Frequently Asked Questions

What are Z87 safety glasses?

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is an independent testing organization that issues safety ratings that are approved by OSHA. Z87.1 is the rating for all safety glasses. This means the glasses meet the ANSI rating and are acceptable at any worksite or where safety glasses are required.

Do safety glasses have UV protection?

Some brands do have safety frames with UV protection such as Wiley X and certain Oakley. Polycarbonate lenses which is standard for safety glasses provide UV protection, but additional coatings can provide even more protection.

Can safety glasses have prescription lenses?

Safety glasses are available in non-RX, RX, and non-RX fit-over-glasses variations. There are many prescription safety glasses from many popular brands to choose from. Prescription limitations may vary across certain styles of frames.

How do you tell if glasses are safety rated?

Both safety frames and safety lenses are required to be stamped to show they are ANSI rated. Frames are typically stamped inside the temples or on the insides of the side shields. Lenses are stamped outside the field of view with an insignia from the lab that produces the lenses.

Does an employer have to pay for prescription safety glasses?

On May 15, 2008, OSHA began to require that employers pay for employees’ prescription safety glasses when they are required and the protection remains on company property. Many employers provide an allowance for employees to purchase the safety eyewear on their own.

Do you ship prescription safety glasses to Canada?

Safety Gear Pro can ship your prescription safety glasses and safety goggles to USA and Canada.

Which prescription safety glasses are best for me?

Everyone’s safety glasses needs are a little different. The best pair for one person in one situation may be different from the best pair for another. Consider what you will be using the glasses for. Some common uses include machinery work, lab work, sports and military.

Can I get tinted prescription safety glasses?

How to Clean Safety Glasses

Perform Maintenance Care

People need to inspect their lenses on a regular basis to ensure their vision remains uncompromised. Dirty lenses can reduce vision while severely scratched lenses can cause them to crack and break.Safety glasses with headbands can increase the risk of the wearer sustaining an eye injury if they are soaked with sweat, worn-out due to excessive use, or have lost their grip to stay in place. If the headband has lost its elasticity, people should not continue using it, as it can slip out of place in the middle of work and result in an injury.

Dust off Any Debris and Dirt from the Safety Goggles

If the protective eyewear passes the initial inspection, workers need to know the steps to clean safety glasses next, starting from dusting off any debris and dirt found on them. Wearers can rinse their protective eyewear underwater or use a cleaning solution, specially designed to clean lenses.

Employers may provide their workers with a cleaning solution, but athletes will need to purchase it. For instance, cleaning motorcycle goggles will require motorcyclists to carry a cleaning solution. To dry the lenses, use a microfiber cloth. It removes streaks and residue left from the cleaning solution.

Rinse Safety Goggles Using Lukewarm Water

Wearers should clean their safety glasses under lukewarm water. They can either submerge the protective eyewear in water or place it under running water in the sink. This will clear off any leftover debris and dust from the frames and the lenses. Wearers can also clean the safety goggles with purified water kept at room temperature, especially if the water from the sink is not safe to drink.

Use a Toothbrush to Clean the Frames

To clean the frames, use a toothbrush with soft bristles. Do not place a lot of pressure on the toothbrush, as it can scratch the lenses. Do not use a shop rag, paper towel, shirt, or facial tissue to clean the lenses.The fabrics, although soft to the touch, contain coarse fibers that can graze the lenses. Moreover, these objects may contain traces of fabric softeners, detergents, dust, and dirt particles. By using them, it can damage the lenses of the safety glasses, causing scratches.

Use Microfiber Bag to Clean the Lenses

An extra step to take to ensure the safety goggles remain in good condition is to clean them using a microfiber bag. Use the inside of the bag to clean the eyewear, as the outside of the bag may have collected debris, dirt, or other impurities with time.Make it a point to clean the microfiber pouches and any cleaning cloths used to clean the safety glasses. If possible, invest in more than one microfiber cloth or other cleaning materials used to wipe the lenses.

Use the cleaning cloth with a type of solution, as using it alone can cause significant damage to the safety goggles. In addition, wearers need to follow the directions provided with the safety glasses upon purchasing. The manufacturer may have stated another and more specific method to clean the protective eyewear.

Place Protective Eyewear in a Glasses Case

After use, place the safety glasses in a glasses case that came with it. In doing so, it will protect the safety goggle from sustaining any scratches. Wearers can store them in a microfiber pouch or in an eyeglass case. Make sure the case has a hard exterior. Other containers to place safety goggles in include a plastic envelope, dust-proof container, bag, or box. Before placing the eyewear inside the case, make sure to clean it using the steps described here. People with prescription eyewear need to follow the same aforementioned steps for cleaning prescription safety glasses. Establish a cleaning routine after each workday or each athletic activity that requires you to wear protective eyewear.
