Prescription Safety Sunglasses Vs. Prescription Safety Glasses with Transition Lenses

Eye protection is important in both indoor and outdoor environments. They come with specific ratings to help protect your eyes against dirt, debris, and other projectiles from these environments. 

You also want to consider getting safety glasses that are sunglasses or come with transition lenses, as they give additional benefits with UV protection and optical clarity in various environments. 

It’s also easy to make these into safety prescription glasses, yet whether you pick prescription safety glasses or prescription safety sunglasses depends on which environment you’re looking to use these in. That includes making your safety glasses into photochromic prescription safety glasses as well. 

What is the major difference between transition prescription safety glasses and prescription safety sunglasses? 

Transition prescription safety glasses will offer more versatility than prescription safety sunglasses. This is because they will adapt to changing light conditions indoors and outdoors, and the tint will always be at an optimal shade to offer optimal clarity without needing two sets of prescription safety glasses. 

When it comes to prescription safety sunglasses, you will always have the lens shade, and you can add various types of sunglass lenses, such as polarized lenses, which are excellent when it comes to reducing glare from reflections and keeping your eyes comfortable in a range of lighting conditions as well.
