ANSI Z87.1 Clarity Standard

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

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

LA™ LIGHT ADJUSTING LENSES

Changing light conditions without swapping or removing sunglasses can make hazardous situations in the field of vision easy to miss.

Wiley X LA™ LIGHT ADJUSTING LENSES automatically adjust lens tint with changing UV light conditions.
