Your prescription safety glasses consist of a CSA approved frame with protective side shields and plastic lenses with a scratch-resistant coating.

Can I take my current prescription to a professionnal on the list?

My regular “fashion” glasses have a non-reflective coating and/or are tinted. Can I have the same treatment on my safety glasses?

Only if your company allows these treatments as part of its program.

What are cataracts?

A cataract is a clouding of the lens of the eye. The lens is located near the front of the eye. It focuses light on the retina at the back of the eye to form the images we see.

A cataract may affect just a small part of the lens, or it may cloud the entire lens. If your sight is not badly impaired, the lens does not have to be removed. However, if the central part of the lens is cloudy, you may not be able to see unless the lens is removed and replaced with an artificial one.


What is glaucoma?

Glaucoma is an eye disease caused by increased pressure within the eye. It is one of the most common causes of blindness and affects 250,000 Canadians. Although it often occurs in older people, it can develop at any age.

People with glaucoma probably lose their sight as increased pressure in the eye and other factors (such as poor blood flow) affect the optic nerve at the back of the eye. The eye slowly loses nerve function and loss of peripheral (side) vision. This occurs painlessly, even unnoticeably.
