The popularity of transition or photochromic lenses seems to be growing among users of PPE (personal protective equipment) at work. According to a recent study, transition lenses made up 16 percent of total RX glasses sales overall. The importance of having a tint which allows the optimum level of light through itself towards your eye is immense for workers. Most labor-intensive jobs require a fair amount of time to be spent outside in the sun. Thus, there arises a need for protecting your eyes from the glare caused by sunlight. This article discusses how transition lenses contained in 3M Smart Lens are of immense help when it comes to stave off glare & maintaining an aesthetic appearance at the same time on your job.
How Transition Lens Help Your Eyesight
Glare is essentially caused by sunlight bouncing off from flat objects such as roads, ground or mountains, etc. Light rays essentially travel in a scattered pattern. When the very rays are bounced off from objects and straight into our eyes, they cause discomfort. This is primarily due to the dispersed nature of rays which are then supposed to be organized by the lens in our eyes. Furthermore, RX safety eyewear without tints does not possess the ability to tune down the light transmission levels. Prolonged exposure to UV rays can be dangerous as they are a major source of long term eye ailments such as cataracts or macular degeneration.
3M offers you the best in the business as they combine both high-quality durability & protection from UV rays at the same time. Sunglasses are not an option here due to the lack of ANSI Z787.1 certification. The very standard serves as the key differentiator in ensuring the shatter proof durability of the lens against high impact accidents. Conversely, glasses do not provide the same level of durability as Protective Glasses, nor do they provide the vision correction option which for people having problems with their eyesight.
Transition lenses change their colors in the course of a few seconds. This is great if you have to frequently go outside from an indoor work environment. It saves you from the hassle of keeping a separate pair of glasses to wear for protection against UV rays. Thus, 3M offers the versatility that is needed in safety eyewear for varying hazards at the workplace.
