Protective eyewear With the importance of employee safety in mind, we provide UVEX protective eyewear, even in prescription bi or multifocal lenses.
Safety lenses VS Ordinary lenses
Lenses are the most important component of safety prescription eyewear. It is therefore crucial to use lenses that can withstand extraordinary pressure. We supply Polycarbonate lenses as they offer significantly greater impact resistance than glass or plastic (CR39) lenses.
Polycarbonate material is manufactured differently as an enormous amount of pressure is used to compress the raw material. The resulting product holds up well under impact due to its flexible and soft nature that gives slightly under pressure.
Polycarbonate lenses also have a built-in ultraviolet (UV) protection property. All Polycarbonate lenses are treated with lens hardening, which improves scratch resistance up to six times compared to uncoated lenses.
We also offer Transitions Polycarbonate lenses in all the above designs. These lenses darken in sunlight and lighten indoors to offer automatic sun protection and visual comfort to wearers.
Tailor-made lens designs
Enabling you to utilise your safety specs as you would a normal pair of glasses.
One focal point throughout the lens – this is used to correct mainly distance vision.
Two separate portions – the top part being for distance correction and the bottom part for reading or near vision correction.
Designed to give the wearer distance, intermediate and near vision correction without the usual “jump” line used in bifocals. This offers natural, smooth and uninterrupted transition from one focus point to another.
All Polycarbonate lenses are treated with Permagard (or lens hardening)which improves scratch resistance up to six times compared to uncoated lenses.
We also offerTransitions Polycarbonate lensesin all the above designs. Theselenses darken in sunlight and lighten indoors to offer automatic sun protection and visual comfort to wearers.
Polycarbonate’s impact resistant nature could tempt you to forgo placing these lenses into a safety frame, using a regular spectacle frame instead.
Regular spectacle frames are not capable of holding up to the impact of a violent contact situation and could cause major injuries to the wearer’s face.
