How do I know which lens is best for my intended use?

Many of our glasses and goggles come with different lens options. Generally clear is the most popular but we have a dedicated page that gives advice on the intended used. Click here to visit the lens advice section.

I have a problem with lenses fogging up. Can you help?

Lenses mist up for three reasons. 1) Not enough ventilation between the eye and the glasses. To solve this try wearing the glasses not so close to the face, slide them down the nose maybe just a few mm. It makes a big difference. 2) There is a difference in temperature between the air, the glasses and the users face. This problem will fix itself after about 15 minutes but you can minimise the problem by wearing the glasses on your head or in a pocket first to warm them up to your body temperature. 3) Sweaty skin. There is no real solution to this. Some people produce more sweat than others and it will cause problems for safety glasses. Ideally buy the best venting pair you can find and try to use run on anti-perspirant. .

If you are the only one using the glasses then you can resort to the Scuba Diving method. Spit on the inside of your lenses and rub it in. Then rinse very briefly. Allow them to dry naturally. Your own saliva is one of the best anti-mist solutions available.

How do I know if the safety glasses will fit my face?

All of our products are designed to fit most faces however some models are designed to be especially accommodating or adjustable. Cover specs for example are generally designed to fit any face and can even be worn over the top of other spectacles.
