Eyes are one of the most important organs you have and are also one of the most vulnerable places for work place injury. The eyes can be easily damaged from many different hazards. Eyes are extremely sensitive to a number of things like air, light, dust, moisture and allergens. Eye protection is one of the most important types of protection you can wear. Safety glasses are one type of eye protection you can use. Safety glasses protect your eyes from the hazards you may encounter on the job or also during exercise or play. Many athletes wear safety glasses, for example tennis players or racquetball players to protect their eyes from impact should they be hit with a fast moving tennis or racquetball. Workers in an industry where safety glasses are commonly used to protect their eyes from splinters, sawdust, sparks, metal and other hazards are often sanding, chipping, welding, grinding, sawing and lathing. Safety glasses are also used for protection from harmful UV rays from the sun when working in an outdoor environment. These glasses are important to allow a worker better visibility in the bright sunlight, but also to protect the worker from the sun and debris they may encounter on the job site.
Different safety glasses are available for different applications, for example, welding requires a different type of safety glass than say sanding. No matter the type of safety glasses, they should be scratch resistant, shatter proof and allow for clear vision without distortion. Safety glasses often also include protection on the sides to prevent debris from entering from the side between the eyes and the glasses. Safety glasses should fit well and comfortably for all day wear and are available in a seemingly endless variety. There are many different colors to choose from, sizes, styles, lens types, lens colors and functionalities. Some safety glasses offer anti-fog properties, some welding glasses offer a flip lens style.
