Sales - Questions

Where can I find a dealer or optician close to me?
On the bottom of the page under Quick Links you will find our “Dealer Locator”. On this page you will find a map and a list, where you can find a Wiley X dealer or optician near you.

Are all Wiley X sunglasses ANSI Z87.1 or EN.166 approved, and what is the difference?

Yes! All Wiley X’s eyewear is tested to meet or surpass the safety standards ANSI Z87.1 and EN.166.
ANSI Z87.1 is the American high velocity impact safety and optical standard, and EN.166 is the European version. If you want to know more about our tests and certifications, you can find more information about them under our Tech-section here.

It says Z87-2 in my frame. Is this the item number?
No, this is the American safety standard. You can see your eyewear’s item number on our website under the given product.

What size fits me?
You can find the size of all our eyewear on our website under the individual eyewear. Here, you will find both the eyewear’s measurements and the recommended head size for the style.

Can Wiley X lenses be scratched?
Yes, they can! All Wiley X lenses are made of a material called Selenite™ polycarbonate. The material is extremely durable but also flexible, which it needs to be for it to pass the powerful ballistic and safety tests  that we put our eyewear through. When a material is a bit flexible, it can also be scratched. To minimize this, we have treated our lenses with a T-shell™ coating and an extra strong hard coating, which adds protection to the lenses’ surface. In the end, this adds to the life expectancy of the eyewear. To prevent the most scratches, see our recommendations regarding product care  here.

Can I pay with PayPal?
No, unfortunately this is not possible.

I have found a model on the US-webshop, but it is not here on the EU-webshop, where can I order it?
It is only possible for you to order the eyewear you find at (or our .de and .dk sites, depending on you location). There will be models and styles that the US-webshop have, which we do not, and vice versa, and it is unfortunately not possible to get the eyewear styles/models from the US.

Can I order new nose pads?
It is only a few models to which it is possible to order new nose pads/nose pieces. However, it is possible to for instance WX DETECTION, WX ROGUE, and SABER ADVANCED.  

Which models can be used for Airsoft / Hardball?
All our eyewear is EN.166 tested and can, therefore, be used for Airsoft / Hardball. Many choose to use models from our Changeable series, which you can find here. You can also find the most commonly used styles here.

How do I know what model my eyewear is?
Inside one of the temples you can find the name of your eyewear, for instance WX ALFA. If you cannot find it, you can write to with images, then we might be able to help you identify your model.

I would like to order a specific item, but the order will not go through / be accepted, what do I do?
NB, if it is an item you have found on, you have unfortunately landed on the American webshop. If you live in Europe, you need to purchase from either,, or

Prescription lenses – Questions

Can I get Wiley X eyewear with prescription lenses?
Yes, almost all our eyewear can be made with prescription lenses, either directly in the lenses, or using a prescription insert. Check out all our styles, which can be made with prescription lenses here. If you want Wiley X eyewear with prescription lenses, contact a Wiley X authorized optician near you, you can find the one closest to you with our “Dealer Locator”, which you can find here.

Eyewear with prescription lenses can only be returned if the product is defect. Wiley X EMEA LLC strives to give a good customer service and we will do our best to help you. We also refer to our warranty section for more about our warranty policy on prescription lenses. You can find it her here.

Can I order lenses with prescription, without purchasing a frame?
We do not sell prescription lenses without a frame, not when purchasing extra lenses either, as we cannot vouch for our shatterproof guarantee if the lenses are not installed by us or by a Wiley X authorized 3rd party on our instruction.

Is the color of the prescription lenses the same as with the original style?
We strive to maintain the same lens color, as in the original style, but small deviations is, of course, unavoidable, since each prescription lens is individually tinted for each order.
