Prevent Eye Injuries with Safety Glasses. Eye injuries can happen when you least expect them. Especially in professions like construction and manufacturing, or during team sports when you or your kids are going full steam. Your eyes can be vulnerable; it’s important to know how to protect them no matter what you’re doing.
Wohl Optics' safety glasses look like stylish eyeglasses but they give you a lot more eye protection. Impact resistant polycarbonate lenses, side shields, and super resilient frames protect your eyes from injury. Some patients like the ease of contact lenses plus a pair of safety glasses, while others prefer having their prescription put into customized safety glasses. We can help you understand what makes sense for your vision and line of work.
Uncomfortable, ill-fitting, or inaccurate safety eyeglasses can cause problems like headaches and blurred vision and can make it difficult to shoot, judge depth, or even drive. This is why it is important to buy quality safety eyeglasses where lenses are created in a reputable optical lab with many years of experience.
Wohl Optics makes our own customized high-quality prescription and non-prescription safety glasses. Since we cut out the middleman, we are able to offer our patients significantly reduced prices compared to the competition.

Safety Eyeglass Feature Guide
Safety eyeglasses are the same as regular eyeglasses. They are very different and you can differentiate them by looking at the frames. Safety glasses have thicker frames than eye glasses. The lenses of such glasses are also designed stronger than regular eye glasses.
ANSI standard is very common standard that applies for safety glasses. In ANSI standard, the lenses should resist to impact and pass a test of drop ball. The test is conducted by dropping a ball from a certain distance onto the lenses.
When the lenses can pass the ball test, then the lenses can be used for safety eye glasses. Meanwhile, frame materials should be heat resistant. The frames design should be able to prevent the lenses being pressed into the eyes when they are being worn.
Lenses are usually made of polycarbonate. Polycarbonate is more impact resistant, more robust and stronger.
Safety eye glass is also equipped with top and side cover to give full protection to the eyes. And a string is also attached to the both sides of frames to protect the glasses from falling when they are being used.
Finally, choose safety eye glasses that give a good fit. Do not ignore your comfort when they are being worn.

Workplace Injuries Can Be Prevented with Safety Glasses
Workplace injuries can be prevented with safety glasses. Employers realize the importance of an active safety eye wear program in the health of their employees and in the success of their company. Eye and face protection must be provided whenever necessary to protect against chemical, environmental, and radiological hazards or mechanical irritants. OSHA requires employers to ensure the safety of all employees in the work environment
Workers who wear prescription glasses must also wear required eye protection. Do this with eye and face protection that fits comfortably over your glasses or safety goggles with your prescription.
Dust and chemicals present additional hazards to contacts wearers. OSHA recommends that workers have an extra pair of contacts or eyeglasses in case of contact failure or loss.
The employer shall ensure that each affected employee uses appropriate eye or face protection when exposed to eye or face hazards from flying particles, molten metal, liquid chemicals, acids or caustic liquids, chemical gases or vapors, or potentially injurious light radiation.
Ensuring worker safety includes conducting a workplace hazard assessment and providing adequate training for all workers who require eye and face protection. If you work or play in hazardous environments and you require prescription glasses, prescription safety glasses are a must to protect your vision.
What do we mean by hazardous environments? Dust, wind, dirt, radiation, high pressure water, chemicals, or lasers all put your vision at risk. Wohl Optics has a wide variety of options and styles to suit your needs.
Blunt impact can cause bruising (contusion) and cuts (lacerations) to the tissues of the eye. Bleeding in the back section of the eye (vitreous hemorrhage), tearing of the iris, displacement (dislocation) of the lens, and breaking (fracturing) the bones that surround the eye (orbital fracture) usually require a high energy (very forceful) impact. If this happens to you, we suggest you go immediately to a hospital emergency room.
Multiple complications are known to occur following eye injury: corneal scarring, hyphema, iridodialysis, post-traumatic glaucoma, uveitis cataract, vitreous hemorrhage and retinal detachment. The complications risk is high with retinal tears, penetrating injuries and severe blunt trauma.
Common sense safety precautions such as wearing safety goggles or glasses may be your best approach to preventing eye injuries altogether and maintaining healthy vision for a lifetime.
