Prescription Safety Glasses
In the United States, approximately 25 million people experience eye problems and injury, every year. Many of these eye injuries take place in the workplace or on the job site. Furthermore, the American Academy of Ophthalmology estimates that at least 90% of these cases would not exist if the victim was using proper eye protection and safety glasses. This has caused many American companies to require that their employees to use safety eyewear when working. While it’s important to protect your eyes, it may be difficult to use safety glasses over your regular glasses.

Industrial Safety Glasses: Factors to Consider
At Brush Optical, we’re dedicated to providing the best in quality prescription safety glasses to individuals and businesses throughout our surrounding communities. Additionally, we want to ensure that all our glasses are safe for wherever your job takes place. With this in mind, industrial safety eyewear undergo the following testing and marking to ensure the proper fit and proper prescription.
Frame Test, Frame Marking, Lens Test, & Lens Marking
Frame Test: The frames of safety glasses are put through extensive, high-velocity and high-mass testing to ensure the strength of the frame. This helps ensure that glasses meet the requirement for lateral coverage and durability.
Frame Marking: Also, the frames must be marked correctly to ensure the eyewear is the proper fit for the customer. Without proper markings, patients may receive glasses that don’t hold up to the rigorous conditions of their jobs.
Lens Test: Lenses are classified based on their performance as basic or high-impact models. Basic impact models must pass a low-velocity test, while testing for high-impact models is more intensive to ensure the strength of the lenses.
Lens Marking: Just like safety frames, the lenses must also be marked accordingly to ensure the proper fit, grade, and prescription.
