Eyewear - Safety
eye-bar is one of the leading safety eyewear suppliers in Sherwood Park. Our optical store carries a large selection of safety eyewear from major brands such as UVEX, OnGuard, and the Wiley-X high velocity protection line. We carry safety frames that meet occupational requirements, recreational demands, police and law enforcement requirements and for motorcyclists. We also carry unique, smaller fitting frame styles for women. So don’t settle for plastic fits-over safety eyewear that blurs and distorts your vision. Let our licensed opticians help you find a comfortable, quality pair of prescription or non-prescription safety eyeglasses that you’ll wear without compromise.
All of eye-bar's safety eyewear frames are Ansi-Z87.1-Z87.2 approved or CSA Z94 ensuring they meet strict industry safety standards. We also safety stamp all of our prescription optical lenses for quality assurance and your piece of mind. These guidelines are set out to ensure that your eyes are well protected.
Injuries can still happen from flying fragments coming from a different work area, and as such most of our safety eyewear is offered with permanent or removable side shields. Some of our newer products like the Willy-X high velocity protection line follow the no gap 5mm rule required by many of Alberta’s oil sands operators in Fort McMurray and Grande Prairie. To learn more about these new protective safety eyeglasses, please stop by the optical to talk with one of our licensed opticians.
