Safety Glasses

Why take the chance of losing your vision when safety glasses or protective goggles can keep your eyes protected for a lifetime?

According to Prevent Blindness America, over 700,000 Americans are injured at work each year, with another 125,000 injured at home. More than 40,000 children and adults in the United States suffer eye injuries as a result of sports, with tens of thousands more injuries that arent reported.

What distinguishes safety glasses and goggles from conventional eyeglasses?

Regular eyeglasses, which optical specialists sometimes refer to as “dress eyewear,” must meet a higher requirement of impact resistance than safety eyewear. Both the lenses and the frames of safety glasses and goggles must meet this higher level.

Prescription safety glasses and non-prescription (commonly known as “plano”) safety glasses are the two types of safety glasses available.

Regular prescription eyeglasses do not qualify as safety glasses unless they meet particular standards, regardless of their size or the durability of the frame and lenses.

The federal government in the United States creates workplace safety recommendations to reduce the danger of on-the-job injuries.The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) of the United States Department of Labor is in charge of workplace and educational safety.

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI), a private, non-profit organisation that develops quality and safety guidelines for a wide range of products, has embraced OSHA’s safety eyewear standards.

Eyeglasses (both prescription and non-prescription), goggles, face shields, welding helmets, and full-face respirators are among the eye protection devices covered by the ANSI standard for eye safety.

How to evaluate the ratings of safety goggles and glasses.

Plus sign. Look for the “+” mark that signifies approval at high impact to see if a lens has passed the high velocity test stated above.
