Prescription Safety Glasses FAQs

Why should you wear prescription safety glasses?

Clear vision and physical eye protection are essential for safety on job sites or in environments where impact or other injury risks may be present. Safety eyewear provides all-in-one protection without the need to layer correction and protection or use inserts. Select frames and lenses that meet relevant safety standards.

What standards should safety eyewear meet?

The general safety standard for impact is ANSI Z87.1, which was updated in 2015. The OSHA 29 CFR 1910.133(b)(2) eye protection standard for general industry references ANSI Z87 standards, as does the International Safety Equipment Association. EN 166 is the European personal eye protection safety standard.

Will your prescription fit any pair of frames?

The base curve of frames can determine whether lenses with high diopters or prescription powers fit. Safety glasses frames are available with either a 6-Base or 8-Base curve. If you have a high-power prescription, you may want to avoid wraparound frames. Check to see whether frames are high RX compatible.

What are the best frame materials for safety eyewear?

Safety eyewear is available with polycarbonate plastic or metal frames. If you work with high voltage electricity, the materials in your eyewear should be non-conductive. This means that frames should not be metal and should not contain any metal components. Otherwise, look for frames rated for any relevant safety hazards.

Can you get prescription safety glasses with multi-focal or progressive lenses?

Many styles of prescription safety glasses online are available with options for bifocal, multifocal or progressive lenses. Check to make sure that the lens type you choose has the necessary safety rating. You may also be able to select lens options such as Premium Progressive lenses with Digital HD surfacing.

Is It Possible To Get Prescription Safety Glasses?

Most safety glasses sold in stores don't come with prescription lenses. If you wish to keep your eyes safe without wearing contacts or going without your prescription, then order prescription safety glasses online. Most frame styles and lens shades can support prescriptions in addition to durable, certified protection.

Are Safety Prescription Glasses Worth It?

Safety lenses are critical to keeping your eyes safe while working in hazardous areas. If your safety glasses don't have prescription lenses, then you'll need to wear your glasses underneath, wear contacts or attempt to work with blurry vision. Safety glasses with prescription lenses are surprisingly affordable, making them a worthwhile investment.

Are Safety Glasses Necessary?

If you aren't prepared for a hazardous project, then you may increase the risk of injury. Safety glasses not only shield your eyes from flying projectiles but also reduce the impact and offer a shatterproof design. If you're wearing standard glasses or sunglasses and a projectile hits them, they may shatter and cause further injury.

When Should You Wear Safety Glasses?

Wear safety glasses if you're working on a task that involves flying debris or other eye-related hazards. You should also wear them if you're working near such tasks. For example, if someone near you is mowing the lawn, grinding metal parts, cutting boards or performing other tasks that emit debris, it's best to wear certified safety glasses.

What Lenses Do Safety Glasses Have?

Shatter-resistant lenses are typically made of polycarbonate. This durable material is far less likely to shatter, is lightweight and can be coated with a scratch-resistant coating to extend the lifetime of clear views. Polycarbonate can be used for prescription lenses and made into a variety of shapes to fit your chosen frames.
