The U.S. Military Special Forces and Law Enforcement agencies needed the ultimate, shatterproof eye gear. And so, 25 years ago, Wiley X was born. Company began by creating shatterproof, selenite, polycarbonate lenses. In fact, some models have been tested to withstand a 12-gauge shotgun blast from 10 yards away. Wiley X currently is a standard issue item with the FBI, DEA, Army Rangers, Navy SEAL Teams and Military Special Forces.
