Some coatings for safety glasses are better for specific jobs than others, and not every coating is for everybody.
If you’re considering purchasing prescription safety glasses online, it’s a good idea to consider which lens coatings are appropriate for the work you’ll be doing in them. Will you be woodworking, riding the bike, working outdoors, sitting behind a computer? Each of these dictates a different set of coatings.
Some people think that the coatings that they get on their everyday glasses will work just as well on the job. This is true for some, but for most people who need prescription safety glasses this is very wrong. Case and point is anti-reflective coating, which is great for everyday glasses and a bad choice for most environments where safety eyewear is required.
Most of our customers order scratch coating without any other coatings. Others order more or less depending on their application and needs. The important thing is to make sure that your coating is appropriate for your application. If you order a coating that will wear out before the glasses do, you are going to regret it.
A few more things to consider regarding coatings: saltwater is hard on coatings, scratch coating is unnecessary on glass lenses, and mirrors will look much different on light lenses than they will on dark ones. If you are not sure whether a coating is right for the glasses you need, just give us a call and we’ll talk about it. Generally speaking, we can tell you exactly what’s best for your work after a brief explanation of what it is that you do.
