RX Safety answers: Glasses under airsoft masks?

Whether tactical games or paintballing, airsoft masks are used for superior protection for intense collisions. Sport or tactical, people shouldn’t be excluded on the basis of their eyewear needs. Because while prescription glasses can be worn under airsoft masks, they tend to be uncomfortable.

Don’t worry. In this article, we’ll talk about solutions at RX Safety. We’ll also discuss several of our exclusive eyewear products that are ideal for those who have prescription glasses.

So keep reading.

But first, let’s discuss the importance of having goggles with high safety standards.

Why your glasses should be industry approved

Glasses that meet ANSI Z87+ high impact standards are ideal when using airsoft masks because they’ve been tested and approved by rigorous industry standards. Quite simply, when an object is rapidly traveling toward your face, you want to make sure that you are protected in the highest way possible. Without these ratings, there can be serious and permanent damage to your eyes if an accident occurs. 

Some airsoft masks are military approved as well, providing even greater protection against impact.

In fact, next we’ll talk about the innovative technology that RX Safety offers when it comes to your safety.

RX insert: durability you can’t beat

Earlier we posed the question if you can wear prescription glasses in airsoft marks. While that option doesn’t provide the greatest comfort, with RX Safety you have the option of the RX Insert–let’s explain.

Without compromising your vision or comfort during a game, you can use the RX Insert, which is basically an interchangeable lens that can go in your airsoft mask during tactical and sport activities. 

At RX Safety, we pride ourselves on utilizing technology for the benefit of our customers, and providing great quality at affordable prices. Next, we’ll take a look at some of our goggles that we handpicked for your optimum safety and comfort.

    My young grandson plays baseball, and is a catcher. When he tries to catch a foul pop, he whips off his catcher’s mask and looks for the ball to catch it. Last night, for the second time, he lost the ball in the lights and it hit him in the eye, necessitating a trip to the emergency room and a scan to make sure their was no damage to the eye. Thankfully, aside from a very swollen eye, no other damage was done. However, he must refrain from ball playing for 10 days. Do you make eyeglasses that will protect the eye and will stay on the face when the catcher’s mask is whipped off the face? Thank you so much!
