Honeywell tips could avoid 90% of eye injuries

January 17th, 2018 in News and Views by

More than 90% of all eye injuries could be avoided by wearing the proper eye protection says Honeywell. In the majority of eye injuries at home or work no eye protection was worn at all, or the wrong type was used for the hazard.

Look beyond basic protection by following these tips from Honeywell, the world’s top-selling protective eyewear brand, to encourage proper safety eyewear use – on the job or at home.

Choose Great Styles

Attractive styling supports consistent wear. Find modern, lightweight options such as wraparound frames, floating lenses or sophisticated metal frames.

Find a Comfortable Fit

If they feel good, you’re more like to wear them.  Try on eyewear that delivers snug, gap-free coverage through innovative adjustment and comfort features.

Opt for Advanced Anti-fog Performance

Fogging is the number one problem faced by safety eyewear users. Look for advanced anti-fog lens coatings that deliver proven long-lasting and consistent performance.

Block Harmful Light

The effects of optical radiation range from short-term injuries to permanent blindness. Look for lens tints designed for the specific application. Clear, gray, brown or mirrored lens tints offer suitable protection in many environments, but for extreme or unique lighting applications look for specialized lens tints designed to absorb the harmful wavelengths.
