PRESCRIPTION GLASSES VS PRESCRIPTION SAFETY GLASSES
At our eye care centre, we offer various eyewear products to help you protect your eyes. However, every product is different and meets different needs. While prescription glasses correct specific refractive errors in the eyes, prescription safety glasses protect your eyes in scenarios where they can get hurt. These two types of eyewear are entirely different, from their material makeup to their safety standards. Manufacturers design clear lenses on safety glasses to protect your eyes from the impact of flying debris and splashing materials. When worn properly, these glasses cover a large area around your eyes, shielding them from high-impact objects, exposure to hazardous elements and chemicals.
If your occupation requires you to wear safety glasses or you regularly engage in activities that put your eyes in danger, we can help. We invite you to please get in touch if you'd like to learn more about the uses of our prescription safety glasses in St. Albert.
