Non-Prescription Safety Glasses Lenses
Eyres offer a wide range of lens tints in their non-prescription safety glasses range allowing the wearer to choose a lens tint to suit the environment they operate in.
Non-polarised sunglass lenses: Provide protection from strong sunlight, providing natural vision for outdoor wear. These are extremely versatile lenses for outdoor activities.
Polarised lenses: These lenses are designed to cut out glare, especially in and around water environments. Specific colour tints can be used to increase performance in specific lighting conditions.
Low light-lenses: Best suited for low-light environments.
QUICK TIP: Businesses and wearers should consider the lighting conditions where the wearer will be wearing the Eyres safety glasses and select a lens tint appropriate for such application. For example, a worker working outside all day long in bright sunny conditions should select a non-polarised or polarised lens, but not a low light lens.
Prescription Safety Glasses
The combination of tough, durable and stylish frames from Eyres, combined with advanced lens technology developed by Shamir, brings the perfect solution for prescription safety glasses and eye protection. Eyres offer an array of prescription safety eyewear, which vary in features for workplace, sport and leisure applications.
Eyres prescription safety glasses frames
Eyres offer a wide range of prescription safety glasses in different shapes, styles and colours. All are designed with safety as a priority and can accommodate a wide variety of prescription.
Eyres prescription safety glasses lenses
The versatile prescription lens range allows the wearer to choose a prescription lens and lens tint to suit the environment they operate in. The wearer’s prescription and working environment ultimately determines the correct lens choice.
Shamir lenses can be supplied in two types of lens materials, (1) Polycarbonate or (2) Shamir DLCTM (Trivex).
Polycarbonate lenses: For years, polycarbonate lenses have been the industry standard for prescription safety glasses as they are durable, lightweight impact resistant and provide 99% UV protection. These, high index lenses reduce lens thickness for greater comfort and polycarbonate lenses are a good choice for impact resistance.
Shamir DLCTM (Trivex): Trivex lenses are ideal for demanding environments, sports, or for general every day protection against life’s surprises and offer 99% UV protection against the sun’s harmful rays.
Shamir safety prescription lenses can be supplied with a variety of different lens coatings. These coatings are designed to improve anti-reflection to minimise glare and manage light in different environments.
Untinted: Provides superior visual clarity with maximum light transmittance while blocking out 99.9% of UV.
Tinted: Protects against glare, improves contrast and enhances depth perception.
Polarised: Neutralises glare to help the wearer see more clearly and helps reduce the harmful effects of UV light.
Photochromic lenses: Seamlessly adjust to changing light conditions ensuring clear and unhampered vision.
Shamir Glacier Safety: Provides improved anti-reflection properties to minimise glare with a natural look. It helps to repel dust, water and enhances stain resistance to protect lenses from damage during day-to-day use.
Standard Compliance and Certification
Eyres guarantee independent product compliance by certifying products through SAI Global. The main standards relevant to supply of eye protectors in Australia are 1337.1, for plano eye protectors and, 1337.6 for prescription eye protectors. These standards are written with the assistance of industry leaders and experts to provide a set of minimum performance requirements. In line with these standards, Eyres certification accounts for impact resistance, lens transmittance and optical qualities, coverage and overall quality of the eye protectors.
When choosing eye protectors, it’s important to consider whether the product is compliant or certified. This helps to inform whether the product meets the required standards, and acts to support the safety, reliability and consistency of the product in performing in the way that it intended to.
Q. What is certified versus compliant?
Compliant eye protectors are tested once to determine that they meet the requirements of a standard. There is no guarantee that future batches or products of the same type also comply to the standard.
Certified products by contrast, undergo initial assessment to compliance, are registered with an independent certifying body (e.g. SAI Global) and additional batch testing and assessment occurs to ensure the product continues to meet the needs specified in the standard. Buying a certified product guarantees:
1. Ongoing compliance guaranteed
2. Batch testing
3. All components are traceable
4. Added liability cover
Low Impact and High Impact Protectors
Eyres eye protectors vary in their designs against different levels of impact. These can be classed as low and medium level impact. The level of impact should be accounted for when selecting safety glasses, safety sunglasses, prescription safety glasses and other protective eyewear. Medium impact eye protectors are required on all mine, construction and trade sites.
