PRESCRIPTION SAFETY GLASSES
Many workers underestimate the importance of eye health, especially when working 9-5, five days a week. Who has time to go see an optician? But eye health is extremely important, and should be on your radar, especially if you work in an environment that requires you to wear safety glasses.
Safety glasses are not regular glasses and regular glasses are not a replacement for safety glasses. One major difference in these two products are material. Some safety glasses are made with the same material that is used for jet windshields. The chances of them shattering on impact is slim to none, because they are built and tested to withstand high impact projectiles that regular glass would not. Normal glasses, while sturdy and built for everyday wear, are made of a plastic called acetate that is not heavy duty enough to protect your eyes in work situations. The second main difference is that regular prescription glasses do not give the 360 covered that safety glasses do. Regular glasses are meant for comfort, not protection. Finally, the "safety goggles worn over glasses" look is not safe either. Regular glasses under safety glasses do not allow safety glasses to sit where they are supposed to or, in some cases, to seal appropriately to your face. If you need prescription lenses, and you wear safety glasses on a regular basis, the safest option is to buy prescription safety glasses.
Prescription safety glasses can only truly be considered protective eye wear if they meet certain requirements established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). OSHA enforces occupational health and safety standards while ANSI establishes manufacturing standards.
Prescription safety glasses are a must for those who require prescription glasses, but work or play in environments that may be hazardous to their eyes. Whether you need protect from dust, wind, radiation, chemicals or lasers.
