Introduce the importance of wearing safety goggles, their basic characteristics, the difference between various prescription goggles, and how you should use them.

Our best medical protective glasses

The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) estimates that 2,000 American workers suffer eye injuries at work every day. If the user wears medical protective glasses, many of these injuries can be avoided. Most workers choose to wear prescription goggles because they can prevent flying objects from damaging their eyes. In this article, we will focus on the importance of wearing safety goggles, their basic characteristics, the difference between one type and another, and under what conditions you should use it.

What are medical protective glasses?

Medical protective goggles are prescription goggles that protect the eyes of people wearing safety goggles from harm in a way that is difficult to achieve with safety goggles. The tight-fitting design of prescription goggles combined with its shoulder straps completely isolates them from outside dangers. In the workplace, the fit of prescription goggles means that the wearer has better protection when handling hazardous materials. The first prescription goggles option is designed to prevent basic particles from entering the eyes. The newer design protects users from liquids and gases, and provides an anti-fog coating.

Available types: indirect ventilation and direct ventilation

One way to make medical protective glasses more comfortable is to allow air to circulate through vents. This design helps reduce fogging, prevents moisture accumulation, and allows heat to escape. However, when handling chemicals, steam or mist, another type of goggles without open air vents is required. In order for medical protective glasses to fully protect your eyes, you need to choose goggles designed specifically for the types of dangers you may encounter. The most comfortable prescription goggles are goggles with multiple perforations on the side, called direct ventilation. These goggles allow direct air inflow, which means that fog and heat build-up are no longer a problem with wearing safety goggles. These prescription goggles are best suited for work where impact is significant and does not splash or generate chemical vapors. Higher-quality prescription goggles are indirectly ventilated, which means they are designed without a direct linear channel into the device. Instead, the vent is protected by a cover that allows air to enter, but particles cannot enter. Since air cannot pass freely like direct ventilation, fog becomes more worrying. You will find most indirect ventilation goggles equipped with anti-fog technology.

All of EK's medical protective glasses have passed safety certification, which means that they have passed high-impact standards. In order to meet the certification requirements for wearing safety goggles, the goggles must be able to withstand a 0.25-inch steel ball advancing at a speed of 250 feet per second without breaking. Our laboratory testing facilities often randomly take samples of prescription goggles from our factory's product operations and conduct impact tests on them to ensure that our products function when needed.
