Safety goggles are worn in many different activities or work industries. Goggles are often used in cold weather when going skiing or snowboarding, in warm weather when dirt biking or motorcycling. Goggles form a protective barrier completely around the eyes to block out any hazards. In work environments, safety goggles are worn for the same reason, to block out any hazards. Welding goggles usually provide a tinted lens and some offer a flip up design. Safety goggles are also worn when working with chemicals. These provide splash protection in case of a chemical spill or splash. Safety goggles are the first choice for protective eye wear in a work environment involving chemicals. Safety goggles often offer anti fog and anti scratch properties and also many have ventilation systems. There are also safety goggles designed for high heat situations constructed of high performance heat resistant materials. Most safety goggles have a soft foam on the inside that is comfortable when contouring the face, and most have adjustable head bands that can be adjusted by the wearer for superior comfort. Some goggles have a "glasses" frame style, but still provide the soft foam around the eyes as a type of seal.
Safety goggles are available in many different styles. Depending on the application, there may be a safety goggle designed specially for that application. When looking for a safety goggle, keep in mind what they will be most used for. You can likely find a safety goggle that fits those particular needs. Some welding or chemical goggles also have the option of a detachable face shield for added protection. Be sure if they are to be worn for long periods of time that the safety goggles offer a ventilation system and the lenses are scratch free for clear visibility. If the lenses are damaged in any way, it can cause the eyes to become tired or cause damage to the eyes from trying to focus through an unclear lens. Goggles should always be stored in a protective case or bag or in protected place to keep them from easily being scratched or damaged in any way. For additional protection, some goggles may be treated with a special coating, for example, Duramass scratch resistant coating for an extended lens life.
