Safety Eye Wear
Your eyes let you experience the wonder of the world. Without them you would be lost. Don’t take chances with your eyes! Whether at work, playing sports or home improvement projects, protect your eyes. Protective goggles or safety glasses can protect your eyes from injury in order to ensure that you enjoy a lifetime of clear, good vision. Research shows that almost 90% of eye injuries could be prevented with the right safety goggles or eyewear.
Fortunately, there are options when it comes time to choosing the right protective eyewear for your lifestyle. Eyesafe is a program administered by the Alberta Association of Optometrists to promote workplace eye safety by providing prescription safety glasses, eyewear accessories and services provided by Doctors of Optometry. Formerly known as Occupational Vision Care, the program is the largest and longest-running eye safety program in Alberta, and is free to join.
