Stellar prescription safety glasses for construction workers

For starters, we can’t help but talk about the Wiley X series of eyeglasses. Wiley X is one of the most well-known eyewear brands today. While the company started out focusing on military applications, Wiley X creates eyewear for anyone working or playing in harsh conditions. Construction work is certainly one of these applications.

As you can see from our Wiley X collection, these glasses are extremely durable. As an example, we invite you to discover the Wiley X Worksight Contour. This model’s shatter-proof polycarbonate selenite lenses meet some of the most notable impact standards, including ANSI Z87.1-2010 high speed, high mass standards. For you, that means you can be confident that your lenses will protect your eyes from flying debris like dust or sand. Wiley X’s T-Shell lens coating also ensures that your lenses won’t scratch, even in the most extreme environments. And while you don’t necessarily want to throw away your glasses, the Wiley X Worksight Contour can handle some stress in the unlikely event your pair falls off your face.

Wiley X also offers several models that offer an enveloping style with foam seals. For example, take a look at the Wiley X Gravity with RX Rim. This model features the patented Removable Facial Cavity Seal technology, which can block out elements such as wind, light, dust and debris. Your eyes will be protected even if you are moving at high speed. Like the other Wiley X models, this model also features durable lenses and a T-Shell lens coating. You can also check out the Wiley X Tide. Like the Gravity with RX Rim, the Tide contains a wrap-around frame and removable facial cavity seal. This model, like the other Wiley X models, is ANSI certified and contains multi-layered foam, creating extra comfort when you are on the job.

The durability and functionality of the Wiley X glasses are certainly excellent. These glasses can certainly serve you well, whatever your role in the construction industry. But that said, you might still be looking for alternatives. There is certainly no problem with this.

Construction workers looking for prescription safety glasses can certainly opt for a model that has been around for almost a century. This model contains a plastic frame with metal mesh side screens. It is a clean and efficient alternative for all types of construction workers.

In the Rx-Safety store, for example, you will find the RX-75 model of corrective protective eyewear. Simply put, it combines function and form. It is ANSI Z87.1-2003 approved, giving you the peace of mind that this model will sufficiently protect your eyes. Beyond that, however, the RX-75 has a plastic frame that provides a comfortable and secure fit. Metal mesh side guards not only protect your eyes from debris coming in from the side, but they also provide breathability. With the RX-75, you will be well protected and extremely comfortable.

Beyond this classic look, you may be interested in both functionality and design. If so, at Rx-Safety we have a full inventory of new freeform, stylish and protective designs. Essentially, they protect your eyes while being extremely close to non-prescription safety glasses.

As an example, take a look at the RX-456 model of corrective safety glasses. This model is extremely popular for both men and women. Its sleek, free-form design is immediately noticeable. The frame is semi-rimmed and the lenses are mounted in the frame using advanced lens edge technology. The design of the RX-456 is not the only advantage, however. This model is ANSI Z.87.1-2003 approved and contains rubberized arms for a secure and comfortable fit.

Alternatively, design-wise, you might be interested in a pair of standard wrap-around safety glasses. Here we also have your back. Check out the RX-TP198 model of corrective safety glasses. It contains a plastic wrap-around frame made from TR-90 nylon. The model also contains the same durability and functionality specifications as many other models in our store (including ANSI Z87 safety approval). They are now available in transitional lenses, allowing you to see clearly whether you are indoors or outdoors on a sunny day. The anti-fog coating also ensures that your glasses do not fog up in humid and hot environments.

Finally, you might be looking for the best prescription safety glasses that prioritize comfort. As an example, in the Rx-Safety store you can find stellar eyewear containing standard styles with adjustable nose bridges. One of these models is the RX-15011. This model of corrective safety glasses not only contains an adjustable nosepiece, but is also made of high quality TR-90 nylon. Permanent side shields provide extra protection when you are at work, making these glasses stylish, functional and comfortable.

A saddle nose bridge can also provide extra comfort when working on a construction site. Here you should take a look at the RX-600 prescription safety eyewear range. This model has a saddle shaped nose bridge, giving you extra comfort when wearing these glasses for long periods of time. With the saddle nose bridge, the RX-600 is ANSI Z87.1-2003 approved, lightweight, contains permanent side guards and is inexpensive. The frame is available in antique gold or pewter.
