The History of WileyX


WileyX Head Office

WileyX by Protective Optics was born in 1986 to produce shatterproof eye gear for U.S. Military Special Forces and Law Enforcement agencies nationwide.

Shatterproof, selenite, polycarbonate lenses define the ballistic qualities of our many styles.

Some models have been tested to withstand a 12 gauge shotgun blast from 10 yards away helping protective optics gain not only national but international notoriety. Because they've produced such a reliable, trustworthy product over the years, currently a standard issue item with the FBI., D.E.A., Army Rangers, Navy Seal Teams and Military Special Forces in the U.S.

In 1990, the President and co-founder of WileyX by Protective Optics began to take the company in a different direction. He started to focus on the need for good, quality, shatterproof eye gear in various retail markets where “impact resistance” is most important.

WileyX has since taken a vigorous approach to promoting and advertising in these markets and has gained tremendous recognition supplying eyewear accessories to custom motorcycle shops, general sporting goods, sports shooting, golf, sunglass and extreme sports retailers across the globe.

The impact made in these industries alone has helped WileyX establish its name as an up and coming force in the retail world at large.
