Common Mistakes When Buying Safety Glasses
Safety glasses are safety glasses, right?
Different safety glasses are used for different purposes and not purchasing the right glasses for you or making these common mistakes will be detrimental to your eye safety and health.
Not Getting Them Fitted
Everyone has a unique head shape that means glasses that fit on one person may not fit right on you, causing slippage and pinching. Safety glasses that are fitted to your face will not only protect your eyes from projectiles, debris, and splashes, but be comfortable being warm for long periods of time.
Purchasing From A Kiosk
Purchasing your safety glasses from a kiosk is a big risk to not only your safety but your wallet. High-quality safety glasses are an investment that puts your safety first, without taking unnecessary risk. At SafeVision™, we believe that you should always try on your safety glasses before committing to them. Purchasing from a kiosk does not allow you this privilege, superimposing the glasses over a picture of you rather than you trying them on to see if they fit.
Choosing The Wrong Safety Frames
There are different types of safety frames that you can choose for your prescription safety glasses. For example, you can choose between traditional and wraparound frames, and each comes with its own benefits.
Traditional safety glasses look much like regular glasses but come with side shields to prevent objects from getting around the frame. Wraparound glasses curve around your face and the side of your eyes for a sleek look and more protection than traditional safety glasses.
Choosing the right frame will result in superior comfort and protection.
