Normally, you can find the ANSI stamp inside your frame temples and outside your field of view on your lenses.

Side shields on prescription safety glasses are a great, useful tool for providing full 360-degree protection in a variety of segments. They widen the field of protection around your eyes and protect against airborne threats in environments such as the lab, workshop, or hospital. What we love about removable side shields is that they can be stowed away when they are not needed, turning your glasses into regular glasses. However, many of the safety glasses we carry have built-in side shields so you do not have to worry about losing the shields. Both options give you the ability to determine the level of protection that you require in the field. Additionally, RX safety goggles and wrap around safety glasses with prescription also provide additional protection the way side shields do.
