Bifocal glasses aren’t just for grandma anymore. Bifocal safety glasses not only keep your eyes protected, but they also come with built-in magnifiers to make reading and detail jobs easier.

More people wear safety glasses today than ever before. Why? Modern designs and technology make them fit better, look better and function better. Fortunately, bifocals weren’t left out of progress.

Bifocal safety glasses are perfect for people who need safety glasses and reading glasses. They’ve really taken off in popularity over the last few years too. Here’s why:

Child with Magnifying Glass

It’s All in the Details

Being detailed is hard work, but it’s easy to spot a bad detail job. Whether painting or woodworking, it pays to pay attention to the details. At the same time, refuse to sacrifice eye safety. With bifocal safety glasses like our DeWalt Reinforcer Bifocal Safety Glasses, you don’t have to. Their impact-resistant lenses give peace of mind, and their magnification lets you carve and paint easier than ever before.

Computer Eye Strain

Tech Savvy Brain without the Strain

You’re all about new technology, but some days leave you staring at a computer screen for hours. Ever notice how tired your eyes feel after a while? What about those headaches that seem to pop up every afternoon? Computers can increase eye strain, but bifocal safety glasses help fight that strain. Not only can the amber lenses in our Uvex Genesis Bifocal Safety Glasses ease eye strain from sitting in front of the PC, but they can also help you read that small print on your favorite blogs without the overwhelming fatigue.

Read the Instructions

Read the Instructions

Tempted to skip the instruction manual, especially when strapped for time? Operating that machine looks simple enough, doesn’t it? Besides, the print for most instructions is too small anyway. Unfortunately, we all know what often happens when we skip the instructions… Murphy’s Law will have us either fixing the equipment or reading the manual eventually anyway. Safety glasses with bifocal lenses make reading the instructions a cinch. No more needing to switch from safety glasses to reading glasses. Plus, you’ll save time and money in the long run.

Doctor Wearing Bifocals

Scalpel? Check. Bifocal Safety Glasses? Huh?

Medical professionals need to see the details. Fast. And we all want them too, right? Bifocal safety glasses not only protect the doctor (or technician or nurse) and the patient from the spread of infection, but they give the magnification needed to quickly spot the problem and read charts. In fact, we think they’re as essential as that prescription pad and pen in every doctor’s lab coat pocket.
