Safeopedia Explains Anti-Fog Safety Glasses

Anti-fog glasses are an integral part of workers' safety equipment, as they keep the wearer's eyes safe and dry while keeping the vision fog-free, even in higher temperatures or during labor-intensive work.

Anti-fog glasses significantly improve performance, and they are regulated under the industrial eye protection standards of ANSI Z87.1. To be approved, they need to pass strict criteria for lens thickness, corrosion, flammability, and side-shield protection, as well as optical requirements.
