According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) it is estimated that approximately 2000 people in the United States alone require emergency medical treatment for eye injuries. This number isn’t per week, per month or per year, it is per day. Wearing safety glasses would significantly reduce these injuries since the majority is caused by particles or objects hitting and scratching the eye. They can include metal slivers, wood, dust, cement pieces that can actually penetrate and lodge in the tissue, sometimes resulting in a permanent loss of vision in the eye.
Wearing safety glasses should be habit that ตัดแว่นที่ไหนดี anyone working with any type of tool, spray, sharp object or equipment automatically develops. There are many, many different styles of glasses to consider and you don’t need to go to the extremes if you aren’t working in a high risk workplace. However, it is important to use safety approved glasses, not just sun, prescription or reading glasses. While these do offer protection from objects coming straight at the eye they provide no protection from objects potentially striking the eye from the top, bottom or side.
Safety glasses can look like aviator glasses or they can be more like a wraparound type of look. They have thicker, stronger arms than standard glasses and they need to be worn closer to the eye, protecting the bottom and top of the eye from objects and particles that could be shot from a grinder, saw, chisel or even by a sander or router type of tool. Unlike traditional glasses they also don’t typically have the nose pieces, rather they have a universal nose bridge to cover the corner of the eye as well as provide less pressure on the nose for increased comfort.
There are tinted glasses if you don’t want to go with a clear lens. These are a great idea if you work outside or find that the glare from fluorescent type lights is too bright when you are working. As with the clear lens, the lens itself is scratch resistant, ensuring that the glasses can be used for a long period of time without need for replacement. For those who already wear glasses, models that slide over your current glasses to provide much more comprehensive protection are available.
