Wiley X frames, which feature streamlined, face-hugging styles and the latest in eyewear technology, make excellent sunglasses for a whole range of outdoor activities, and fishing is certainly one of them. Yet Wiley X offers so many styles…so which one to choose for a day spent at the dock or on a boat?
Rx-Safety is here to help with a few suggestions. We’ve narrowed down the large Wiley X selection to eight popular models (all with polarized lenses) that we feel are perfectly suited to fishing. Before we get to the frames, let’s examine why polarization is ideal for the sport or for any water activity.
Sunlight bounces off of surfaces and reflects in multiple directions. The natural movement of water creates many surfaces for the sun to strike, hence the blinding glare we experience when sunlight hits water. Standard sunglass lenses are designed to reduce light waves that strike the eyes both horizontally and vertically, but they do not completely block any of this light. Polarized lenses are treated with a coating that absorbs the horizontal light but allows vertical rays to pass through. Because of this, the glare caused by sunlight is effectively eliminated.
Now, as to the frames, we recommend the following, all of which exceed ANSI Z87.1-2003 high velocity safety standards to protect your eyes against miscast hooks or any other fishing-related dangers:

I’m a bass fisherman looking for the best type lenses for inshore fishing. Which model and lenses type would you suggest
I would recommend any model really with a polarized lens. I like the polarized brown color lenses better than gray because of the contrast enhancement features of the brown lens. My two favorite lenses are below
I like the matte black with the captivate polarized green mirror
I have a pair of Wiley X glasses now for 2 years but are not successful on using them. The problem I have is not the frames but the persciption. they were ordered from my Dr. Office . dr Brandt in Lock Haven ,Pa. I got these glasses primarely for fishing. The numbers on the frame is 1502z and 115. They were sent back after a discussion with a tech. When i received them back. I did not notice much of a change if any. I found i could not see clearly at a distance nor very goog up close primarely for tying on a fly. Is there anyway you can help me. i really like the frames.. Charlie Mogish
I would suggest try taking them somewhere else to have the lenses read or perhaps getting your eyes reexamined. Sometimes if it is even a wraparound frame it can distort your vision.
