Choosing the Right Safety Glasses
Even with all the safety features that modern safety glasses offer, the most important features to look for are comfort and fit. A comfortable, good-fitting pair of safety glasses promotes compliance. If the pair you choose doesn't give you both, you'll probably find reasons not to wear them.
What's the most important feature in choosing safety glasses?
Each person's head has its own shape and size, and fit is personal choice, so adjustability is a big plus. Better frames feature adjustable nose pads and a choice of temple lengths. And don't forget to look for rubber cushioned temple tips. They're a big help in keeping glasses in place and relieving pressure.
Are there comfort features to look for in safety eyewear?
Generally, you want frames that offer as much coverage as possible. Wrap-around sport styled frames provide great coverage and a cool look. Ratcheting temples offer the ability to pivot coverage of your brow and cheekbones. Vented frames are a key feature too because they keep lenses fog free.
