Stylin? Safety Glasses Are Hot to Look At

What do you think of when you hear the words "safety glasses"? Are you picturing the big clear plastic one size fits all glasses that sort of fit over your eyes? I have a pair of really cheap safety glasses that I only wear when I know no one will see me. They don't fit well and are very uncomfortable. I guess they serve their purpose for keeping debris out of my eyes; but there has to be a more stylish way to go. We're busy and very active people. We have lots of interests and we're involved in all kinds of sports and events. We like to be doing things and we want to look good doing it. There are all kinds of specialty equipment on the market for every interest so why not safety eyewear? According to a Vision Council of America (VCA) survey, the most important reasons for purchasing specialty types of eyewear include:

? Participating in activities such as computer use, work, hobbies, sports or driving.

? Safety features that create an increased enjoyment of sports as well as protection from dust and glare.

? The wearer likes to be different and purchases them for cosmetic reasons.

? The need to see better in general.

Cool safety glasses with designer frames are everywhere. You don't have to settle for the piece of plastic strapped to your face. You can now look like the celebrities with fashion protective eyewear from a host of manufacturers. The average Joe can look like Joe millionaire at work and play. People are spending more time at work than anywhere else these days; so if your job requires safety glasses, be stylin' and safe at the same time. You can also get your prescription filled with most glasses. Some styles only offer a range of corrections and you will be able to see pretty well, but there are companies that offer your precise prescription for your safety eyewear. When your safety glasses fit well and you can see clearly from them, you have just increased your eye protection to the next level and we all know your eyes are worth every penny you spend on them. Who doesn't want to look cool and fashionable on the job? Fashion safety eyewear is also available in goggle styles, with music attached, and in every hot color on the map.

Your sport, hobby or job will dictate what type of safety eyewear is best for you. Do you need bifocals; you can find safety glasses to fit the bill. If glasses for reading is more of what you need for doing small detailed work, you can find levels of correction and magnification in safety glasses too. If you are working with wood, sand or other flying debris then safety is a top priority. You might want one of the more enclosed forms of glasses such as specialty goggles. If you play tennis, golf, or ski, you can benefit from some high tech lenses that increase your accuracy and safety. You can achieve more visual clarity on the slopes or experience safer eyes with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses. Tinted sports safety glasses with colors such as amber, soft yellow, green-grey and rose are also great for golf, tennis and skiing. Don't forget about safety while driving. You may not need the unbreakable lens, but you might need polarized lenses that reduce glare making it much easier to see. Studies have shown that less glare may reduce car accidents. It makes sense because I know how hard it is to see when there is the glare of the sun in your eyes. Special coatings also reduce glare and assist with night vision.

You can find the right frame and lens combination in any color you want. Just pick the style of safety glasses that fits your purpose. Your eyes will be safer and you will be stylin' at the same time.
