Encon Veratti LS7 Safety Glasses with Pink Frame and Clear Lens

Roses, diamonds, and pearls may be known as a girl’s best friend come February 14th, but it’s time to surprise her with a gift that truly shows you care for her – and her vision: Women’s Safety Glasses! Sure, they may not shine, but our oh-so girly and tough (just like her!) safety glasses feature comfortable designs with attractive frames, such as our pink framed and gray lensed Encon Veratti Safety Glasses. Oh and guys – be sure to pair them with a bouquet of roses and some chocolate morsels, it is still Valentine’s Day, after all.

She may ask why she needs to wear women’s safety glasses, so we’ve got the handy dandy women’s eye safety stats right here for you to impress her with:

  • According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, 44.7% of eye injuries occur at home. So, even if she doesn’t work in an industrial or laboratory setting where safety glasses are the norm, she can still reap the benefits of eye safety in every day home tasks.
  • In fact, the American Academy of Ophthalmology also reports that 40% of eye injuries were caused by common projects and activities – many of which you would never expect to be eye safety risks. These include home repairs, yard work, cleaning, and cooking.
  • Does she love to spend time in the sun, whether playing sports or simply enjoying a good book? She already knows she needs to lather up on the sunscreen, but eyes can also be irreversibly damaged by the sun. Our chic (yes, we said chic) tortoise shell framed and espresso lensed Uvex W300 Series Safety Glasses are stylish and meet ANSI Z87+ high impact standards. We think they’ll complement those pearl earrings you got her quite nicely!
  • If she’s a sports enthusiast, there’s no better time to ensure she’s wearing safety glasses than right now. 40% of all eye injuries are sports-related, with sports like lacrosse being even more eye injury prone – 125 eye injuries were reported by 84 players in the National Center for Biotechnology Information’s 2002 study. Our light pink framed and gray lensed Pyramex Achieva Safety Glasses are made for the active girl in your life, as they feature rubber temple tips for a secure fit, even while playing her hardest on the field.

These are just a handful of reasons why Women’s Safety Glasses are essential in everyday life – even if she isn’t required to wear them at work. Valentine’s Day may be just a tad commercialized, but at the core of it, it’s a day to show how much you love and care for her. Safety glasses may not be the most conventional Valentine’s Day gift, but they do show her how deeply she and her safety mean to you. Just remember our tip about pairing them with roses and truffles!

The Top 5 Most Unlikely Holiday Eye Safety Risks

Christmas DecorationsWe’ve heard it all here at SafetyGlassesUSA.com – from getting a little too close to those Christmas tree branches to holiday lights popping as you peer at them. So what does trimming the tree and uncorking that champagne bottle have in common? They’re part of our top 5 unlikely holiday eye safety risks that really can happen, even to you. We know that even the most avid of Safety Glasses enthusiasts won’t be wearing safety glasses to that holiday party, but we’re here to help you identify eye safety risks this holiday season to keep you safe through the New Year.

#5 Most Unlikely Eye Safety Risk: Sharp-Edged Toys

Before you gift that doll beach house or remote control car to your little ones, be sure to unpack it and look for any sharp edges in the toy or its accessories. You’d be surprised how many eye injuries occur on Christmas Day when children are just so excited to play with their new toys. If you do spy an eye injury waiting to happen, choose an alternate gift, or ensure your child is wearing Kids Safety Glasses.

#4 Most Unlikely Eye Safety Risk: Colliding with the Mistletoe

The mistletoe is purposefully meant to sneak up on us, but sometimes a bit too much – and right in the eye! Those of us on the shorter side are in luck, but for the tall guys and gals among us, keep an eye out for that lovely mistletoe as you duck under the doorframe.

#3 Most Unlikely Eye Safety Risk: Christmas Lights Breaking

Christmas lights are chock-full of eye safety risks, with one of the most prevalent being lights ‘popping’ due to prolonged use over the years. This happens all too often when mounting and dismounting lights, and as we know all too well, the smallest of glass shards can negatively affect your vision forever. Be sure safety glasses are covering your peepers when working with holiday lights this season!

#2 Most Unlikely Eye Safety Risk: Christmas Tree Branches

How often do you reach close into your tree to water it or put a new ornament on it? Chances are quite a bit during the holidays, with those branches then coming dangerously close to your eyes. We hope you wear safety glasses while putting ornaments on your tree, but at the very least, take care to pay attention to looming tree branches as you trim and water trim.

#1 Most Unlikely Eye Safety Risk: Popping the Champagne

New Year’s Eve and champagne go hand in hand, but so do champagne bottle corks and eye injuries. This year, uncork your bottle of champagne the right way – with a hand towel over it to ensure the cork doesn’t fly. Sure, it’s not as flashy as champagne flying across the room, but sending a party guest to the emergency room isn’t exactly a party memory you want. Stick to safe champagne uncorking for a healthy and happy New Year’s celebration.

We hope we’ve uncovered your eyes to some of the most unlikely eye safety risks during the holiday season. Keep a pair of Safety Glasses on hand as often as possible, and exercise thinking safely as you enjoy your holiday season. Happy holidays from all of us at SafetyGlassesUSA.com!
