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. 

Make Eye Safety Your Goal During Sports Injury Prevention Month

Children's Safety Glasses

The kids are back in school, signaling an end to the lazy days of summer and the start of school sports events. With obesity rates rising, it’s more important than ever to encourage kids to stay active and play a team sport. Yet, September reminds us of the need to also ensure our children wear Sports Safety Glasses – after all, it’s Sports Injury Prevention Month. With the National Health Interview Study reporting that 84.6% of children do not wear adequate kid’s safety glasses, protecting our children’s vision is absolutely imperative during school sports.

We can’t think of a school sport that wouldn’t be safer wearing safety glasses – even golf comes with inherent dangers in being hit by errant ball or sand flying up when trying to hit that ball out of a sand trap. In fact, 600,000 sports-related eye injuries occur each year, with the Prevent Blindness America organization finding that 90% of those eye injuries could be prevented with appropriate sports safety glasses.

Here’s our tried and true ways to encourage your child to wear protective eyewear:

  1. Parents, take the initiative. In most cases, your child is going to look to you to when it comes to purchasing kid’s safety glasses. You’ll need to only spend a few minutes in our Children’s Safety Glasses section to find effective and affordable safety glasses for your child.
  2. But let your child choose. What’s the secret to ensuring your child actually wears the safety glasses you purchased for him or her? Let your kid choose their favorite! We have stylish Pink Kid’s Safety Glasses for the girls and Smoke Lens Safety Glasses for the boys, just two styles among all the ANSI Z87.1 certified children’s safety glasses in our collection.
  3. Spread the word. As you chat with other parents at your child’s sports games, talk to them about the importance of eye safety during Sports Injury Prevention Month, and all year round. We bet they’ll want to make sure their kids stay safe too – and the more kids on the playing field wearing sports safety glasses, the more likely your child will be to wear them.

Whether your child is in a high eye-risk sport like basketball, baseball, softball, or lacrosse, or a moderate-risk sport like water polo, boxing, or martial arts, it’s important that you make sure your child has the appropriate children’s safety glasses. As parents, we worry about the safety of our kids and all the unknown risks of modern life. By choosing Sport’s Safety Glasses, you can finally prevent a known safety risk for your child.
