Just found instructions on how to make eyewear protection from a soda bottle. Buy why? C'mon DYI'ers...when you have a pair of Eye-Tools bifocals do you really need to spend time cutting up a soda bottle rather than finishing your project? Plus Eye-Tools are way better looking.

According to the American Optometric Association the two major reasons workers experience eye injuries on the job are because they were:
1. Not wearing eye protection, or
2. Wearing the wrong kind of protection for the job.

If you need reading glasses for up close clarity but also need the right kind of eye protection such as shatter proof polycarbonate lenses - consider Eye-Tools reading glasses.

With Eye-Tools readers it's like having two pair of glasses in one. All the protection your eyes need from flying debris and the clarity of your favorite pair of reading glasses. All in one pair! And they are priced so you can own several pair. Keep one in the shop, garage and work.

Be prepared. Be an Eye-Tools reader guy.

Fog happens. The problem, of course, is that when you're working hard your skin is warming up and becoming moist from sweat. So you're stuck with a layer of humid, warm air of your own making. Eyeglasses, meanwhile, jut out somewhat into the surrounding atmosphere, so to speak. That's almost sure to be cooler than your skin temperature. So when that moist air from your skin condenses on the cooler surface of the sunglass lenses, hey presto, you're suddenly blind as a bat. 

The real key to non-fogged lenses is to keep air circulating behind them. Choose a style frame that stands out from your face. This will allow air flow around the glasses and reduce fogging.

The outdoor and indoor winter environments can aggravate our eyes, making them dry or teary. When its cold there are a few simple steps to keep your protect your eyes:

Wear sunglasses, preferably the kind that wrap around your face. This will help against both snow glare and the cold wind.

If you have dry eyes, apply artificial tears or mild lubricating eye drops.

Contact lens wearers should re-wet their lenses often.

Blink more.

See? Simple.

Polycarbonate lenses are up to 10 times more impact-resistant than plastic or glass lenses and they provide 100% protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays. They are also lightweight, adding to the comfort of your eyewear.

Polycarbonate lenses are the most impact-resistant lenses on the market because of its manufacturing process. The majority of other plastic lenses utilize a cast molding process. This is when a liquid plastic material is baked for long periods, in lens form, until the liquid plastic solidifies into a lens.

On the other hand, polycarbonate is a thermoplastic material produced from small pellets. Therefore, the earliest phase of polycarbonate lenses begin from a solid source, eliminating the cast molding process and instead use a process called injection molding in which the pellets are heated to a melting point. Once in liquid form, the polycarbonate is rapidly injected into lens molds. At this phase in the process, the lens molds are compressed under high pressure and cooled to form a final lens product–in a matter of minutes.

The difference in the manufacturing process is what makes polycarbonate a stronger, more impact-resistant lens.
