For too long, safety eyewear has been treated as “one size fits all.” But head and face shapes are so different, it’s nearly impossible to find one pair that works for everyone. That’s why finding properly fitting eyewear is so crucial to help reduce injuries and increase compliance.
When choosing eyewear, ask yourself these questions:
Are there gaps on the top, bottom or sides when you run your fingers around the rim of the glasses? Frames should fit close to your face without hitting your eyelashes.
Check your peripheral vision. Do you have a wide enough field of vision? Is your vision obstructed by any part of the eyewear?
Now, move your head side to side and up and down. Do the glasses stay securely on your face? Do they slip down your nose or move at all?
Do you feel pressure behind the ears, sides of your head, or on the bridge of your nose? Frames should fit firmly, but should never rub or pinch.
Can you confidently check all the boxes above? Is the fit perfect? If it’s not, try a different style and go through the process again.
The most important thing when it comes to safety eyewear is to make sure you find the frames that fit you properly.
