Eyewear innovator Wiley X®, Inc. has added a new model to its growing Black Ops Collection — the new polarized WX Twisted. A member of the company’s Street Series™ family, this stylish and functional sunglass combines a stealthy look with the state-of-the-art protection that has made Wiley X a leading provider of protective eyewear to U.S. military, law enforcement, Secret Service and other tactical wearers. The addition of Wiley X’s polarized lenses ensures sharp, distraction-free vision in a variety of high-glare situations, whether patrolling near water, out on the highway or in the “urban jungle.”
Like all Black Ops Collection glasses, the WX Twisted features an understated, wraparound Matte Black frame that provides excellent coverage and fit for medium to large size faces. This virtually indestructible frame is outfitted with versatile, shatterproof Polarized Smoke Grey lenses utilizing Wiley X’s advanced Filter 8™ polarizing technology — for clear vision under a wide range of light conditions.
Another trademark of Wiley X and the Black Ops Collection is superior vision protection for every mission. The new Polarized Black Ops WX Twisted meets stringent ANSI-Z87.1 High Velocity and High Mass Impact Safety standards, protecting the wearer against a wide range of hazards. In fact, Wiley X is the only premium sunglass brand with this level of protection on every pair of glasses it makes.
Another important advantage of the Polarized Black Ops WX Twisted is Wiley X’s prescription ready design. Wearers who require corrective lenses can combine the occupational-grade protection of Wiley X with the customized prescription lenses they need to see clearly. This makes this new model an ideal, no-compromise solution for operatives who require corrective lenses on the job and off.
As a veteran-owned company, Wiley X, Inc. knows the importance of supporting America’s paralyzed veterans. So Wiley X continues its support of the Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) and has renewed sponsorship of three key programs for 2013 — the PVA National Trapshoot Circuit, the PVA National Bass Tour and the PVA Hand Cycling Racing Team. As part of its continuing sponsorship, Wiley X will be providing its high performance protective eyewear as featured prizes throughout the 2013 season of PVA shooting, fishing and
hand cycling events.
On the PVA National Trapshoot Circuit, disabled shooters and able-bodied shooters compete as equals in challenging trapshoot events. In its 17th year, this exciting circuit will include competitive shooting events around the country, where the new WX Valor Model #CHVAL06 — a member of Wiley X’s battle-proven Changeable Series — will be worn by staff, directors and volunteers. In addition, Wiley X protective eyewear will be included in prize packages for the winners. These advanced glasses combine crystal clear vision with protection that meets the new GL-PD 10-12 MCEP standard (which supersedes the MIL-PRF-31013 Ballistic Standard) for combat protective eyewear, as well as ANSI Z87.1 High Velocity and High Mass Impact Safety standards for occupational-grade protection. This Changeable Series model is ideal for shooting sports, because it comes as a three-lens package (Smoke Grey, Clear, Light Rust) that allows shooters to switch lenses based on light conditions.
Wiley X will again support the PVA National Bass Tour with its new Climate Control™ Series WX Echo Model #CCECH04, combining Gloss Black frames with Polarized Emerald Mirror lenses. These state-of-the-art fishing glasses will be provided to staff, directors and volunteers, as well as winning anglers. The PVA Tour consists of seven tournaments, each consisting of an Open/Team competition for angers wishing to compete from a boat and a Bank Competition for anglers who prefer to fish from shore. This WX Echo model combines advanced lenses based on Wiley X’s Filter 8™ polarizing technology with Wiley X’s patented soft, removable foam Facial Cavity™ seal that blocks out wind, dust and reflected light. This combination eliminates glare, reduces eye fatigue on the water and enhances the angler’s ability to spot fish, underwater structure and bottom contour. Wiley X’s ANSI-Z87.1 safety rating (standard in every pair of glasses it manufactures), protects fishermen from a wide range of dangers found on the water, from airborne debris and low-hanging braches to flying, hook-laden lures.
Wiley X will also play an important role in PVA’s hand cycling events, where these “road warriors” race wheel-to-wheel just inches from the pavement. Wiley X sunglasses help racers read the road surface, while providing serious protection against a wide range of hazards like airborne debris and kicked-up rocks.
“Wiley X is proud to be associated with PVA and honored to support its shooting, fishing and hand cycling competitions,” said Wiley X Co-Owner Myles Freeman, Jr. “These events celebrate America’s outdoor heritage and encourage men and women to excel — regardless of what physical challenges they may face. We applaud the efforts of these athletes and the many staff and volunteers around the country who make these events possible,” added Freeman.

Since its introduction, Wiley X®, Inc.’s Black Ops Collection has been known for its stealthy good looks and militarygrade vision protection. Now, with the addition of the new Polarized WX Censor to the collection, law enforcement, Secret Service and other tactical wearers can add the visual acuity and proven glare-cutting performance of Wiley X polarized lenses to the list.
The Wiley X Black Ops Collection now includes a new WX Censor Street Series™ model combining an understated Matte Black frame with Wiley X’s Polarized Smoke Grey lenses. Based on Wiley X’s advanced Filter 8™ polarizing technology, these versatile lenses provide clear vision in a wide range of light conditions and eliminate reflected glare in any environment — on the water, in urban settings or on the highway. As a result, wearers can count on clear, distraction-free vision any time of day, in any tactical situation.
Another thing wearers can count on is the advanced vision protection that has made Wiley X a leading provider of protective eyewear for military and law enforcement use around the world. The new Polarized Black Ops WX Censor meets the latest GL-PD 10-12 MCEP Standard (superseding the MIL-PRF-31013 Ballistic Standard) for combat protective eyewear.
This level of protection gives wearers the confidence to perform the toughest missions in the toughest environments; yet the Polarized Black Ops WX Censor is comfortable and stylish enough to wear every day. This isn?t surprising to those familiar with Wiley X, as it is the only premium sunglass brand whose entire line meets stringent ANSI-Z87.1 High Velocity and High Mass Impact Safety standards.
Like many models of Wiley X eyewear, the new Polarized Black Ops WX Censor is prescription ready. This makes this new model an ideal, no-compromise solution for wearers who require corrective lenses.

It’s estimated that 40,000 Americans receive eye injuries while participating in sports every year. This is a sobering statistic, especially considering that studies have shown that 90% of eye injuries could have been prevented simply by wearing protective eyewear. These are just some of the reasons why Wiley X, Inc. continues to support Sports Eye Safety Month, an annual effort each April to educate and inform the American public about the dangers of sports related eye injuries and the proper use of protective eyewear.
“The fact of the matter is, your eyes are at risk anytime you participate in sports — on the field, on the court or in the outdoors,” said Wiley X Co-Owner Myles Freeman, “Even sports not normally considered ‘dangerous’ — such as tennis, soccer or golf — can result in serious injury if protective eyewear isn’t worn. And outdoor activities like mountain biking, skateboarding and beach volleyball pose their own unique risks to eye health. The risks to one’s eyes may be varied, but the solution is the same — wear protective glasses to protect your precious gift of vision,” added Freeman.
Fortunately, sports enthusiasts today have a variety of premium quality eyewear options that deliver comfort, style and crystal clear vision along with serious vision protection. For example, Wiley X’s popular Climate Control™ series sunglasses feature a patented, removable soft foam Facial Cavity™ Seal that blocks out wind, dust and debris and provides a safe, climate-controlled environment for the eyes. The company’s sports-oriented Active Series features lightweight, comfortable frames with rubber nose and temple grips for a secure fit during high-action, high-sweat activities. And the majority of Wiley X eyewear styles are RX ready, providing sportsmen and women with an ideal, no-compromise solution on the field of play.
Whichever Wiley X style sports enthusiasts choose, they can play all-out knowing their eyes are protected from a wide range of hazards — from a blazing line-drive to a wicked forehand smash to a low-hanging branch. Wiley X sunglasses meet stringent ANSI-Z87.1 High Velocity and High Mass Impact Safety standards, providing wearers with OSHA-grade protection. Wiley X is the only premium sunglass brand with this level of protection in every pair of glasses it makes — a key reason why the company has been a leading provider of vision protection to U.S. military forces for more than 25 years.

It’s estimated by experts at Prevent Blindness America (www.preventblindness.org) that more than 700,000 Americans injure their eyes at work each year. And that nearly 1 million Americans have lost some degree of their sight due to an eye injury. If there is any good news in these “eye-opening” statistics, it’s that experts also believe that 90% of all workplace eye injuries could be prevented simply by wearing proper safety eyewear.
As a leading provider of protective eyewear products for the workplace, as well as military, government and recreational applications, Wiley X® Inc. is deeply invested in protecting the vision of America’s workers. The company’s concern for preventing critical eye injuries is a primary reason why Wiley X continues to support Workplace Eye Wellness Month, a nationwide information and education campaign conducted each March by nonprofit Prevent Blindness America.
“We need to get the message out that nine of out 10 workplace eye injuries could be prevented simply by wearing proper safety glasses,” said Wiley X Co-Owner Myles Freeman, Jr. “There are many reasons why workers don’t wear protective eyewear — and when you consider what’s at risk — none of them are good. At Wiley X, we’ve always believed that the key to protecting the vision of America’s workers is to provide comfortable, stylish eyewear that people want to wear — and educating workers about the importance of wearing protection not just some of the time, but all of the time,” added Freeman.
Wiley X offers a full line of Safety Series eyewear designed to protect against dangers in the factory, on the job site, in the workshop and even at home. Every pair of Wiley X sunglasses meets stringent ANSI Z87.1 High Velocity and High Mass Impact Safety standards, providing workers with OSHA-grade protection indoors and out. Wiley X is the only premium performance sunglass manufacturer with this level of protection on every product it makes.
The company’s Safety Series includes several popular Climate Control™ models, each featuring a removable, soft foam Facial Cavity™ Seal for added comfort and maximum protection against dust and debris. Other models in the Safety Series are designed for easy switching of lenses to provide optimal vision in every work environment. Most models in Wiley X’s Safety Series are Rx ready, making them an ideal choice for workers who require corrective lenses. This solution eliminates the need for workers to wear cumbersome protective glasses over their prescription eyewear, and increases the likelihood that proper protective eyewear is used consistently.

The initial collection introduced included 32 styles and phase II launch will include 8-10 Harley-Davidson exclusive frame/lens combinations available to motorcycle enthusiasts everywhere through the worldwide Harley-Davidson dealer network.

Wiley X and now Harley-Davidson® Performance Eyewear by Wiley X are the only “premium” performance sunglasses brands whose entire collections meet the stringent ANSI Z87.1-2003 High Velocity and High Mass Impact Safety standards. It is this advanced level of vision protection that has made Wiley X a leading provider of protective eyewear to law enforcement, Secret Service and U.S. military units around the world for more than 25 years. This also explains why Wiley X is a leading choice of top NASCAR drivers, tournament fishing champions, competitive shooters and other performance athletes who depend on clear, sharp vision to make a living.
This special Harley-Davidson® Performance Eyewear by Wiley X collection will provide riders with the same protection and performance that have made Wiley X a long-time favorite among serious motorcycle enthusiasts. Features like shatterproof frames and lenses, premium quality optics that eliminate reflected glare and harmful UVA/UVB rays, and Wiley X’s patented, removable soft Facial Cavity™ seal that keeps out wind, dust, debris and cold are key reasons Wiley X is so popular among riders. Superior fit, comfort and style are equally important, of course, and will also play a role in the new Harley-Davidson® Performance Eyewear by Wiley X.

Wiley X®, Inc. has renewed its partnership with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF) for 2013, again supporting the organization’s year-around efforts to raise awareness of this disease and lead the search for a cure.
Throughout the year, Wiley X will support the BCRF by donating $3 for each retail sale of its fashionable new WX Chelsea sunglass for women.

The WX Chelsea comes in two eye-catching versions. Model SSCHE01 matches a unique Liquid Plum frame with Smoke Grey lenses, while Model SSCHE04 combines a fashionable Iced Tea frame with glare-cutting and attractive Polarized Bronze lenses.
