I wear prescription glasses. My Supervisor says I must wear safety glasses but I can’t see well enough with out prescription glasses. What alternatives are there?

Thanks for the question Matt!

Barb Anderson said, “Check with your employer for their policy. Safety glasses can be made with prescription lenses. Many times the employer will pay for all or part of your prescription safety glasses. Prescription glasses can be made with added side shields.”
