How to make your prescription glasses last as long as possible?
The use of eye protection equipment in work where eye hazards are present makes eye protection goggles a faithful companion in the workplace.
In the case of prescription safety spectacles, they comply with two premises: to ensure adequate protection and to correct visual defects, thus avoiding the uncomfortable use of over-goggles.
Given that prescription safety spectacles can accompany us throughout the working day and to ensure their effectiveness and durability, it is very important to carry out adequate maintenance and thus extend their useful life.
Maintenance of prescription safety spectacles
First of all, let’s take a look at the benefits of proper cleaning and maintenance of our prescription safety glasses:
Clean and clear vision: keeping lenses free of dirt, dust, particles and debris will allow for clear and unobstructed vision, making it easier to carry out work, especially those that require more attention and precision.
Extend the life of my glasses: maintenance and cleaning is vital to avoid early deterioration of materials and to stay safe for longer.
Wearing comfort: A well-maintained and undamaged protective spectacle provides comfort over a long period of time.
Here are some tips to help you prolong the life of your prescription safety spectacles.
First of all, we advise you to have a good treatment applied to the surface of the lenses in order to extend their lifespan depending on the conditions of your workplace: There are several types of treatments available:
Anti-scratch treatment: Applied to the lens, it makes it 3 times more resistant to abrasion. It is a highly recommended treatment in all working environments.
Anti-Reflective Treatment: Avoids annoying reflections and allows a clearer vision as well as making the lens 3 times more resistant to scratching.
Anti-Fog Treatment: Treatment designed to prevent fogging of the lens, allowing a clear and transparent vision.
Water repellent treatment: Water repellent, 3 times more resistant to scratches and dirt.
Secondly, we recommend a good maintenance of the glasses. In this regard, we advise you:
Water and mild soap, your best allies!
During the working day, small particles of dust or similar may be deposited on the surface of the lenses (especially in dusty work environments). Rubbing the lenses dry, without first removing the particles, can scratch the surface of the lenses and compromise not only the field of vision but also damage specific lens treatments such as anti-reflective or anti-fogging, reducing their effectiveness.
First, place the prescription goggles under running warm water (avoid hot water). This will help to remove dust and other particles deposited on the surface. Using mild soap and circular movements with your fingertips, clean the entire surface of your prescription safety spectacles. Finish cleaning by removing all the soap with water and dry the spectacles with the help of clean absorbent paper using light pressure until they are completely dry.
Avoid aggressive cleaning products
The materials that make up your prescription goggles are susceptible to interaction with some chemicals and corrosives, so ALWAYS avoid using cleaning products that you do not know the composition of or are based on alcohols, acetones or granulates. The use of these products will degrade the materials and compromise the effectiveness of your prescription goggles, as well as your safety.
Store glasses in a safety case
When you are not wearing your prescription safety spectacles, always keep them in their protective case to avoid damage and loss. Avoid exposing your prescription safety spectacles to direct light sources and temperature extremes and always keep them clean in a cool, dry environment.
Your safety first!
It is vitally important to check your prescription goggles thoroughly before each use.
Eye protectors are designed to provide safety and are certified to fulfill their protective function as long as they are kept clean and properly maintained by the worker and put to the specific use for which they are designed.
The lifespan of prescription glasses depends to a large extent on the use and maintenance to which they are subjected. Therefore, proper maintenance will considerably extend the life of your glasses.
Always clean your protective eyewear when the eye hazard is not present. If you need to clean, move away from the hazard before you start. Your safety first.
Always keep the case provided with the eye protection glasses at hand for proper care and maintenance. Always read the instructions for use for proper maintenance and care of your protective eyewear and always consult the manufacturer for more information about your prescription protective eyewear.
