Types of Safety Glasses: Features and Fit

Safety glasses or goggles? Unsure what type of safety glasses are best for you? Start with the basics of eye safety: the potential hazards in your work environment affect the level of eye protection you need, ranging from traditional spectacles up to gasketed glasses or goggles. Then factor in fit: well-fitted eyewear should minimize space between the lenses and your face to reduce exposure. Finally, other performance features like lens colors, coating options and more can help enhance your safety—and your style. View all products
