Prescription Safety Glasses Aren’t Just For Manufacturing
At SafeVision® we discuss the many benefits prescription safety glasses have in the industrial field, protecting the eyes of workers like welders and miners with a variety of special finishes, such as anti-fog and UV protection.
But safety glasses aren’t just for industrial environments – they are extremely beneficial for a variety of applications in everyday life.
Prescription Safety Glasses 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 fragments can cause serious eye injury.
SafeVision® has developed stylish everyday prescription safety glasses that look just like your fashion frames but with a higher level of protection that normal lenses don’t offer.
Prescription Safety Glasses In The Office
Sitting in front of a computer all day can put a lot of strain on your vision. Known as computer vision syndrome (CVS) or digital eye strain, CVS causes eye discomfort that increases the longer you look at a digital screen.
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:
- Neck and shoulder pain (or “tech neck”)
- Blurred vision
- Dry eyes
To combat this syndrome, it is essential that you invest in quality safety eyewear like the SafeVision Bravo - Computer that provides unique lens design, tints or coatings that reduce eye strain. Even if you do not wear prescription glasses, non-prescription safety glasses can help reduce vision problems in the office.
Symptoms of CVS 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
For example, take the story of Mark Hackstadt, whose vision was saved from a stray cable while riding his bike thanks to his prescription safety eyewear.
Remember, typical sunglasses will not save your vision from an accident. They are not strong enough to withstand impact like what Mr. Hackstadt experienced, as they are often only built to meet minimum U.S. Food and Drug Administration standards.
Whether at home, at work, or at play, investing in a high-quality pair of safety glasses from SafeVision will protect your eyes while looking stylish enough to wear in any situation.
