Wiley X Eyewear lenses and frames are practically indestructible. ▼ Read more...
ANSI HIGH MASS IMPACT TEST ▲ Read less...
Wiley X ANSI tested frames and lenses must withstand the weight of a 1.1 lb. pointed projectile dropped from a height of 50" to ensure that your eyes are protected from unexpected impacts.
ANSI HIGH VELOCITY IMPACT
Frames and lenses must withstand the impact of a .25" diameter steel ball fired at 150 fps (ANSI) or .15 projectiles fired at 640-660 fps (spectacle VO Ballistic). Goggles must withstand .22 projectiles fired at a rate of 550-560 fps. This ensures our lenses and frames are practically indestructible.
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.
ASTM F803 STANDARD
Our Youth Force® Sports Protective Eyewear meets the stringent ASTM F803 standard. To pass the High Velocity Impact Resistance test, the eyewear must withstand projectiles sized from 40 mm to 65.1 mm fired at a rate of 90 mph.
The F803 standard tests the strength of the frame and the strength and clarity of the lenses. Youth Force® styles are tested to the plano and prescription eyewear classification.
Youth Force® styles pass ASTM F803 testing for Soccer, Basketball, Racquetball, Squash, Badminton, Paddle Ball, Tennis and Handball.
ANSI Z87.1 CLARITY STANDARD
To meet the strictest ANSI optical requirements we test all of our lenses for the accuracy of vision, diffusion of light, variations in luminous transmittance, and angle dependence on luminous transmittance. Ordinary lenses can distort and alter the true size of objects as well as bend light, causing focal objects to appear off-centered. Our SEL (Smart Edge Lens) Technology lenses are de-centered and tapered to ensure that they can meet ANSI optical clarity standards and provide a true spatial relationship of objects in the field of view.
FILTER 8™ POLARIZED LENSES
Glare off the water and other light colored surfaces can diminish vision at critical moments and cause eye fatigue. Wiley X FILTER 8™ polarized lenses combine eight layers of lens technology:
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
