COLOR REDEFINED

SHOP CAPTIVATE™

ENHANCED COLOR

CAPTIVATE™ filters out the light where blue merges with green and green merges with red. This allows more light where it’s easier for your eyes to see, resulting in enhanced blues, greens and reds for a true color experience

GREATER CLARITY

Blue light with shorter wavelengths and higher frequencies scatter light and create haze. By filtering out this “bad” blue light, CAPTIVATE™ removes the haze and allows distant objects to be seen more clearly

BETTER DEPTH PERCEPTION

By eliminating the blue light haze while separating and enhancing colors in the visual spectrum, CAPTIVATE™ lenses will enhance depth perception

INCREASED CONTRAST

CAPTIVATE™ technology is offered in a variety of tint options so you can fine-tune your choice of lens based on the specific needs of your environment

OLEOPHOBIC PROPERTIES

Wiley X utilizes a proprietary oleophobic coating on all Captivate lenses to create a smoother lens surface, which helps to keep dust, dirt, oil, snow and water from sticking to the lens. This in turn helps prevent smudging and water spots, making the lenses much easier to clean than an uncoated, standard lens.

SCRATCH/ABRASION RESISTANCE

Captivate lenses achieve a Bayer 7 rating* for scratch resistance. A rating of 4 or higher equates to a premium coating.

*BAYER ABRASION TEST, EXPLAINED[1]
The Bayer test is one of the most often cited test methods for abrasion resistance. This test subjects both a coated lens and an uncoated lens to abrasion from oscillating “sand.” After a set number of cycles, the haze gain is measured on both lenses. The ratio of haze gain of the uncoated lens to the coated lens is the Bayer Ratio. A Bayer Ratio of “1” means that the coating has equivalent abrasion resistance to uncoated lens. A Bayer Ratio of “7” means that the uncoated standard lens had seven times the haze gain as the coated lens. A common standard Bayer Ratio equal to “4” or greater is considered by the industry to be a premium coating.
