For those who work in dangerous environments like chem labs, auto repair shops, sawmills, or construction sites, maintaining clear vision is vital to workplace safety. Most commonly, polycarbonate safety glasses are used to maintain optimum vision by shielding the eyes from dust, debris, and harmful chemicals. In order to keep protective eyewear in the best condition possible, it’s important to keep them clean by using top-quality lens cleaning wipes and avoiding damaging alternatives.
Mistakes to Avoid When Caring for Your Safety Glasses
Failing to Establish a Daily Cleaning Routine
Wearing safety glasses for hours on end without cleaning them can often lead to blurry and/or distorted vision. Unfortunately, straining, irritating, and infecting your eyes isn’t all this can lead to. The smudges, dirt, grit, and grease that gets stuck on lenses can also compromise their quality. To get the most out of safety glasses while reducing you’re risk of eye injuries, it’s crucial to establish a daily cleaning routine.
Using the Wrong Cleaning Materials
Wiping them off with a paper towel, shirt, or dirty rag poses serious risks of scratching lenses. Likewise, cleaning protective eyewear with household cleaning products that contain harsh chemicals can also cause damage to lens coatings. Don’t be that guy who just uses whatever is lying around! (Unless it happens to be Nano Magic, of course.) At the end of the workday, be sure to eliminate heavy dirt first by rinsing them under cool water. Then, use a lens cleaning solution to keep them spotless and a soft microfiber cloth to dry them.
