Reasons why wearing sunglasses at work is vital
The side effects of being exposed to the sun without eye protection are not immediately appreciated but accumulate over time and cause retinal burns, photoretinitis, photo-keratitis, photo-conjunctivitis and induce the appearance of cataracts. The WHO warns that approximately 18 million people worldwide are blinded by cataracts that can be attributed to exposure to ultraviolet radiation. This is reduced with the use of protective glasses, and may even make these effects disappear completely. Our sun protection glasses are classified as PPE of different categories, but always certified with the EN166 and EN172 regulations.
What is the indicated use for each category of sunscreen
Knowing and knowing how to interpret the filter category of a sunglasses is one of the most important things when choosing. When we buy a sunglasses it is always accompanied by a small brochure or marking on the sunglasses that specifies a number from 0 to 4: this is what we call the class or category of sunscreen and indicates its intensity, with 0 being the most light and 4 the darkest. Assigning them a number that allows us to typify them can help us suggest uses and indicate limitations, regardless of what color the lens is. Then we leave you a guideline where the light transmission and the environment indicated for each of the solar lenses are shown.
