Eyes are relatively fragile organs. During some industrial production, eyes are more vulnerable to be hurt. Therefore, during some heavy industrial production, operators are required to wear eye protection goggles. For example, electric welding and oxygen cutting will produce strong light and ultraviolet rays, which are very harmful to our eyes. So we should wear goggle glasses to protect our eyes in daily work, and wear eye protection goggles that suit our face shape when we work.
For most home maintenance projects and activities, standard ANSI approved eye goggles are sufficient. For many workplaces, using the same protection at home is sufficient, but you need to be aware of some important exceptions. Sports eye goggles should meet the specific requirements of sports; these requirements are usually established and certified by the Sports Administration and or the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).
The American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Academy of Ophthalmology recommend that every family should wear at least one pair of ANSI-approved eye goggles when carrying out projects or activities that may cause the risk of eye injury at home.
Choosing safety glasses with "ANSIZ87.1" on the lens or frame means that glasses, eye goggles or face shields comply with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Z87.1 safety standard. Safety goggle glasses approved by the American National Standards Institute can be easily purchased from most hardware stores nationwide.
Eye protection is very important to us, so goggle glasses are indispensable. Of course, we also have to choose glasses that fit our own face shape, shop around and choose more cost-effective products. At the same time, we also need to learn to distinguish the types of eye goggles, and the glasses for different needs of the occasions are also different.
