From ANSI, to ASTM, to ballistic, to styles for men, women, and children alike, there's a type of safety glasses that suits your needs. Despite this, there are plenty of casual styles! The days of uncool safety glasses are long behind you—with Wiley X safety glasses, you can get safety frames that look good and protect you.
Wiley X Buyer's Guide
Eyeglass Tyler covers everything you need to buy Wiley X eyewear. Watch below or keep reading to learn more.
First, let's talk frames. Wiley X has recently been expanding their selection to include all types of eyewear. They now offer sunglasses, goggles, eyeglasses, and even tactical eyewear, both with casual styles and some that are more like typical safety glasses. Since every frame is safety-certified, it's a matter of picking the design that appeals to you.
With that in mind, be sure to check which safety ratings you need, especially if you're shopping safety glasses for work. Different ratings protect against different things, and which one you need depends on what you use your glasses for. If you're simply looking for safety glasses to wear for odd jobs around home, give us a call! We can help you find out which type would suit you best.
You also want to make sure you get appropriate coverage, another thing that depends on what you use your safety glasses for. Types of coverage found in Wiley X glasses and sunglasses include side shields, face foam, or a wrapped shape. You want to make sure your glasses fit well too, since you can't have anything slipping in through the gaps. That's another thing we can help with if you contact us.
Now, let's talk lenses. First things first, you have all the options! Whether you're after clear lenses for indoors, sun lenses for outdoors, or Transitions for both, they're all available to you, even in prescription. But again, if you're looking for Wiley X glasses for your job, make sure to know what's allowed. For example, some workplaces require your lenses to be completely clear at all times indoors, which means you can't get Transitions.
If you don't want to (or can't) be tied to one type of lenses, you can also look at interchangeability. Some Wiley X frames like the Valor offer interchangeable lenses to let you swap to whichever one you need the most, and you can always have the perfect lens for any condition.
Wiley X CAPTIVATE™ is a proprietary lens technology that boosts colors and contrast to help you spot details you might have missed before. The best part? These lenses are still very dark and protective, exactly what you need for working in bright, harsh sunlight. You can also get CAPTIVATE™ lenses in prescription!
If you get custom prescription lenses for your safety glasses, they'll have a marking on the lens that indicates they're safety-certified. Though the lens marking won't necessarily say ANSI on it, it still complies with the appropriate safety standards. The details of the lens markings vary depending on what type of lens you get, so check out our Safety Glasses Buyer's Guide to learn the specifics.
