Did you know that 90% of eye injuries could have been prevented by wearing the appropriate safety eyewear? At Texas State Optical, we’ve seen many patients who’ve suffered from eye injuries due to accidents at work or during recreational activities. That’s why we offer a wide range of safety glasses and frames for a variety of activities.
What are Safety Glasses?
Safety glasses are specially designed to provide protection for the eyes from hazards such as flying projectiles, debris, chemicals, and radiation. They are made from shatter-resistant materials and have impact-resistant lenses that can withstand various hazards.
There are several types of safety glasses available, each with its own unique features and benefits. Let’s take a look at some of the most common types:
Prescription Safety Glasses: These are safety glasses that are custom-made to your individual prescription. They provide the same level of protection as regular safety glasses but also correct your vision.
Anti-Fog Safety Glasses: These safety glasses have a special coating that prevents them from fogging up, even in high humidity or temperature environments.
Welding Safety Glasses: This variety are specially designed for use during welding and cutting operations. They have dark lenses that protect the eyes from the bright light and intense heat produced during welding.
Laser Safety Glasses: These are designed to protect the eyes from the intense light produced by lasers. They have special lenses that absorb the laser light and prevent it from reaching the eyes.
Chemical Splash Safety Glasses: These safety glasses provide protection from chemical splashes and fumes. They have special lenses that are resistant to chemical exposure.
