Wearing the correct safety glasses can be beneficial to protecting your eyes. Sometimes when you get a pair of prescription safety glasses you see “ANSI” on the side of them…what does that mean?
ANSI stands for American National Standards Institute. Many safety and sports glasses need to meet a certain standard in order to qualify them as being ANSI approved, such as:
- Shatter proof and impact resistant lenses
- Provide adequate protection against certain type of hazards
- Ability to disinfect if necessary
- Fit securely and comfortably without interfering with movement and vision
