The best prescription safety glasses for small faces


Finding prescription safety glasses can be an overwhelming task on their own. The process becomes even more overwhelming when they aren’t accommodating for a particular face size.

While this used to be extremely common in the past with prescription safety glasses, that is no longer the case. In fact, at RX Safety, you will find a variety of prescription safety glasses that accommodate all types of face sizes.

We know that having a smaller face can be difficult when choosing prescription safety glasses so that’s what we’ll be discussing in this article. We’ll be providing top recommendations that offer security and protection, as well as talk about how important it is to have the right size prescription safety glasses.

Let’s get started.

Why fit matters with safety glasses 

If you have a problem buying prescription safety glasses because of the sizing, don’t worry. You’re actually in good company as it is a pretty common problem.

As common as it is, it is still something that needs to be acknowledged as it is extremely important to have the right size safety glasses. 

The most obvious reason is safety. When safety glasses are too big, they can slide from the face during tasks, which can cause injuries.

As a person needs to wear them for longer periods of time for work or other projects, they deserve a secure, comfortable fit that will provide all-day protection.

That being said, let’s get into some of these high quality prescription safety glasses that we recommend for smaller faces.

The RX-Q100 prescription safety glasses 

These sleek, wraparound frames provide the ultimate level of security and protection and were intentionally designed for small faces.  

They are extremely secure as they feature rubber-coated temple bars and a saddle bridge nose pad which provides a close, secure fit, making you feel more secure in the workplace. 

And being ANSI and European approved, they provide optimum protection for all wearers, including those with high prescription.

The RX-17012 prescription safety glasses

These classic, black rectangular frames were designed with comfort and protection in mind. 

They come in a small size, to accommodate those who have smaller faces–but that’s not it.

These glasses feature removable side shields that you can use when you need additional protection.

They also accommodate high prescription and also are ANSI and European certified, so you can feel confident in any workplace or environment that requires eye protection. 

The RX-80 prescription safety glasses 

These glasses are a rectangular, acrylic plastic designed specifically for small and medium face types. 

They feature removable side shields as well as spring hinges and bent temple bars for added protection and a more secure fit.

In several select colors, they are also ANSI and European certified
