Fit-over - Frame 10 

Benefits: Offers a large field of vision. Has side shields for effective eye coverage and protection. Has 1 piece adjustable temples. Fits over prescription glasses and most splash goggles.

The Fit-over 10 Frame is our best-selling frame by a decisive margin - it is typically the most economical solution for labs looking to buy laser eyewear that will fit everyone reducing expense for individual-specific protective eyewear. In almost all situations that are not atypical (for e.g.; fitting eyewear underneath a face shield etc.), this frame is highly recommended when the choice is polycarbonate glasses.

Spectacle - Frame 35

Benefits: Fits large heads and faces. Fits over most standard prescription glasses. Pros include high comfort and side-protection with a wide view of vision. This is our second most popular frame and is our best option for Glass and Dielectric-Coated glasses. 

Sports-Wrap - Frame 38

Benefits: It close-fits the face giving an overall sleek-sporty look. Fits under most splash goggles and has been used under face shields. It offers good side protection. 

Aviator - Frame 40

Benefits: Least common frame sold. However,  a few customers do like the feel that it provides.

Goggle - Frame 25

Benefits: Surrounds very large prescription glasses and offers a close fit. Works well with laminated lenses where two lenses are glued together.

Cons: Most expensive frame in the range. It is also the most pervasive on the face.

Children's Glasses - Frame 27/28

Benefits: Works well for children.
