We may get wise with experience as we age, but we often can’t say the same about our vision. The American Federation® for the Blind reports that Americans 45-64 years of age are twice as likely to report a loss of vision than their 18-44 year old counterparts. Yet, we’re not about to let a little vision loss stop us from contributing to the workforce or our own diy projects – we just need a bit of help in the form of Bifocal Safety Glasses to accomplish our tasks while keeping our precious eyes safe and protected.

So how can bifocal safety glasses add to your safety and increase your productivity? Here’s five tried-and-true examples.

#1: Industrial Jobs – Do you work in an industrial setting, such as in a plant or factory? If so, you know how vital it is to stay on track and on time – and even contribute to increasing that time. You simply don’t have time to keep switching from your regular ol’ safety glasses to your prescription bifocal glasses. Not only that, you can’t risk a harmful particle flying up into your eye in those few seconds when you remove your safety glasses. Play it safe, and even increase your productivity with all-in-one bifocal safety glasses, like our Edge Zorge Bifocal Safety Glasses.

#2: Medical Fields – The same theory holds behind those working in a medical field – it’s crucial that you keep your eyes on the task at hand and ensure that the environment remains sterile. Switching from your safety glasses to your bifocal glasses can compromise a sterile environment, and also contribute to a loss in focus. You simply can’t risk either, and bifocal safety glasses are designed to keep you and your medical expertise in tip-top form.

#3: Athletic Sports – Whether you’re an Olympic-class athlete or just starting out on the junior high field hockey team, you know how crucial Sports Safety Glasses are and the 600,000 sports-related eye injuries per year that they can help thwart. If you’re suffering from vision loss, skip the temptation to simply wear your prescription glasses underneath your safety glasses – that combination could result in glass in your eye should a ball or other athletic object come hurling towards your face. Instead, check out our athletic and oh-so-modern Elvex Go-Specs Bifocal Safety Glasses.

#4: Tech Lab Jobs – If you look at a computer screen for eight or more hours a day, welcome to the lives of our dedicated SafetyGlassesUSA.com website team! But in all seriousness, we all know how viewing a computer screen for long periods of time can diminish our vision. However, if we work in a lab or other hands-on tech industry, we’re often required to wear safety glasses. Wear our 3M Nuvo Reader Bifocal Safety Glasses to ensure you meet the tech lab’s safety requirements, while reducing eye strain.

#5:DIY Life – Doesn’t it seem like there’s an endless list of tasks to take on at home? From cutting the grass to painting the ceiling, you’ve got quite a list, and you’re ready to tackle it head-on. But hold up – if you wear glasses, even reading glasses, you need to ensure your vision is crystal clear during those home makeover tasks. Our PIP Lady Eva Women’s Bifocal Safety Glasses are perfect for the diy ladies out there, and our Pyramex V2 Bifocal Safety Glasses are a comfortable and affordable option for the men of the house.

Aging is meant to be celebrated, with each year bringing new experience and wisdom. We need to extend that wisdom to our vision and choose Bifocal Safety Glasses for a safe and productive take on all of our work and home tasks. 

Eye Injury Misconceptions

Eye injury is one of the most prevalent injuries in the workplace and on the sports field, but it is also the easiest to prevent. The following addresses three of the most common misconceptions related to eye injury as well as solutions to the issues they present.

  1. Safety glasses are not suitable for preventing all types of eye injuries. According to Achieve Safety, safety glasses are best for preventing injuries from particles or objects that come straight towards a person’s eye. In other words, a foreign object can still come in through the sides or perhaps come in under safety glasses and damage the eye.

Wearing the right type of protection for different eye hazards is essential in preventing them. For example, when performing tasks where a foreign object can get in through the sides or bottom of safety glasses, like when using a grinding wheel or rotating wire brushes, wear goggles or perhaps a full face shield plus goggles. The bottom line is to wear the correct gear for the task at hand, and one type of protection does not necessarily work for all circumstances.

  1. Wearing regular sunglasses or eyeglasses will not prevent sports injuries and often can make an injury worse. Eye2Brain says that fashion sunglasses and eyeglasses made for vision correction only do not protect against sports injuries because they are made from different material than protective athletic eyewear. In fact, fashion sunglasses and corrective eyeglasses often make an injury worse or even cause an injury when they shatter from a blunt force and the pieces go into the eye.

Choose the best athletic eyewear for your specific activity. A solution exists for every sport from fishing to baseball to running.

  1. While most people realize the damage the sun can do to skin, many still fail to realize how much the sun can also damage the eyes. In ‘Eye’ didn’t know that: 5 leading misconceptions about eye health, Lisa Rademakers addresses some of the leading misconceptions about eye health, including sun damage. The article states that there are a variety of eye conditions that can be caused by sun exposure, including cataracts and macular degeneration.

To protect eyes, wear sunglasses that protect against UVB and UVA rays. In addition, wearing an amber-colored lens can not only provide added protection but can also increase visibility by increasing contrast and decreasing glare.

While every person has unique needs with regard to protective eyewear, there is no shortage of eyewear to meet every person’s unique needs. From medical safety eye protection to sports eyewear to RX ready safety eyewear, an affordable solution exists to meet every unique situation.

Take the time to analyze your specific needs and where you feel you are most at-risk for eye injury. Then, take the time to find the best solution for avoiding one of the most preventable injuries that people sustain, injury to the eyes.
