Prescription Safety Glasses Are Beneficial Outside Industrial Environments

Safety Glasses Are Beneficial

At SafeVision, we discuss the many benefits prescription safety eyewear has in the industrial field, protecting the eyes of workers like carpenters and miners with a variety of special finishes, such as anti-fog and UV protection.

But safety eyewear isn’t just for industrial environments – prescription safety glasses are extremely beneficial for a variety of applications in everyday life.

Prescription safety glasses are beneficial at home

We like to think of our homes as a safe environment, but there are still plenty of hazards to your eyes that you can experience throughout your daily routine.

Whether cleaning the kitchen or hanging a shelf, hazardous materials and debris like cleaning chemicals or drywall debris can cause serious eye injury.

SafeVision has stylish prescription safety glasses that look just like your fashion frames but with a higher level of protection.

Prescription safety glasses in the office

Sitting in front of a computer all day can put a lot of strain on your vision. Often referred to as digital eye strain, which causes eye discomfort that increases the longer you look at a digital screen. HEV (High Energy Visible) blue light emitted by screens is often the culprit. Optical industry leaders like HOYA Vision Care have developed lenses and coatings to help reduce the harmful effects of blue light.

Since office works tend to spend an average of seven hours a day on our computers, that leads to a lot of eye strain which will produce symptoms like:

  • Headaches
  • Neck and shoulder pain (or “tech neck”)
  • Blurred vision
  • Dry eyes

At SafeVision by HOYA, we offer one of the best-in-class lens treatments to combat digital eye strain; Recharge! This lens coating is not your average blue light filtering option. It’s scratch resistance, smudge resistant, water resistant, anti-reflective AND offers blue light protection. Be sure to ask you eye care provider about this option the next time you’re being fitted for safety or dresswear spectacles.

Symptoms of digital eye strain can also be reduced by keeping your work space well lit, reducing glare on the screen, and engaging in proper computer viewing habits.

Prescription safety glasses in the field

Whether biking, golfing, hunting, or performing many other activities that are a part of an active lifestyle, safety glasses are essential in protecting your eyes from damage.

Remember, typical sunglasses, “readers” or your every-day pair of spectacles are not designed to withstand high impact.

ALL SafeVision safety eyewear meets ANSI Z87.1 high mass and high velocity impact resistance requirements. This includes not only the frames but also the lenses. Additionally, they meet the frontal and lateral coverage requirements to ensure your eyes and the sensitive skin around them are covered.

Whether at home, at work, or at play, investing in a quality pair of safety glasses from SafeVision will protect your eyes while looking stylish enough to wear in any situation.
