Prescription Safety Glasses

Frequently Asked Questions

ANSI Z87.1+ high-velocity prescription safety glasses are specifically designed to protect the wearer’s eyes from high-velocity impact hazards. The standard includes flying fragments, objects, particles, and more encountered in hazardous environments such as construction sites, woodworking shops, or industrial settings.

The ANSI Z87.1 standard classifies safety glasses into two main categories: standard impact and high impact, indicated by the “+” symbol. The “high velocity” term refers to the high-impact classification, which goes through stringent testing below:

  1. High Mass Impact Test: This involves dropping a 500g pointed weight from a height of 127 cm onto the glasses.
  2. High-Velocity Impact Test: This test shoots a 6.35 mm diameter steel ball at 150 feet/second (approximately 102 mph) at the glasses.
  3. Durability Test: This test subjects the glasses to exposure to non-ionizing radiation and chemicals.

Safety glasses that pass these tests can bear the “Z87+” marking, which means they offer a higher level of protection than regular safety glasses and are suitable for environments with a risk of high-speed particles striking the wearer’s eyes.

For prescription safety glasses to be marked with the ANSI Z87.1+ high velocity, they must meet these criteria.

To discover if your glasses are safety rated just look inside your frame and lenses. Safety rated frames and lenses are required to have the ANSI stamp on them.

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

The main difference between ANSI Z87.1 and ANSI Z87+ is that ANSI Z87+ incorporates additional requirements and enhancements beyond the previous version, ANSI Z87.1.

ANSI Z87.1 is the earlier version of the ANSI standard for occupational and educational eye and face protection. It outlines the essential safety glasses, goggles, face shields, and other protective eyewear requirements. ANSI Z87.1 includes specifications for impact resistance, optical clarity, coverage, fit, and frame and lens durability requirements.

The ANSI Z87+ standard is an updated version that includes all the requirements of ANSI Z87.1 while adding additional provisions to enhance safety and performance. ANSI Z87+ introduces different criteria and testing protocols to address emerging hazards and incorporate advancements in protective eyewear technology. The “+” designation signifies that the standard includes the latest revisions and updates beyond the previous version.

The enhancements in ANSI Z87+ include:

  • Higher Standard of impact resistance testing.
  • Improved optical quality requirements.
  • Expanded coverage.
  • Fit criteria.
  • Additional frame and lens durability provisions.

ANSI Z87+ aims to provide higher protection and performance for workers in various industries by considering new materials, technologies, and potential hazards.

Prescription Safety Glasses generally take between 7-10 business days to be completed and shipped.

Just remember, our production time varies according to the frame and lens type you chose.

Yes, prescription safety glasses must be Z87 stamped. The kind of stamp may vary according to what your frame was rated for.

General Safety Glasses have the ANSI Z87.1 stamp, and High Impact rated safety glasses have the ANSI Z87+ stamp.

If the frame is not ANSI certified, it will only contain the manufacturer’s mark. In addition, detachable side shields will be marked separately from your main lenses.

No, prescription safety glasses do not expire! As long as you feel comfortable with your vision, you can use your prescription safety glasses.

Yes, Rx-Safety makes prescription safety glasses that will not fog by offering the option to add a permanent anti-fog coating during the lens selection process. The Permanent Anti Fog coating can be applied to any prescription safety lens to address the common issue of lens fogging.

Rx-Safety’s anti-fog coating tackles this issue head-on. It works by altering the way water interacts with the lens surface. Instead of forming tiny droplets, the coating reduces the surface tension of the water, causing it to spread out evenly in a thin, invisible layer. This prevents the water from clustering into droplets that can obscure vision.

Fog Free Coating benefits people working in environments with fluctuating temperatures or high humidity and those engaged in physical activities that cause perspiration. It ensures that the wearer maintains a clear field of vision, which is crucial for safety and performance.
Furthermore, the anti-fog coating is permanent, so it remains effective for the life of the lenses. This eliminates the need for repeated applications or additional anti-fog products, making it both convenient and cost-effective in the long run.
