Safety Glasses That Fit Over Eyeglasses

You realize that a pair of safety glasses will protect your precious eyesight and you should wear them for many on-the-job or around-the-house tasks. Perhaps the fact that you already wear a pair of prescription eyeglasses has prevented you from taking the leap. You can, of course, order a pair of safety glasses online that are fitted with lenses in your exact prescription – the process is quite easy, and likely not nearly as expensive as you might think. But if you’re looking for a more cost-effective solution, you do have another option.

You can order a pair of “fitover” safety glasses, which are designed to completely cover your prescription eyeglasses yet are free from that bulky, goggle-like look. Let your regular glasses provide visual clarity while the fitovers supply an outer layer of safety coverage. Fitovers come with clear, polarized gray, or contrast-enhancing yellow lenses, and are ANSI Z87-approved for safety and impact resistance.

Phillips Safety Products offers three universal-fit fitover frames that will protect you for a price that will likely surprise you. If fact, they’re cheap enough to order one for work and another for home, or to pick up frames with different lens coatings so that you’re ready for any light conditions, indoors or out. See the highlights below:

 Fitover Safety Glasses PSG-CLR-FOB


  • Soft-grip rubberized frame material in neutral black.
  • Tinted side shields for eye comfort.
  • Clear lenses with an anti-reflective coating to reduce glare.

 Fitover Safety Glasses PSG-GRY-FOB


  • Soft-grip rubberized frame material.
  • Tinted side shields for added protection.
  • Polarized Gray3 polycarbonate lenses with black frame.

 Fitover Safety Glasses PSG-YLW-FOB


  • Soft-grip rubberized frame material in neutral black.
  • Tinted side shields for comfort and protection.
  • Yellow enhancement lenses with an anti-reflective coating.

All three feature tinted side shades, which enhance your peripheral vision without sacrificing protective safety. They’re like portholes in the sides of the frames, and prevent the “tunnel vision” effect you’d get if you place goggles or other solid-frame safety equipment over your prescription eyeglasses. And the soft-grip rubber frame material makes them non-slip to stay in place and comfortable over long periods of use.

Don’t let cost deter you from protecting your eyes in dangerous situations. And if you’re concerned with appearance, check out the photos of these glasses; you can see from the frame design that although these fitovers lack bulk and excessive weight, they really do completely disguise the glasses that are worn underneath.
