Prescription Safety Glasses with Photochromic Lenses

One of the most popular eyewear options in recent years is photochromic (otherwise known as transition) lenses. These convenient, versatile lenses feature a molecular coating that alters in the presence of ultraviolet light…in other words, they darken to a comfortable tint when exposed to sunlight, and return to a clear state when no UV light is present.

Photochromic Lenses for Prescription Safety Glasses

The benefits photochromic lenses bring to your regular prescription eyeglasses are substantial. You no longer need two distinct pairs of prescription glasses, one clear and one tinted to handle the sun; a single pair transforms itself to meet the existing light conditions, over and over again without any effort or action on your part.

So why limit this technology only to your off-duty eyewear? If you wear safety glasses on the job, around the house, or for any activity that requires eye protection, having photochromic lenses in your prescription safety glasses can be as beneficial as having them in your standard prescription eyeglasses. Rx Safety has several models available, and here’s a capsule view of some of our popular photochromic prescription safety glasses:
