Protecting eyes both in and out of the workplace is not only important; it’s often a requirement. Unfortunately, many individuals who must regularly wear reading glasses end up switching between safety eyewear and reading glasses throughout the day.

Not only is this a frustrating and time consuming, but it also presents a significant safety hazard. Making the switch leaves eyes vulnerable to dust, impact, and more and can lead to severe and sight-threatening injury. Fortunately, the potential risk and extreme hassle of switching between safety eyewear and reading glasses can be avoided with bifocal safety eyewear.

Bifocal safety glasses come in diopters (strengths) ranging from +1.00 to +3.00. In addition to providing 99.9% UVA-UVB sun protection and coming in a variety of lens colors, they also have a plethora of other options. Consider the following to help you decide what best fits your situation.

Occupational Safety Glasses – Bifocal safety glasses that provide more than one area on the lens for up-close vision.

LED Bifocal Safety Glasses – Provide hands-free, direct lighting and eliminate the need for inconvenient work lights.

Polarized Bifocal Safety Glasses – Get the benefits of a polarized lens “” improved contrast, reduction in eyestrain and reduced reflection/glare “” and the convenience of bifocal safety glasses.
