Safety eyewear is one of the specialty items we carry at our North Edmonton and Sherwood Park locations (Not available in our Downtown location). If workers were equipped with proper safety eyewear, many injuries could be easily avoided. Our eye clinics are a member of the Occupational Vision Care (OVC) program. Many employers cover the cost of prescription safety eyeglasses for their employees. Ask your employer if you are covered by the OVC safety eyeglasses program through Alberta Association of Optometrists.
Canadian Safety Approved (CSA) Safety Glasses
With this in mind, we have a large collection of top quality Safety Frames and Lenses with excellent cost savings. Safety frames and Lenses are certified and stamped to meet CSA and ANSI Z87 standards. Furthermore, as our patients, you can order your CSA safety glasses even if your company is not part of the OVC program. These specialty eyeglasses can still be purchased privately at a very reasonable cost by yourself if you are not under Occupational Vision Care. Presently all locations have a very large selection of safety frames and side shields, please stop by to view our safety frame collection.
