            Description (by Rebecca)

            WileyX Climate Control is a series of high end sports wrap styles with a foam-lined gasket intended to fill the gap between the frame and the skin for windproofing. In a properly fitted frame, this gasket keeps out infiltrates, blocks airflow and increases humidity around the eyes, reducing evaporative tear loss and improving eye comfort, making them ideal for people with moderate to severe dry eye symptoms. Each framestyle is available with a variety of frame color and lens combinations.

            The WileyX Boss is a roomier fit. Closest equivalents in 7Eye Airshields, as regards shape and size, are probably Panhead and Derby.

            How do I select a frame style?

            As with all moisture chamber glasses, fit is dependent even more on face shape than sizing, because of how the seal needs to conform to the face. You may want to visit a local dealer (see wileyx.com and look for their dealer locator page). You can also order glasses and return them if they do not fit (see Return Policy for details).

            What other products should I consider?

            Functionally, 7Eye AirShield style glasses are very similar in concept though they tend to have deeper shields and a greater variety of frame colors and lens options.

            Sizing

            • Eye size: Lens width: 68 mm | Distance between lenses: 18 mm | Temple: 125 mm
            • Head size: Medium to Large

            PATENTED FACIAL CAVITY™ SEALS

            Fine dust and pollen, as well as wind, can cause long-term eye irritation, such as Dry Eye Syndrome. Peripheral light can also diminish optical clarity.

            Wiley X patented removable soft foam FACIAL CAVITY™ SEALS block out even the finest irritants and peripheral light, protecting the eyes and allowing polarized lenses to perform at peak levels.

            Usage and Care

            What are these glasses used for?

            WileyX Climate Control glasses are designed for sports and other outdoor uses where solid, high end windproof eyewear is needed. Because of the excellent seal this type of glasses provides, they are popular among dry eye patients.

            The most common use is for outdoors (to protect against wind) and for driving (to protect against air conditioning and heating). However, the glasses can be fitted with clear or photochromic (light-adjusting) lenses, so many patients with severe symptoms use them indoors as well, especially if they are heavy computer users, because the moisture retaining effect both keeps their eyes more comfortable and reduces the need for frequent eyedrop application. Aesthetically, though, it's important to note that with clear lenses, the glasses will appear more "goggly". 

            For patients with especially severe symptoms and extreme sensitivity or pain issues, moisture chamber glasses like these may be the most reliable, most effective way to reduce discomfort to a manageable level while using a computer, driving or performing outdoor activities.

            Cleaning Eyewear

            Most importantly never lay your WX eyewear with the lenses facing down, as this will cause scratches. When not in use it's best to store your WX eyewear in your provided WX storage case.  

            Alcohol based products, DEET, perspiration, sunscreen, and hairspray can damage lens coatings and cause them to spot, craze and/or peel if not cleaned in a short period of time. Salt water can be especially damaging. Do not leave saline residue spots on the eyewear for too long as salt water is corrosive and will dry into white residue. This residue could erode some of the surface coatings on the lenses. If it is not possible to clean the glasses right away, be sure that they are rinsed off immediately and then thoroughly clean both lenses and frame as soon as possible.  

            Do not use ammonia, bleach, vinegar or window cleaner as those chemicals may strip away the coatings on your glasses. We suggest using a mild dish or hand soap and warm water. This solution is mild enough to protect the lenses while still cleaning.  Although tempting, do not clean your lenses with a tissue or the corner of your shirt.  

            Your shirt is likely filled with dust particles that can scratch the lenses. We suggest using your provided WX microfiber cloth or a soft cotton cloth.  Wiping dry lenses may eventually cause scratches. We suggest to always run lenses under water before wiping. If water is not available, then lightly blow on lenses to remove any fine particles prior to wiping.

            Cleaning the Facial Cavity™ Seal

            Do not use any chemicals on your Facial Cavity™ Seal as this will cause foam to eventually disintegrate. We suggest a gentle rinse of warm water and mild dish or hand soap. To prolong the life do not rub the foam dry.  We suggest cleaning your Facial Cavity™ seal when you have time to let naturally air dry. You may also purchase a replacement Facial Cavity™ Seal from your local dealer.
