Safety glasses, are forms of protective eyewear that usually enclose or protect the area surrounding the eye in order to prevent particulates, water or chemicals from striking the eyes. They are used in chemistry laboratories and in woodworking. They are often used in snow sports as well, and in swimming. Safety Glasses are often worn when using power tools such as drills or chainsaws to prevent flying particles from damaging the eyes. Many types of safety glasses are available as prescription goggles for those with vision problems.
Safety glasses are a type of personal protective equipment (PPE) that is worn on the eye for its protection. Essentially, safety glasses fit tightly to the eye, often with suction, and are secured with a strap that goes around the back of the head. Safety glasses may be used to protect the eye against particles, chemicals, water, glare and from things striking the eyes.
