Busting some Common Myths about Prescription Safety Glasses

Sep 17, 2019

With safety awareness at an all-time high, many people still refuse to wear prescription safety glasses.

Perhaps you too have avoided wearing safety eyewear because you believe one of the common myths people have about them. If so, we are here to debunk those myths for you.

Myth #1. They’re Unattractive. I’ll Look Goofy Wearing Them 

Just a few years ago, there was a limited selection of prescription safety glasses available. That’s no longer the case, as  we now offer a wide selection of stylish, attractive frames. Most look just like regular glasses, meaning your friends will probably not even realize yours are safety eyewear. Who knows, you may like your frames so much that you will want to wear them all the time.

Myth #2. Prescription Safety Glasses are Bulky and Uncomfortable

The terms “prescription safety glasses” and “safety goggles” are often used interchangeably; however, they are not the same thing. Prescription safety glasses are worn in place of your regular eyewear, not over top of it. They are sleek and fit comfortably on your head, unlike goggles which do tend to be somewhat bulky. 

Myth #3. I can Wear Regular Safety Glasses While Welding

Prescription safety glasses protect your eyes from impact due to flying objects. They do not safeguard against brazing, IR, or UV light. We do offer a full line of safety eyewear that is suitable for welding applications.

Myth #4. Prescription Safety Glasses are too Expensive

Our prescription safety glasses are surprisingly affordable. With frames starting as low as $30, anyone can afford the quality prescription eyewear they need. Check our website often for special deals that will save you even more money.

Now you have no more excuses for not having the prescription safety eyewear you need. If you are looking for a quality pair of glasses that you will actually enjoy wearing, please contact us.
