Where to Find Safety Glasses with Built-in Reading Magnification

If you wear prescription reading glasses for focusing on print or performing close-in tasks, it’s likely that you have multiple pairs. You may keep them in different rooms of your house or have one specifically for work. It’s no surprise since these glasses are readily available in drug stores, supermarkets, and department stores. They come in various magnification strengths commonly used and serve as affordable alternatives to bifocals.

While standard prescription readers are useful for their intended purpose, they lack the ability to provide adequate eye protection in hazardous environments. If your work or leisure activities involve the risk of eye injuries from accidents, flying debris, sparks, sawdust, wind-blown particles, or any other potential hazards, it is crucial to wear approved safety glasses. However, you may have noticed that outlets offering standard reading glasses do not carry safety reading glasses to address these specific needs.
