Parades, fireworks and barbecues are just some the ways Americans celebrate Independence Day, but it has a much deeper meaning than that, protective eyewear innovator Wiley X, Inc. reminds us.
“This is a unique American Holiday and we are a business that appreciates the opportunities and freedoms our great nation offers,” said Wiley X Co-Owner Myles Freeman, Jr. “The Fourth of July is when all Americans collectively celebrate our nation’s birthday. But we’re the ones who get to receive the gift — the gift of independence. We should never lose sight of the fact that our nation’s fighting men and women have taken on the responsibility of protecting that gift for all of us. Appreciating not only our nation’s freedoms, but also those who make them possible, should be part of every Independence Day celebration,” added Freeman.
Wiley X has a long and rich tradition of providing state-of-the-art vision protection to the U.S. military, law enforcement and other tactical wearers around the world. The technology developed for these everyday heroes is utilized to protect the eyes of everyday Americans as well, whether it’s on the job, on the road or out in the great outdoors.
All Wiley X sunglass models meet stringent ANSI Z87.1 High Velocity and High Mass Impact Safety standards, as well EN.166 Standards, providing occupational grade protection for every activity. Wiley X is the only premium sunglass brand with this level of vision protection in every pair of glasses it makes, and it can be found on many new models the company has introduced for 2014. These include the new Climate Control™ WX Arrow and WX Knife, Active Series WX Rebel, Street Series WX Moxy and Changeable Series WX Vapor, all providing comfort, style and advanced protection that goes far beyond the harmful rays of the sun.
In addition, almost all Wiley X styles are Rx-Ready, providing the comfort and protection Wiley X is recognized for with a wide range of available prescription lenses. Wiley X’s DIGIFORCE Rx lens technology was specially developed to provide wearers with superior prescription accuracy and clear vision over the widest possible field of vision. Protection and performance like this are key reasons Wiley X is not only the choice of soldiers, but also top professional fishermen, champion NASCAR drivers and other high-demand athletes who operate in challenging environments.
