Calling All Motorcyclists! Protect Your Eyes With Wiley X Motorcycle Goggles TODAY!


For those who ride motorcycles, there is absolutely nothing more exhilarating in the world than riding down country roads or the Interstate, feeling the wind through their hair and the sunshine on their face, not having a care in the world (though in all reality, motorcyclists should always wear helmets and protective gear when they ride.).

Eric W. from Stafford, Virginia felt the same way – that is, until April 2009 when the unthinkable occurred.

Eric was in a motorcycle accident three years ago. Luckily for him, he was wearing an open-faced helmet and also Wiley X Brick protective glasses that day. A car made a left turn in front of him, and he t-boned the car at 45 mph. He was ejected off his bike and went through its windshield, over the car, and into the intersection.

The windshield of his motorcycle struck his face at the bridge of his nose. Luckily, the force of the impact was absorbed by the nose piece and the frame of his Wiley X Brick protective glasses, which deflected the windshield up into his forehead. And while it took 21 stitches to close up his forehead and scalp, his eyes survived the accident because the glasses deflected the major impact (oh, and the glasses were broken into 3 pieces, by the way).

Because Eric wore those protective eyeglasses, he is riding once again instead of learning how to live without his eyesight!

That’s why every motorcyclist should consider investing in a pair of protective eyewear from Wiley X!

There are several styles and selections for every need! They can also accommodate prescription safety lenses up to +6.00 or -6.00 total power. Their proprietary lens technology adds 100% polarization to 100% ultra violet protection for clarity and contrast like no other!

Best of all, Wiley X’s Facial Cavity Seal blocks out wind, dust, debris, and cold to keep your eyes protected and tear-free!

Hey, Golfers and Golf Lovers! Do You Cherish Your Eyesight? Protect It With Callaway Eyewear!


Hey, Golfers and Golf Lovers! Do You Cherish Your Eyesight? Protect It With Callaway Eyewear!Golf lovers around the world depend on their eyesight. Whether they are professionals, amateurs, or simply spectators, these enthusiasts need healthy sight for optimal performance in the golfing world. Obstacles such as varying light and playing conditions and the continuous exposure to ultraviolet radiation, a golf lover’s visual ability can be greatly affected without proper eyewear.

It’s important that golfers have the right equipment to optimize their performance and give them a keen advantage over others. Of course they will need the right clubs and equipment, but one of the most crucial pieces to the puzzle of success for golfers is good vision.

Think about it – a great portion of the information that your brain receives when you’re setting up your shot comes from your eyes. If your eyesight is compromised in any way because of glare or too dark of lenses, your ability to set up winning shots decreases.

So what can you do to ensure that you will be at your optimal efficiency on the green? You can start by protecting one of the most important things you have – your eyesight.

Additionally, Transitions Optical is the title sponsor of the Transitions Championship®, a PGA Tour event at Innisbrook, a Salamander Golf & Spa Resort.

“What’s so special about Transitions lenses?” you ask. These lenses are the ideal everyday lens and a smart choice to help you achieve and enjoy healthy sight. These lenses are clear indoors and at night. In the great outdoors, they continuously adapt with every variation of light so you can consistently see your best.
