Proper protective eyewear can prevent up to 90% of all eye injuries

FIT + FRAME MATTER: PRESCRIPTION SAFETY GLASSES

At Rx Optical, our patients trust us to protect their eyes and support overall health. That’s why we carry the best prescription safety glasses available. We take safety glasses seriously, as we know that the work our patients do when wearing them is important. Proper protective eyewear can prevent up to 90% of all eye injuries, and we are here to help.

When selecting your next pair of prescription safety glasses, make sure to keep the following in mind:

THE RIGHT FIT
Working with a trained professional who makes sure your glasses fit correctly is key. If your prescription safety glasses are either too snug or too loose, you will find yourself struggling with them all day. It’s not safe to have to continually adjust your glasses. The right fit will allow you to not notice them at all, meaning that you can focus on what is important: the work at hand and staying safe. If you find yourself adjusting your glasses throughout the day, it’s time to make an appointment.

THE RIGHT FRAME
Selecting the right frame is so important when it comes to prescription safety glasses. Glasses that are approved to use for protection are tested for high mass impact, durability, and high velocity impact – quite the rigorous tests! Rx Optical offers superior frame selection to make sure your pair of prescription safety glasses are the best frame for you. Our glasses meet both OSHA and ANSI standards, and come in a variety of materials and finishes.

THE RIGHT REPLACEMENT
This may seem obvious, but it is not safe to wear the same pair of prescription safety glasses beyond your doctor’s orders. Regular eye exams to check to make sure your prescription strength is correct and that your frames, lenses, and fit are still on-point is an important step to ensure your eyes are healthy and protected.

With competitive prices and superior frame selection, our team is able to provide the most technically advance safety glasses on the market. Schedule an exam today to find the right frames for you.

Rx Optical Offers BluTech Lenses to Reduce Digital Eye Strain

As the amount of time we spend each day on some type of electronic device continues to rise, so does the amount of strain we put on our eyes. Artificial blue light refers to the light that is emitted from cell phones, tablets, computers, and many other devices. Blue light tells our brains to remain alert and awake, hence why we hear we shouldn’t be on our phones so close to bedtime. The blue light emitted from these devices tells our brains that it is daytime and we should be awake, making it difficult to fall asleep and get rest. Blue light is also hard on the eyes in that it may lead to cumulative damage of retinal cells. Age Related Macular Degeneration, the leading cause of blindness over the age of 50, can be caused by overexposure of blue light.

A solution to the problems associated with blue light, would be to not expose ourselves so much, but how practical is that?

Rx Optical is now offering BluTech lenses, which are designed to reduce the eye strain associated with our digital devices. The lenses filter high energy visible light that can help reduce headaches, eliminate fatigue, allow more restful nights, and eliminate potential damage to your eyes. With the use of BluTech lenses, 93% of visible blue light is blocked, immensely helping the overall strain we put on our eyes on daily basis.
