How to prevent eye injuries at work

Four things you can do to prevent eye injuries at work.

  1. Be fully aware of the eye safety danger areas at your work
  2. Eliminate as many hazards before you begin working by adding machine guards and work screens
  3. Wear proper eye protection like safety goggles, glasses, shields and/or masks
  4. Keep your safety eyewear in good condition, clean and fog free. Anytime they become damaged — replace them

Based on a hazard assessment of your work space — you’ll know which type of eye protection to select and wear.face-shield-eye-protection-anti-fog-c-clear

Eye Protection Types:

  • Non-prescription and prescription safety glasses — Most safety glasses  look like normal eyeglasses, but they are designed to provide a significant amount of eye protection. The lenses and frames are much stronger than regular eyeglasses and must meet standards of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). Look for the Z87 mark on the lens or frame of the safety glasses you are looking to purchase.

    Safety glasses should provide eye protection for general working conditions where there may be dust, chips or flying particles and debris. An option is to have side shields and wraparound-style safety glasses preventing all angles of your eyes.

    Safety lenses are available in glass, plastic, polycarbonate or Trivex™ lens material. While all four types must meet or exceed the minimum requirements for protecting your eyes, polycarbonate lenses provide the highest level of protection from impact.The lens/shield on goggles will protect your eyes from chemical splashes and ocular exposure to bloodborne pathogens.

  • Goggles — Goggles provide impact, and protection from dust and chemical splashes. Like safety glasses, safety goggles are highly impact resistant. In addition, they provide a secure shield around the entire eye and protect against hazards flying in from any direction.Goggles can be easily worn over your prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses providing protection from flying objects, chemical splashes, and loose dust and debris.
  • Face shields and helmets — Full face shields are used to protect workers exposed to chemicals, heat, or bloodborne pathogens. Helmets are used for welding or working with molten materials. Face shields and helmets should not be worn alone as the single protective eyewear. They need to be worn over safety glasses or goggles. Wearing safety glasses or goggles under face shields also provides protection when the shield is lifted.
  • Special protection — Other types of protection, such as helmets or goggles with special filters to protect the eyes from optical radiation exposure, should be used for tasks such as welding or working with lasers.

One way to ensure that your safety glasses provide adequate protection is to be sure they fit properly. Also, eye protection devices must be properly maintained. Scratched, dirty or fogged up eye protection may reduce your vision and cause uneccessary glares that may contribute to accidents on the job.Eye protection on the job - C-Clear prevents fogging

Protective eyewear works best when you know how to use it properly. Combined with machine guards, screened or divided work stations, and other engineering controls, using the correct protective eyewear can help keep you safe from any type of eye hazard.

Paintball Battlefield Clear Vision with C-Clear Anti Fog

One of the most important things on a paintball battlefield – CLEAR VISION.

Nearly every paintball player has experienced fogging at one time or another. Fogging up paintball goggles or masks is not uncommon and can happen to some of the highest quality paintball lenses on the market.

High quality dual-pane lenses can loose their seal, thus, the air between the two panes is no longer different from the air closest to your face. When your body temperature rises your face begins to perspire, changing the air closest to your face from the outside air of your goggles or mask, therefore fog starts to build.

Great “fog” example:

If you take an ice cube out of the freezer and set it on the kitchen counter, it will start to melt (unless you have an extremely cold kitchen). The reason the ice cube begins to melt because the thermal energy from the air flows into the ice cube. The reason this happens is because heat always flows from things with a higher temperature to things with a lower temperature, until they are the same temperature, a state known as “equilibrium.”

C-Clear has been TESTED on paintball battlefields world-wide. We ship C-Clear all over the world to paintball players that are beginners to entire professional paintball teams. If you’re not sure if C-Clear will work for you — don’t worry — C-Clear offers a 100% money back guarantee.

True Story

A triathlete used an anti fog solution on his swim goggles that nearly blinded him for life. Near the end of his swim the swimmer’s goggles began to fill up with water, causing the anti fog solution to wear off and float into his eyes. He barely made it to shore with eyes slightly open. Once on shore, he removed his goggles, tried to open his eyes but couldn’t so he poured water over his face and eyes. With the assistance of medics on the beach, they tried flushing his eyes with fresh water and eye wash. Nothing would work. He eventually was rushed to Emergency Care. There it took nearly an hour before he could slightly open his eyes. Over several hours his eyes opened a bit more, enough for the doctor to diagnose him as having severe chemical burns to his corneas. Sadly, he couldn’t return to finish his triathlon that day, but after a week under medical care and treatment, he was able to return to work and a couple of weeks back to swimming.

CAUTION: Read all labels very carefully, and ask questions if you’re not sure about an anti fog product. Best bet — read trustworthy customer reviews, and feedback.
