Prescription Safety Glasses Buying Guide
With lockdowns being lifted around the world, millions of prescription glasses wearers will be eager to spend more time outside in the coming weeks. As well as wearing masks, prescription safety glasses are a brilliant way of protecting yourself and your virus-vulnerable eyes on the go. We’ve compiled a guide to the ins and outs of prescription safety glasses, as well as given a couple of pointers for where to buy them.
How Do Safety Glasses Work?
Safety glasses are built on a fairly simple concept: protecting the eyes as much as possible. This is generally done by covering or sealing the areas surrounding your eyes (like with wraparound prescription safety glasses or prescription safety glasses with side shields). Usually made from polycarbonate or other durable plastics, safety glasses are a brilliant way to defend your eyes from irritants like chemicals or sawdust. While they’re usually seen in laboratories or factories, the recent pandemic has created a new level of demand, allowing for a more diverse, competitive range of safety glasses on the market, e.g. prescription bifocal safety glasses.
Prescription Safety Glasses for Work
Different jobs have different requirements for personal protective equipment (PPE). Some activities may require side shields, goggles or even full-face protection. In every country, there will be regulations in place to help determine which type of safety eyewear is most appropriate. As a rule of thumb, jobs like carpentry, plumbing or machine work will require face protection; if you need a prescription anyway, purchasing prescription safety glasses is important for your own (and your colleagues’) health and safety.
Prescription Safety Glasses for Sport
If you’re a prescription glasses wearer and you regularly take to the field, you should consider prescription safety glasses like these from Optical4u. Having your full vision available could be key to winning a match or event – plus, there’s no risk of them falling off and breaking; the vast majority have elasticated head straps. If they were good enough for professional athletes like Edgar Davids, you could bet they’ll help you out in games.

Prescription Safety Glasses FAQs
What Are Z87 Safety Glasses?
Z87.1-2015 Glasses (or just Z87 for short) are eyeglasses that meet the minimum requirement for eye protection as defined by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). This includes protection against impact, non-ionizing radiation, and liquid splash exposure.
Do Prescription Safety Glasses Have to Be Stamped Z87?
Yes, you can tell which glasses are safety glasses if the glasses frame and/or lens are stamped with Z87 or Z87+ to show that the glasses meet ANSI standards for Z87 safety glasses certification.
Do Employers Have to Pay for Prescription Safety Glasses?
According to a 2008 OSHA rule, employers are not required to pay for non-specialty prescription safety glasses, though they are encouraged to do so.
Do Prescription Safety Glasses Have UV Protection?
Not all prescription safety glasses offer UV protection, and even if they do, the level of UV protection varies. Optical4U offers performance tinted prescription lenses that provide as much UV protection as their best sunglasses.
Can I Get Tinted Prescription Safety Glasses?
Yes, Optical4U offer a variety of tints in their prescription safety glasses. These tints come in a range of colors for different lighting situations. Photochromic (or Transitions™) lenses are also available in some prescription safety glasses. These lenses change tints as light conditions change.
Can I Get Progressive Prescription Safety Glasses?
Yes, prescription safety glasses are available at Optical4U.com in both progressive lenses and distance/single vision lenses.
Which Prescription Safety Glasses are Best for Me?
The best prescription safety glasses for you fit well and meet or exceed the safety demands of your job. If you work mostly outdoors, you’ll want to consider tinted prescription lenses (or prescription safety sunglasses).
Do Prescription Safety Glasses Expire?
As ANSI and OSHA update their standards, older prescription safety glasses may expire. If you have an older pair of prescription safety glasses, you should make sure they are stamped with a Z87 or Z87+ mark. It is also possible that if your glasses become damaged, they will no longer meet ANSI and OSHA standards.
How Do I Keep My Safety Glasses From Fogging Up?
The best way to prevent fogging on your safety glasses is to order a pair with an anti-fog coating applied to the lenses. Optical4U offer this treatment for their lenses. Oil and dirt from your fingers can allow fog to build up on your lenses. So in addition, you should regularly clean your lenses with a soft microfiber cloth that won’t scratch them.
Where Can I Buy Safety Glasses and Prescription Safety Glasses?
Optical4U.com is the best place to buy safety glasses. With a wide selection of prescription lenses in safety glasses that meet the Z87 certification, you’re sure to find safety glasses that satisfy your needs.
How Much Do Safety Glasses and Prescription Safety Glasses Cost?
Basic safety glasses that meet Z87 standards start at around $40. Prescription safety glasses start at around $40 for the frames and about $120 for distance/single vision lenses, making the total starting price about $120. As you add lens coatings or choose progressive lenses, the price can increase from there to around $180 or more, depending on your preferences.
