Eyewear, Safety definition: Eyeglasses designed to protect the eyes from hazardous mechanical and/or light intensity/frequency conditions, enhancing user safety. Safety eyewear for mechanical protection typically consists of two thick, shatter-resistant, plastic lenses that protect the eyes from flying debris (e.g., blood splatter) mounted in a frame that holds them in an appropriate position before the eyes to assist vision and a metal or plastic frame that rests on the nose with two hinged legs that are supported by the ears; other safety eyewear includes lenses that filter out high-intensity light (e.g., laser beams) and/or ultraviolet light. Safety eyewear is used clinically to protect patients and healthcare providers in situations in which blood and other body fluids are manipulated, laser radiation is produced during therapeutic and surgical procedures, and ultraviolet radiation is used during phototherapy and in some clinical laboratory procedures. Safety eyewear may be also graduated to improve the visual acuity of the user.
