Prescription Safety Glasses

Prescription safety glasses require that the frame and the lens have the ANSI Z87.1 high impact and high mass impact ratings. Some stores will sell you a Z87.1 lens in a frame that is not safety rated. All Z87.1 rated frame must have a stamp on it, and all Z87.1 lenses must have a monagram.  If they are not stamped and monogrammed, then they are not rated properly.  All of the prescription safety glasses at Eyeglasses.com include a Z87.1 frame, and a Z87.1 lens with a monogram on it. Don't settle for anything less, your eyes are not worth it. We carry a fully selection including Oakley prescription safety glasses, Wiley X prescription safety glasses, and several others. We carry photochromic safety glasses, bifocal safety glasses, and a full range of custom prescription safety lenses to suit every need and every prescription strength.

How To Buy Prescription Safety Glasses

Buying prescription safety glasses online is almost the same as buying regular prescription eyeglasses. You can read our How To Buy Glasses guide, but basically you pick a safety glasses frame, add a lens, choose the "safety lenses" option in the lens wizard, and check out.


Safety Glasses Frames

Prescription safety glasses frames have the ANSI Z87.1 certification. Many stores will sell you a frame without this certification, but on our site, every safety frame will be clearly designated as such.


Safety Glasses Lenses

Prescription safety lenses have a 3mm center thickness. If the frame has an ANSI Z87.1 rating, the lens will also include a monogram.  Rx safety glasses lenses will be "shatterproof", and meet ANSI Z87.1-2010 high velocity and high mass impact standards. We offer the world's widest selection of safety lenses, including polycarbonate, high index, Trivex, photochromic transition, bifocal, and even progressive.


Bifocal Safety Glasses

Bifocal safety glasses are necessary when you have some close work, perhaps reading fine print, but you also want to see things in the distance. The lenses meet all of the safety standards, but are also bifocal lenses.


Progressive Safety Glasses

Progressive prescription safety glasses are necessary when you have some close work, perhaps reading fine print, but you also want to see things in the distance. The lenses meet all of the safety standards, but are also progressive lenses, and are sometimes known as "no-line" bifocals.


Transitions Safety Glasses

Photochromic safety lenses are clear indoors, but when exposed to UV radiation they darken. We only sell the highest quality Transitions safety lenses, because they are the world leaders in photochromic lenses. This is a great choice for people that work both indoors and outdoors.


ANSI Z87.1 Certified: What Does It Mean?

ANSI, is the shortened form of the American National Standards Institute. The Institute is a private, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the safety and health of consumers, by approving and issuing testing standards and guidelines for consumers and workers. These are voluntary standards, and a conformity assessment system , not mandated by the government.
