Every day, we face hazards in our homes that we aren’t aware are dangerous. On average, more than 2.4 million eye injuries occur in the US each year. Nearly half of all those eye injuries occur in and around the home. But 90% of those eye injuries could be prevented if everyone wore protective eyewear daily. That’s why SafeVision has everyday prescription safety eyewear for every job, either at home or in the office.
Hazards Around The Home or Workplace
There are many ways you can avoid eye injuries while working at home. If you’re working, whether that be on the computer or at your workbench, here are a few things you should do to protect your eyes:
- Wear safety goggles or prescription safety eyewear to protect your eyes while working outside or cleaning.
- Follow the instructions for any tool or chemical use
- Inspect your surroundings for any hazards before you start working
- Store all tools and chemicals safely
- Wash your hands
Exposing our eyes to products like hot oil, oven cleaner, bleach, chlorine, and everyday products like toothpaste, mouthwash, or just hot water can cause serious eye injury. Projectiles from hammering nails, drilling wood or metal, or fragments from two hard surfaces can permanently injure your eyes. That is why the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Ocular Trauma recommend approved eyewear in every home.
Protect Your Eyes From Blue Light & Screens
Every day, we surround ourselves with technology and screens. Staring at a screen for too long can cause digital eye strain or dry eyes. That is why we recommend treating your lenses with a blue light blocker. These lens treatments pair nicely with our diverse line of safety frames we offer, and you can wear them comfortably all day whether at work or home.
The Right Prescription Safety Eyewear
Finding a pair of safety eyewear that works for your everyday life can be tricky. Thankfully, SafeVision has various frames, styles, and lens treatments to ensure your prescription safety eyewear is right for your job.
Our frames are lightweight, ANSI certified, and stylish. We carry both Wiley X and PENTAX branded eyewear that you can customize to fit your needs. We also know the importance of having safety eyewear that correctly fits your unique features, so they remain comfortable and protect your eyes. Don’t restrict yourself to only wearing prescription safety eyewear when you feel there are hazards around. Wear them all day, every day, with SafeVision.
