Protective Eyewear Could Help Reduce Risk of COVID-19 Exposure When Paired with Mask
Updated: Aug 13, 2020
When it comes to staying healthy against the Coronavirus, we know the basic protocol: wear a mask, wash your hands, practice social distancing, and avoid touching your face. Though the nose and mouth are the primary entry points for harmful germs, it’s important to protect all the mucosal surfaces on the face — that is, the nose, mouth, and yes, the eyes.
Adding safety eyewear to your COVID-19 prevention routine is a smart precaution to take if you find yourself in high-risk environments where social distancing cannot be maintained. When worn properly, BrandX eyewear will help stop airborne droplets from reaching the eyes, as is required by the ANSI Z87.1 safety standards we uphold in all of our products. Basic safety glasses and sunglasses provide an extra barrier between you and the virus, though for more complete protection you may seek a face shield or safety goggles that seal off the eyes.
At BrandX, we put our glasses directly in harm’s way so that you’re out of it. On top of protecting your eyes from hazardous droplets, all of our glasses feature anti-fog lenses and anti-slip technology on the bridge and temples to reduce the number of times you touch your face.
