Keeping your eyes safe is absolutely paramount. But of course, that doesn’t mean you have to settle for ugly glasses that don’t fit your personal style and taste. With Nike leaded glasses, you’ll not only have plenty of choices to consider, but you know that you’ll be getting glasses that are as functional as they are stylish.
Function of Leaded Glasses
When you work in the medical field, you know how important it is to take the proper safety measures–not only for the safety of the patient, but for your own as well. X-rays and CT scans put off radiation that can be dangerous to any individuals running or being present during the tests. Leaded aprons and other equipment can protect your body, but your eyes are a critical piece of the puzzle.
Different body tissues will react differently to radiation exposure. For example, tissues that regenerate are very sensitive to radiation, and the lenses of your eyes fall into that category. This is because the epithelium cells are constantly dividing on the eye lenses, and when they are exposed to radiation over time, they develop damage which will adversely affect your vision. Leaded glasses help to prevent your eyes from getting radiation damage.
Lead is the most commonly used material to protect those regenerating cells. In fact, it works to absorb the harmful rays put off by medical equipment. Lead is very dense, and the higher the density, the more atoms are in the material. As a result, the x-rays and gamma rays emitted have more elections, which means that there is more interference when they try to pass through the atoms of lead.
Therefore, lead is an ideal material to help provide your body with protection. That’s why anyone who’s ever been in an x-ray will remember having to wear a heavy lead vest over various parts of your body depending on what area receives the x-ray. This lead vest will protect your body from any of the harmful radiation that is created during the test. And as it turns out, the same general principle applies for your eyes.
Styles To Consider
After understanding about the importance of protecting your eyes from radiation, now comes the fun part: where to find your perfect pair of glasses. And with Nike, you not only have a variety of styles to choose from, but you know you’ll get the type of quality that the brand has become synonymous with.
For The Ladies:
If you like the look of vintage glasses, we have a pair that is perfect for you. Available in two different shades, these glasses will provide much needed protection for your eyes while still showing off your personal style. And if you’re looking for a pop of pink, look no further than the Nike Vital Radiation Glasses in deep burgundy hyper pink tortoise design.
Of course, you aren’t limited to staying within the women’s section of leaded glasses. They are, however, designed in order to be better suited to a woman’s face. But if you can’t find a pair in this section that seems to be the right, fit, you have a variety of other options to consider.
Nike is known for its variety of styles, and the same holds true for its glasses. The variety of frame styles and colors mean you’ll be sure to find something that you like.
If you aren’t looking in the women’s section, then it’s time to narrow down your pick. The first thing you should do is consider the frame shape and materials you’re looking for. For example, if you are looking for leaded glasses that look more like traditional glasses, then you’ll want to stay away from the wraparound frame.
Once you’ve decided that you want regular glasses, it’s time to decide on the material you’d like your glasses to be made of: plastic or metal. In addition, you can also decide on options such as two-tone glasses and retro-style of glasses.
Retro glasses can offer you large glasses, with a square lens. They tend to be stylish, while being available in a variety of colors that ensure you’ll be able to find just what you need. Metal and plastic frames, of course, are also options for you to consider.
Of course, the regular fit of glasses may not be your preferred choice. In that case, you should browse through the wraparound frames. These wraparound frames curve around your head, meaning they not only look different, but also give you a wider field of clear vision.
Some people love this style, while others simply don’t. And that highlights another benefit of this brand: Nike offers so many different options that regardless of your taste, you will find the right glasses.
With over 50 years of experience, Nike has created a legacy of quality. When you are looking for a pair of leaded glasses for work, you’ve come to the right spot. Glasses from this brand will do a great job of protecting your eyes, while suiting your style and preferences perfectly.
From modern to classic to colorful or monochromatic, you’ll be able to find exactly what you need. Protecting your eyes is important, especially when the consequences could be losing your sight or dramatically reducing your vision.
