Wiley X & Specs
Wiley X is a patriotic brand that was founded by family for those that serve and protect. This is a family owned brand through and through. Wiley X does not have employees. They are brothers, uncles, family friends – this company is FAMILY. The company was founded by U.S. Veteran Myles Freeman Sr. that served in the Army in the 60’s. He wanted to create an eyewear brand that could withstand the intense situations he and his fellow military personal endured. Protection for those protecting was one of the most important aspects of the company. Still is today! This brand was literally born on the battlefield and has an amazing story. It was created in the basement of a real estate building where the founder created this innovative brand. The sons joined and were ready to create a brand, create a following, create a need. Gear to be proud of is the goal.
Wiley X provides eyewear protection for a ton of reasons. They create eyewear for military troops protecting and serving. First responders can find great value in Wiley X. Firefighters, Policemen, EMT, health care provides can all benefit in their own ways by wearing this brand.

Need safety but need prescription? No problem! Wiley X and Specs can make that happen! There are a ton of eye injuries that happen every day and we want to help decrease the chances. Wiley X is one of the only premium sunglass manufacturers that exceeds the occupational standards when it comes to eyewear. Majority of their eyewear is safety stamped with the ANSI rating. Those that are not stamped hold up to the best standards possible. Our Eyewear Specialists will help you along the way. Wiley X frames and lenses are capable of meticulously crafted precision prescription lenses that are digitally mapped and tested to rigorously high standards. Every Wiley X lens is etched and certified that guarantees each one has the high quality in prescription lenses that are available. To keep the ANSI standards, Wiley X can process the lenses by doing what is called Digital Edge Thinning to create prescription lenses for their high wrapped frames. This technology is created to help enhance vision for those that have a higher prescription and desire a high wrap pair of sunglasses. This creates lighter and thinner lenses for the customer while allowing the appearance and integrity to not be compromised.
Things happen and Wiley X knows that. That is why they provide a great warranty system with all eyewear. For non-Rx eyewear they provide a limited lifetime warranty that covers any and all manufacturing defects in material and workmanship. The Youth Force and Workmanship line has a warranty against defects in materials or workmanship for maximum period of two years. Wiley X also has photochromic light adjusting lenses that have a warranty against defects in materials or workmanship for a maximum period of 18 months. Prescription lenses that have the scratch coating on them have a one-time scratch redo for lenses that have frontal surface scratches due to normal wear for one year from the date of purchase. If the prescription eyewear has anti-reflective treatment on it that increases to a two-year scratch redo for lenses. Contact us to help you with your warranty!
