatings
- Two Selenite™ polycarbonate lenses
- Two T-Shell™ scratch-resistant layers
- One Violet 4™ anti-reflective coating
- Filter 8™ polarized film layer that creates 100% polarization with 100% UV protection
Wiley X FILTER 8™ POLARIZED LENSES combine eight layers of lens technology:
The mark of high performance certification
All Wiley X styles are ANSI rated because we test and mark all of our frames, temples and lenses with the appropriate ANSI certification.
ANSI Certification Marks
|WX||Precedes all ANSI rating marks. Wiley X is the manufacturer.|
|Z87||The sunglass frame and temples or goggle frame passes the ANSI high velocity and high impact test.|
|-2||The frames can be fitted with a prescription lens, which is the case with almost all Willey X Sunglasses.|
|+||The sunglass frame and temples or goggle frame passes the ANSI high velocity and high impact test (2010 standard).|
|+||The lens meets or exceeds the ANSI High Velocity Impact standard.|
|S||The lens is a filter or shaded lens (not clear).|
|V||The lens is variable-tint photochromic (light adjusting).|
ANSI High Mass Impact Test
Wiley X frames and lenses must withstand the weight of a 1.1 lb. pointed projectile dropped from a height of 50". That pretty much ensures they'll stand up to anything your customers will encounter.
Patented Facial Cavity™ Seals
Fine dust and pollen, as well as wind, can cause long-term eye irritation, such as Dry Eye Syndrome. Peripheral light can also diminish optical clarity.
Wiley X patented removable soft foam FACIAL CAVITY™ SEALS block out even the finest irritants and peripheral light, protecting the eyes and allowing polarized lenses to perform at peak levels.
