Want a pair of safety glasses that you can use during most lighting conditions?
Prescription Safety Glasses with Transition Lenses
Transitions© brand lenses are extremely versatile. They turn dark in sunlight and clear indoors or out of sunlight. They are great for people who need eyewear for all sorts of conditions, but they’re not for everybody. This article will explain what prescription safety glasses with Transition lenses are good for.
The most important things to know about prescription safety glasses with Transition lenses is that most types of Transitions won’t darken behind the windshield of a car, and people who are sensitive to bright light will need darker lenses for full sunlight than Transitions can accommodate.
If you’re looking for prescription safety glasses with Transition lenses, here’s what you need to know:
- Transitions lenses darken in direct sunlight and clear up out of sunlight. Since UV light is what causes them to darken, most Transitions won’t change behind the windshield of a car.
- Transitions lenses don’t get as dark as polarized gray 3 or polarized brown 3 lenses will, so if you’re sensitive to bright sunlight, Transitions will not be enough for you in full sunlight. This may mean that you need to wear a cap with them, or that you need separate glasses for sunlight.
- Transitions safety glasses are versatile and extremely valuable in their function, and you can find them in virtually any frame type and prescription on our web site.
- Transitions lenses for safety glasses should generally be made out of polycarbonate to ensure that you get the highest impact resistance.
- Prescription safety glasses with Transition lenses are a great investment for most eyeglasses wearers who need safety glasses on the job, but keep in mind that you’ll need to take care of them. Throwing them in your tool box or wiping them clean while they’re covered in dirt, dust, or sand, will cause them to get scratched up and unusable soon after you get them.
- Anti-reflective coating is not a good choice for prescription safety glasses that will be cleaned often, as AR coating tends to scratch easily when wiped clean with anything other than a microfiber cloth. Any dust or debris on the lenses will scratch them when wiped clean with AR coating, so the lenses will need to be rinsed when they’re coated with debris. You’re generally better off without AR coating if you’re working your glasses hard.
If you’re looking for a great all-around pair of prescription safety glasses, prescription safety glasses with Transition lenses are the way to go.
