March is Save Your Vision Month

Eye injuries of all types occur at a rate of more than 2,000 per day. In particular, an estimated 1,000 eye injuries occur in American workplaces alone. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) found that almost 70% of the eye injuries studied occurred from falling or flying objects, or sparks striking the eye.

The best ways to prevent injury to the eye is to always wear the appropriate eye protection. To be effective, eyewear must fit properly and be designed to effectively protect workers while they work. It is estimated that over 90% of eye injuries are preventable with the use of proper safety eyewear.  Our office can recommend and fit you with the proper frames and lenses to help prevent serious eye injury.  We recommend Trivex lenses, which have the same strength benefit as polycarbonate to protect the eyes.  Trivex also offers the added benefits of toughness so they don’t scratch as easily, and superior optics for better vision.  Don’t settle for anything less.
