Frequently Asked Questions About Safety Glasses

What material are safety glasses made from?

Safety glasses are typically crafted from durable materials like polycarbonate, which is known for its impact resistance. This helps your eyes stay safe from any unexpected bumps or knocks while wearing them.

Are safety glasses bad for your eyes?

Not at all! In fact, safety glasses are designed to protect your eyes from potential hazards. When used correctly, they can greatly reduce the risk of eye injuries in various environments, making them a vital tool for safeguarding your vision.

Can you use Pit Vipers/Oakleys/any glasses as safety glasses?

While these brands offer stylish and functional eyewear, it’s important to note that not all glasses are created equal when it comes to safety standards. To ensure proper eye protection, it’s best to opt for safety glasses specifically designed and tested to meet the required safety regulations.
