Clear Safety Glasses are the most widely used type of safety glasses. Utilising clear lenses which provide maximum light transmission, Clear Safety Glasses are able to be used in all lighting conditions including indoors, outdoors and in low light environments. The ability for Clear Safety Glasses to be used in all lighting conditions makes them extremely versatile and a great choice for eye protection in a wide range of work environments. Clear Safety Glasses are designed to protect workers from:
1. Low Velocity Flying Fragments caused by hammering; handling wire, rocks, bricks and cement; manual chipping; riveting; and grinding powders in a chemical laboratory; and
2. Medium Velocity Flying Objects caused by cutting & grinding materials; wood working; machining metals; and cutting bricks.
Clear Safety Glasses also provide some protection from liquid splashes, however it’s recommended that splash certified safety goggles should be worn.

Whilst Clear Safety Glasses are extremely versatile and can be used in a wide range of industries and work environments, it is important that employers and employees select the best Clear Safety Glasses for the job at hand and to protect eyes from onsite risks and hazards present in the working environment. We have outlined below some of the key features and considerations for selecting the best Clear Safety Glasses.
Clear Safety Glasses can be used indoors, outdoors and in low light environments. Whilst Clear Safety Glasses can be used outdoors, they are not suitable for bright sunny conditions. Rather, Safety Sunglasses should be used for daytime eye protection outdoors as they are designed to dim sunlight and reduce eye watering, squinting and excessive blinking, caused by bright sunlight.
Many Clear Safety Glasses are supplied with a UV400 coating to protect eyes from harmful ultraviolet UVA and UVB rays. All Bolle and UVEX Clear Safety Glasses are supplied with a UV400 coating as standard, so you can rest assured that eyes are protected from not only the visible onsite hazards and risks, but also UV radiation.
Ultralight, sporty frames, and wraparound frames are an extremely popular choice for Clear Safety Glasses today because they combine style with all-day comfort and protection. Wrap around designs also allow for a much larger field of vision and side protection.
We have Clear Safety Glasses available in different frame colours. You can also opt for customised Clear Safety Glasses with your own corporate branding to achieve brand recognition. Features that enhance comfort include lightweight frames, non-slip soft nose pads and temple tips, adjustable nose pads/bridges and ergonomic temples. Safety features to consider include frames that incorporate brow bar protection (closes the top gap between the Clear Safety Glasses and face), head straps to keep the Clear Safety Glasses in place, and removable gaskets which seal around the eyes for extra protection in dusty environments (see Positive Seal Foam Insert Safety Glasses)
Clear Safety Glasses can be supplied with anti-fog and/or anti-scratch coatings on the clear lenses. Anti-fog and anti-scratch coatings can be applied to one or both sides of the lens. Not all Clear Safety Glasses are supplied with these coatings, so it’s important to look at the lens technology section on the product page.
Anti-fog coatings are designed to reduce the fogging of lenses. Fogging of lenses usually occurs:
For workers working in any of these situations or environments, it’s imperative for them to have an anti-fog coating as this reduces the need for workers to constantly take their Clear Safety Glasses off to wipe off fog, which un-intentionally exposes their eyes to onsite hazards.
Anti-scratch coatings are designed to make Clear Safety Glasses lenses more resistant to scratching and are permanently applied to the lenses during the manufacturing process. Lenses are less susceptible to dirt and easier to clean. This enables them to stay clearer for longer and extend the useful life of the Clear Safety Glasses.
All new Bolle Safety Glasses and selected legacy models come with Bolle’s Platinum Coating which is an anti-fog and anti-scratch coating applied to both sides of the lens.
UVEX Safety Glasses can be supplied with a variety of different lens coatings depending on the work environments abrasiveness and humidity.
With UVEX Safety Glasses, there is a choice from a range of lens coatings. Clear Safety Glasses can be supplied with different coatings based on the temperature of the working environment, air humidity, the degree of dirt, and exposure to chemicals. For more info, see the UVEX Safety Glasses page.
Other safety glasses brands such as Eyres, Ugly Fish and Australian Safety Wholesalers also feature various types of anti-fog and anti-scratch coatings.
