Defence against eye injuries

 Over 40% of workplace eye injuries happen to mechanics, carpenters and plumbers and over 70% of those injuries occur due to flying objects.

Safety glasses are the best defence against eye injuries. Potential hazards can be avoided by simply wearing safety glasses at work. But they’re also important to use around the home and garden. Not only do they protect your eyes; they can also have a huge impact on the long term health of your eyes.

Top 3 Reasons To Wear Safety Glasses
  1. Prevent Damage

Many workplaces have dangerous particles or chemicals floating around in the air (wood, dust, dirt etc.) which can cause irritation as well as long lasting damage to your eyes.

Your home and garden also have dangerous particles and chemicals – your vision is also at risk when not at work.  Wearing safety glasses can help prevent these particles and chemicals from damaging your vision.

  1. UV Protection

Extensive UV light exposure from working long hours outdoors can have a massive negative impact on your eyes. You should always wear safety glasses to ensure you are giving your eyes the best protection available.

  1. Avoid Accidents

Safety glasses can protect your eyes against dangerous substances such as chemical splashes, oil, grease and fumes etc.

We have a natural tendency to wipe our eyes if they are irritated. If there are chemicals on your hands you risk wiping them into your eyes which could potentially cause irreversible damage e.g. blindness.

Prescription Safety Glasses

Prescription lenses can fit into safety glasses frames and you can also get tinted prescription safety sunglasses.

Don’t rely on your own sunglasses or prescription glasses to protect your eyes from harm. Wearing properly designed safety glasses will help protect you against potential hazards.
