What Is Required When Ordering Prescription Safety Glasses?

If you wear prescription glasses you may think you’re getting all the protection that you need but that can’t be further from the truth. You’ll need to get special glasses to have the best safeguarding possible. You’re looking at Z87 prescription safety glasses, a type of rating showing the safety glasses have reached a certain safety level and industry standards. 

Wearing the correct safety glasses with a prescription will protect your eyes from high-impact and high-velocity projectiles. That means protection against flying dirt and debris that could make contact with your eyes, but it won’t due to the design of these prescription safety glasses

Ensure you have all the information which is necessary

You’ll want a proper eye examination and get the correct prescription. It’s not just a number for each eye; there are other numbers to weigh up as well. The information under OD will be your right eye and OS your left eye. The number you usually share is the sphere number, which is how near or farsighted you are (minus and plus, respectively). 

Then you have your cylinder and axis, which can be different per eye and will help with the clarity and comfort of your prescription. Other information to note is whether you will need bi or trifocals (your doctor will tell you) and the pupil distance (noted as PD on your prescription).
