You most likely do not need to be reminded of the importance of safety glasses, especially if you work in a somewhat hazardous environment. If you have the right pair of glasses, such as Radians eyewear, you may be able to use them for a variety of safety applications. When one thinks of safety glasses, one probably does not think of stylish shades, or multi-functionality; however modern-day safety eye wear is designed with safety, style and multiple purposes in mind. Safety glasses have coating to protect the eyes from the sun’s UV rays, like sunglasses, and often bear some resemblance to sleek designs of fashion eye wear. These two aspects of this type of eye wear are a nice side-benefit of sorts, as you can easily wear these to the beach, if so desired! On a more practical level, safety eye wear is held to American National Standards Institute standards, meaning that they will be appropriately suited on and off the job. Think of those times you have to do some last minute work at home. If you’re doing anything with a saw, drill, or even some lawn work, there’s risk of debris flying out and hitting your eyes. Why take that risk when safety glasses are available?  Whether you’re at work, at home, or on the beach, having the right eye wear can be an eye-opening revelation! We would love to know your thoughts on why safety glasses are important, or any eyewear safety tips you have! Share in the comments!
