Where are Prescription Safety Glasses Made?

The manufacturing process for prescription safety glasses can often seem mysterious, prompting many to wonder where exactly they are made. From the production of frames and the molding of semi-finished lenses to the final assembly and coating, each step involves a combination of international and domestic efforts. Understanding this process reveals the intricate work and precision required to deliver high-quality safety eyewear.

The Manufacturing Process

Prescription safety glasses are assembled from components made in various parts of the world. Here’s a breakdown of the process:



The frames for prescription safety glasses are primarily produced internationally. Manufacturers in various countries specialize in creating durable and stylish frames suitable for safety eyewear.



Semi-finished lenses are molded in facilities around the globe. These lenses are the raw form that will later be processed into custom prescription lenses.


Lens Processing and Coating

This is where we come in. At our facility in Middlesex, New Jersey, USA, we handle all prescription lens manufacturing.

While we occasionally send lenses to other US labs for special coatings, most of our work is done in-house. This allows us to reduce costs for you, the end-user. Although we don’t mold frames or semi-finished lenses in-house, as these require large-scale operations, we strive to complete as much of the process as possible domestically.

In-House Manufacturing Advantages

We operate a comprehensive optical lab for both glass and plastic lenses, which allows us to handle the majority of the prescription lens manufacturing process ourselves. This in-house capability not only ensures high quality but also reduces costs significantly compared to other retailers.

Specialized Coatings: For specific treatments, we collaborate with specialized labs in the United States. These partnerships enable us to provide a wide range of high-quality coatings tailored to your needs.

Precision and Quality: Creating prescription safety glasses requires precision machinery and meticulous calculations, especially for complex prescriptions and wraparound styles. Our facility is equipped to handle these demands, ensuring that we deliver stylish, high-quality safety glasses at competitive prices.

Our Commitment: We take pride in offering products that meet stringent safety and quality standards. While we source components globally, all final manufacturing and assembly of our prescription lenses occur domestically in the USA. This commitment allows us to provide you with top-notch safety glasses that are both reliable and affordable.
