Wiley X Australia now offer a Prescription Lens service. We offer Digital lenses in Single Vision and Progressive, prepared and fitted at Wiley X's partner lab in the USA.
Prescription Lens Orders currently take around 2-3 weeks to deliver.
Alternatively, you can contact your preferred Optical Store to order your Wiley X prescription glasses.
All Wiley X models are prescription compatible and can be fitted with single vision prescription lenses. Progressive prescription lenses can be accommodated in most frames depending on the prescription, except for RX inserts. Suitable frames are marked with the RX Ready icon (Prescription Ready) and noted in the product description.
Wiley X uses Polycarbonate lenses only for our prescription orders. Polycarbonate lenses offer the best and most consistent protection impact protection.
Our prescription lenses are 100% impact resistant lenses and meet the ANSI 87.1 safety standard for impact protection. They will protect your eyes from debris, rocks and other stuff from hitting your eyes. Australian certified safety prescription glasses will be available soon.
We recommend Wiley X frames be filled with polycarbonate lenses. Other materials such as CR-39 offer less impact protection. Although some uncoated high index materials will perform almost as well as polycarbonate, when they are coated they may shatter under the same impact.
RX carriers can be fitted with prescription lenses to wear with the following WX models: VAPOR, ROGUE, SABER Advanced, PT-1, and SPEAR goggle.
RX carriers can be fitted with Single Vision lenses only. RX carriers are not suitable for Progressive lenses (or multi-focal lenses), as there is not enough depth in the lens to accommodate a progressive prescription.
We recommend Anti-fog coating with all RX carrier prescriptions as they are being worn behind the primary lens.
Prescription lenses for RX inserts should be made with a Polycarbonate lens only. Materials such as CR-39 or similar are not suitable as they offer less impact protection.
Digital Edge thinning
Most Wiley X frames are suitable for our standard Digital lenses for prescriptions between -4.00 to +4.00 (Power range = SPH + CYL).
For prescriptions outside this range, we offer a DigiforceTM Edge Thinning lens to reduce the edge thickness of the lens.
Depending on the prescription and the preferred frame, we may be able accommodate prescriptions in a range of -7.00 to +5.00 using a DigiforceTM Edge Thinning lens.
Please contact us for more information on your specific prescription requirements.
Polarised & tinted options
Prescription Lenses can be prepared in polarised or non-polarised lenses. We offer clear or tinted lenses in a range of colours.
Anti-fog coating or Anti-reflective coating can be added if required, or we can add a mirror coating if preferred. Coatings are not available in lenses with Digital Edge Thinning.

RX Prescription: An RX prescription is what an Optometrist or Ophthalmologist provides to correct your vision by using eyewear with corrective lenses. Only an RX prescription written for glasses will work. An RX prescription for Contact Lenses is not an option. Wiley X recommends that our customers get an eye examination every two years, or more frequently if there are changes in your vision.
PD: Pupillary distance (PD) is the distance between your pupils. This is needed for the Prescription Lab to know where to place the optical centre on each lens in every prescription eyewear.
