Safety Glasses

Keep Your Eyes Safe as You Work, Play

Eye protection is important for sports and for certain occupations. Our Optique Eyewear department has an extensive line of safety goggles and safety glasses to meet the unique vision safety challenges of your job or sporting passion.

Most people think of safety glasses as a must for workers in construction or manufacturing, but they are also important for jobs in fields like auto repair, culinary arts and even desk jobs. The right eyewear can help protect against:

  • Infections
  • Penetration
  • Flying objects
  • Grease splatters
  • Chemicals
  • Radiation
  • Digital eye strain/computer vision syndrome

  • Shamir Office™ computer lenses
  • Sports glasses for various sports
  • Safety goggles
