When it comes to safety glasses and keeping your eyes safe, polycarbonate lenses is definitely your best bet for complete protection.
Polycarbonate was first designed for fighter planes as they offered impact-resistant, clear windows for pilots to see out of without jeopardizing their safety. In the 1970s NASA started using the material for astronauts helmet visors.
In the 1980s consumers were first introduced to polycarbonate lenses as they are found to be up to 10 times more impact-resistant than plastic or glass lenses. They provide greater protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays and are lightweight which makes them much more comfortable on the wearers face.
Polycarbonate lenses are great for children, who have a greater tendency for breaking or dropping their eyeglasses. They are also ideal for people in the military and law enforcement.
That is why they are standard on the Optx 20/20 Eyedefend CrossTrain Military Ballistic Shield with anti-reflective coating. This safety shield is ergonomically designed and battle field tested which means they will keep your eyes safe in the most dangerous of conditions!
Your eyes are one of the most important parts of your body. Take care of them by protecting them with the materials that will keep them safe!
