If you're new to Wiley X CAPTIVATE™ lens technology, here's a brief overview of how they work and their features.
It all starts with the visible light spectrum. Within this spectrum, our human eye easily distinguishes the blues, greens, and reds as distinctive colors. However, where these colors overlap with one another, our eyes struggle to decipher and see clearly. CAPTIVATE™ lenses filter out this confusing light by separating the blues, greens, and reds to increase contrast and clarity. You'll get true color definition, better depth perception, and superior optical clarity when wearing Wiley X CAPTIVATE™ lenses.
With eight different lens options each designed to improve contrast in a specific environment, CAPTIVATE™ lenses always have the right tint for every condition. These lenses also protect against UV & harmful HEV blue light, an essential step in preventative eye care. As for coatings, CAPTIVATE™ lenses include scratch-resistance and an oleophobic treatment that repels water, dust, and oil. This makes cleaning a breeze, meaning more time seeing clearly while doing what you love.
Now that you're familiar with Wiley X CAPTIVATE™ lens technology, let's take a look at the lens itself.
The Wiley X CAPTIVATE™ Polarized Grey lens is a true-to-color option that performs well in bright light conditions. The grey base provides a dark tint, superior sun protection, and reduces eye-fatigue. A soothing visual experience, this lens is an excellent option for those who do not wish to alter their color perception with a dramatic tint but prefer a subtle boost of natural color.
A polarized filter comes on all Wiley X CAPTIVATE™ lenses and the Polarized Grey option is no different. Excelling in highly-reflective environments (bodies of water — we're looking at you), polarization reduces glare and the eye-strain that comes with it.
Overall, the CAPTIVATE™ Polarized Grey lens is an impressive option for sunny environments and providing a true-to-color experience. Take a closer look of the CAPTIVATE™ Polarized Grey lens on the Wiley X Omega below.

CAPTIVATE™ Polarized Grey lenses are designed to handle harsh, bright lighting conditions while providing superior visual comfort. The grey base equalizes the visible light spectrum, so colors enter more uniformly. You'll get a true-to-color experience with enhanced clarity. This natural vision excels in environments with highly reflective surfaces, such as bodies of water and open roads.
We recommend the CAPTIVATE™ Polarized Grey lens for deep-water fishing due to it's impressive performance against glare. This lens also reduces excess blue light, which is reflected off the surface of the water. You may also use this lens for day driving or general outdoor activities.
