COVID19 is spread primarily through respiratory droplets (World Health Organisation). These droplets can be breathed in by anyone, but they can also land on your eyes and infect you through ocular transmission. Therefore it is important in the battle against the coronavirus to protect your eyes.
Whilst normal glasses provide some protection against these infected droplets, the glasses and goggles in this range offer enhanced protection. Special note should be paid to the models featuring ‘Full Seal‘ protection, meaning that they create a seal around your eyes to keep out those droplets from almost any angle, making them perfect for frontline health workers.
