Safety Glasses—Keeping Your Eyes Safe and Comfortable

Safety glasses are an essential piece of personal protective equipment (PPE) for anyone working in a hazardous environment. They provide eye protection from potential hazards such as flying particles, dust, or chemical splashes. But what exactly are safety glasses? What’s the difference between low and medium impact? And where can you find a selection of quality safety glasses? Read on to find out!

What Are Safety Glasses?

Safety glasses are basically just regular eyeglasses with additional features that make them safer in hazardous environments. For example, they might have side-shields that protect your eyes from the sides, or wraparound lenses that offer better coverage than standard frames. Some safety glasses also have special coatings that block UV light or make them fog-resistant.

What Are Prescription Safety Glasses?

Prescription safety glasses combine the features of regular eye protection with prescription lenses. This means that if you’re someone who wears corrective lenses, you can still get the same level of protection as everyone else. Many companies even offer custom-made prescription safety glasses so you can get the exact fit and look you want.

Difference Between Low and Medium Impact Safety Glasses

The biggest difference between low and medium impact safety glasses is their level of protection. Low impact safety glasses provide basic protection against flying particles and dust, while medium impact safety glasses offer more robust protection against larger objects such as falling tools or chemical splashes. It’s important to make sure you choose the right type of lens for your working environment—a pair of low impact lenses won’t do much good in a high-risk situation!
