What to Look for in Wiley X Safety Glasses

Since 1987, Wiley X has been crafting safety-rated eyewear for military, law enforcement, and civilians alike. Every frame is made to the strictest safety standards, so you can feel confident with any style you choose from their collection. For today's lineup of the best Wiley X safety glasses and sunglasses, our opticians required the following criteria:


All Wiley X safety sunglasses and eyeglasses are ANSI-approved to meet high-impact and high-velocity safety standards. They feature ANSI Z87.1-certification, which is the most common safety rating for spectacles. To earn this certification, spectacle frames and lenses must withstand the impact of a 0.25" diameter steel ball traveling at 150fps.

For prescription, you'll often see the safety rating as ANSI Z87-2, which is the Rx equivalent of ANSI Z87.1. Both safety ratings undergo the same frame and lens impact testing.

Impact-Resistant Materials

To withstand potential impacts, Wiley X uses innovative materials to safeguard your vision and create a comfortable fit. Triloid™ nylon is the frame material of choice for its lightweight feel but tough and durable wear. The lenses are made of shatterproof Selenite™, which creates a distortion-free visual experience with superior impact-resistance. This polycarbonate lens material also features a T-Shell™ coating to resist scratching and increase lens longevity.

Peripheral Protection

Protect yourself from peripheral hazards with frame designs that give you coverage from every angle. Today's frames all feature peripheral protection, in one of two forms. Whether it's an 8-base wrap that creates a contoured fit, or optional side shields that lock in for extra coverage, both act as a physical barrier from peripheral threats.


Wiley X understands the importance of clear vision for achieving a job well done. Every frame in our lineup of the best Wiley X safety glasses and sunglasses are available with authentic Wiley X prescription lenses online at sportrx.com.

Best Wiley X Safety Glasses & Sunglasses

Let's check out the frames!

WX Omega

Kicking off our lineup, we have the ultra-versatile Wiley X Omega. In addition to ANSI Z87-2-certification, these Wiley X safety sunglasses also boast a military ballistic rating. Whether you're preparing for a deployment, or simply appreciate the clean design and level of protection they provide, the WX Omega is a fool-proof choice for safety eyewear. It features 180-wrap-around coverage thanks to its 8-base design, and thick temples further enhance peripheral protection. Rubber nose pads keep your frame securely in place and deliver all-day comfort even if you're putting in overtime.

As for the generously sized lenses, the WX Omega promises unobstructed vision from every angle. Select from contrast-enhancing Wiley X CAPTIVATE™ lens colors, or choose non-polarized lenses depending on your vision needs.

As a member of the Climate Control Series, these Wiley X safety sunglasses feature a Facial Cavity™ Seal that blocks dirt, dust, and debris.

As we step away from sunglasses and introduce Wiley X safety eyeglasses, it's important to note that all of today's styles are available with both tinted and clear prescription lenses. Your prescription lenses will also be safety-rated, and feature ANSI markings should your employer require proof.

First up in our picks for clear Wiley X safety glasses, we have the WX Serenity. This stylish women's frame is part of the Wiley X WorkSight® Collection, which features removable side shields in every design. Optional side shields add peripheral protection when you need it most and can be easily removed for casual wear. Flattering square lenses have a subtle uplift to complement a variety of face shapes and create a generous field of vision. Their 4-base design also makes the WX Serenity extremely Rx-friendly, so it can take on tricky prescription needs with ease and effortless style.

Our second WorkSight® frame is the timeless Wiley X Profile.

But the WX Profile is just as tough as the best of Wiley X ANSI eyewear. It features the same impact-resistant materials like Triloid™ nylon and shatterproof Selenite™ lenses, but in a design that promises great style even when on the clock. Choose from clear or tinted options to get a custom visual experience tailor-made to your Rx needs and your job's duties.

The frame itself has a contemporary design with clean lines and thoughtful details. Square lenses hold a range of prescriptions, and a gently curved browline flatters a variety of face shapes. As for sizing, the Wiley X Epic has an SFW of 140, which is a perfect fit on larger heads. If you need big safety glasses, but don't love the oversized look, the WX Epic is the ideal everyday frame for work and weekends.
