- Safety prescription glasses can prevent foreign objects that are floating around from damaging your vision.
Dangerous particles or chemicals could be floating around in your workplace. Some jobs that are at high risk include construction, maintenance, welding, plumbing, and mining. Dirt, dust, pollen, and wood can irritate your eyes and potentially cause long-lasting damage.
- Avoid major accidents
Shield your eyes from splashes of chemicals, grease or oil, fumes, burns, and flying wood chips. Wiping substances into your eyes, sometimes without noticing, can easily scratch them. You can have recurring, long-term problems, including blindness, from only a minor injury.
- UV light protection
Working long hours outside with UV light exposure can affect the fragile tissues in the eye. Many exposed workers don’t realize the importance of a regular visit to the eye doctor; an eye exam could relay diseases like multiple sclerosis or even cancer.
- Computer Vision Syndrome
Wearing safety prescription glasses can also prevent Computer Vision Syndrome. CVS is the result of viewing a computer screen for long periods of time. Workers can develop eyestrain, blurred vision, and dry eyes. You may not realize that the poor lighting or glare on the computer screen is causing these symptoms. Wearing safety glasses with coated lenses will help to keep away the discomfort and blurred vision.
- Fashionable Eyewear
You may not feel comfortable wearing different glasses but there are plenty of stylish safety prescription glasses to choose from. The safety prescription glasses are designed to fit your specific needs for your work environment. You can have colored frames, tinted lenses, wrap-around glasses, removable foam, and more. Some of them even allow you to insert your prescription lenses.
