For customized safety glasses, there is a wide variety of lenses. We understand that selecting safety lens materials, colors, and coatings can occasionally be confusing, particularly if you’re purchasing prescription safety glasses for the first time. SEG takes great satisfaction in offering well-considered solutions for your workplace. Thus, there’s no reason to worry. To make sure you have all the knowledge you need to choose your Pentax safety glasses wisely, this post will go over the many kinds of lens materials, choice of color, and lens coatings.

There are other considerations to weigh when choosing new eyewear than frame style. After selecting a frame that highlights your features, you should think about the kind of lens that best suits your way of life. Today’s lenses provide greater versatility than ever before, ranging from glare-reducing lenses to styles that shield your eyes while you enjoy your favorite sport.

Are You in Need of Progressives, Bifocals, Trifocals, or Single Vision Lenses?

You must consider the kind of lenses you desire before selecting a lens material. Among the options are: 

Single Vision. You can use single-vision lenses to correct astigmatism, nearsightedness, or farsightedness since they provide the same amount of lens power across the lens. Moreover, they can be utilized as reading glasses in case of presbyopia.

Trifocal and Bifocal lenses. These lenses have two or three regions with a distinct line dividing them. Bifocals, for instance, may have one lens power for near vision and another for far vision. Multiple sets of glasses are not necessary with bifocals and trifocals, although some individuals find the lines to be distracting.

Forward-thinking. Compared to trifocals or bifocals, progressive lenses do not have lines, enabling a smoother transition between lens powers. Think about the substance of your lenses. To accommodate the demands of those who wear prescription safety glasses, SEG Safety provides a range of lenses. We provide high-index, trivex, and polycarbonate lenses. Thus, consider your needs, surroundings, and working situations while choosing a safety lens material. Let’s learn their features.

  • Polycarbonate lenses

The most common option for Pentax prescription safety glasses lenses is polycarbonate. Particularly when contrasted with regular plastic and genuine glass lenses, they are renowned for their exceptional impact resistance and remarkably light properties. Affordability, compliance with ANSI Z87+ High-Velocity requirements, UV protection, and a wide variety of lens alternatives are some positive attributes of polycarbonate lenses.

For Whom Are Polycarbonate Lenses Beneficial? 

Children can safely use polycarbonate lenses because they are impact-resistant and won’t break if dropped. Your eyes will be better protected if you wear safety glasses or add polycarbonate lenses to your spectacles if you are employed in construction, other dangerous jobs, or doing home improvement tasks. Pentax safety frames with polycarbonate lenses lower the chance of eye injury. In addition, polycarbonate lenses are a great choice for those who like thin lenses for their glasses.

  • Safety Lenses Trivex

Polycarbonate lenses and Trivex share features such as weight, resilience, and UV protection. Trivex lenses are different from polycarbonate lenses in that they provide greater clarity through less distortion and a sharper lens. They also fulfill ANSI Z87+ High-Velocity requirements and offer outstanding scratch resistance. Polarized, Transition, and safety eyewear lens types are offered by Trivex.

Who Qualifies for Trivex Lens Benefits?

Without the heaviness of polycarbonate or plastic lenses, Trivex lenses offer excellent vision, making them perfect for sports, fine detail work, or reading. If you require good side vision for driving or other tasks, Trivex glasses are worth considering because of their enhanced side peripheral vision.

  • High-index protective lenses

For those with high prescription costs, high-index safety glasses are the best option. High prescriptions can accommodate without the need for extra-thick lenses thanks to the higher index of these lenses compared to the other lens materials. High-index lenses are only advised for patients whose prescriptions are more than +/- 4.00. Compared to other materials, these lenses are available in fewer lens variants and satisfy the ANSI Z87.1 Quality Standards. For optimal results, we advise applying an anti-reflective coating to high-index lenses.

Who Can Advantages from HD Lenses?

Do you get eyestrain or blurred vision? For those with heavy prescriptions, HD lenses provide better vision and may even lessen eyestrain. Additionally, the lenses remove starbursts or halos surrounding lights, improve nighttime driving comfort, and shorten the time it takes to adapt progressive lenses.

  • Do You Need Plastic Lenses?

Columbia Resin 39 (CR-39), a lightweight, break-resistant plastic polymer, is used to make plastic lenses. If your prescription calls for thick lenses due to a high (strong) index, high-index plastic lenses can be an appropriate option. The lenses suit your spectacles better and are slimmer than usual.

Advantages of Plastic Lenses

For most people, plastic lenses are a good option. The least expensive options are the lenses, which are perfect for reading, driving, engaging in hobbies, using digital gadgets, and other regular activities.

Other Lens Options

Additionally, you can pick specialty lenses or add coatings to your lenses. It is possible to apply coatings to lessen glare, stop blue light, and stop scratching. If you get eye fatigue while working on your laptop or desktop, computer glasses can be a suitable choice. The glasses lessen glare, lessen symptoms of eyestrain, and offer good vision in the zone between close and far vision.

Even though the majority of 3m Pentax safety eyeglass lenses completely block UV rays, it’s still crucial to wear sunglasses outside. You can lower your risk of cataracts and cancer by using regular shade lenses or photochromic lenses, which lighten indoors and darken outdoors. Reduced glare from polarized sunglass lenses makes you more comfortable whether you’re driving or just enjoying the day.

Colors of Safety Glasses Lenses

Pentax safety glasses can look even better with different lens colors. Every color can serve a distinct function, whether it is for aesthetics or ergonomics. If you work outside, you might want to think about getting sunglasses with darker tints or polarized lenses to help shield your eyes from the sun’s UV rays. You can lessen glare and alleviate sun-induced eye strain with these lenses.
