5 Steps to Ordering

  1. The Job Order provided by your employer will show the choices and restrictions it has for frames, lenses, coatings, and the coverage amount. All Eyesafe™ clinics strictly comply with the Job Order form.
  2. Take your Job Order to an Eyesafe™️ clinic. Find the closest clinic here. You can also book your annual eye exam at the same time as choosing your eyewear. Let the clinic staff know when you book your appointment.
  3. If you would like an option outside of your company’s policy as indicated on the Job Order – such as transition lenses, please ensure approval is indicated and authorized on the Job Order.
  4. Clinic staff will recommend the frame, lens and coating that provides the best fit and protection from your workplace hazards. If the clinic does not carry the frame you would like, ask that they contact the Eyesafe™️ office.
  5. When you pick up your completed safety eyewear in 5 to 10 business days after ordering, the clinic will ensure a perfect fit to your face. After you receive your safety eyewear, we encourage you to take the service survey. Your feedback helps our team to provide the best service possible!

What to Expect When Visiting the Eyesafe™ Clinic

Ensuring that your eyes are properly protected requires that you share some information with the staff at the Eyesafe™️ clinic you visit.

It’s your turn to ask questions and share information about your work environment.

Things to Share:

  1. Let the clinical staff know about the hazards you face in your work environment, such as dust, chemicals, flying debris and/or fine particles.
  2. Mention other environmental challenges such as extreme temperatures, being outdoors, sun exposure, humidity or wet conditions.
  3. Explain the average number of hours each day that you will wear your safety eyewear.

Things to Remember for Your Visit

When trying on various frames, it’s important to focus on more than just how the eyewear looks.

  1. Fit – Frames come in many sizes allowing you to find a fit that works best for you.
  2. Sightlines – Some frames allow greater peripheral vision. Your frames should match the peripheral vision needed for your work environment.
  3. Protection – If your work environment requires a full seal or dust dam, both will provide greater protection and more comfort if you are wearing safety eyewear for long periods of time.
  4. Perfect Fit – The clinic staff will help you find the Perfect Fit. If it’s not the right fit, we can help.
  5. Timeline – Manufacturing your order will take 5 to 10 business days, depending on your prescription, lenses and frame choices. Our goal is accuracy and quality to ensure we meet Alberta’s Occupational Health and Safety requirements and your employer’s policy guidelines.
  6. Selection – We encourage you to take a look at the Eyesafe™️ Catalogue online. Most clinics will carry 10 to 20 frame choices, if the clinic does not carry the frame you would like, ask that they contact the Eyesafe™️ office. While you may like the look of a frame, the Eyesafe™️ clinic staff can advise you on whether the frame will provide the best fit and protection for you.

Eye Exams: It’s All Connected

There’s more to a comprehensive eye exam than just checking how well you can see and determining your eyeglass prescription (refraction).
Detecting Eye Diseases, Retina Tears and Tumors

During a comprehensive eye exam your optometrist examines the tissues and structures inside the eye, looking for eye
diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, or macular degeneration, as well as tears in the retina, bleeding and tumors. Many
eye diseases have no early signs or symptoms, and early treatment is much more successful in managing the disease.

Eye Exams Can Also Reveal Signs of Diabetes, High Blood Pressure and Cardiovascular Disease

Your optometrist is also looking for early signs of serious medical conditions, such as high blood pressure, diabetes,
and cardiovascular diseases during an exam.

Employer Coverage

Many employers cover the cost of eye exams through Eyesafe™️ or your benefits provider. Check with your employer. If you are not covered, the small cost of an eye exam significantly helps you manage your health.

 

Urgent Care

Call for an urgent appointment for eye infections, injury or inflammation of the eye and eyelid. Your optometrist has the proper knowledge and equipment necessary to diagnose, treat, and prescribe medications. These appointments are covered by Alberta Health.

Frequently Asked Questions

If your current optometrist’s clinic is a member of Eyesafe™ then yes, you can. Call the clinic and ask or look for the Eyesafe™️ logo next to your clinic’s name on the “Find an Eyesafe™️ Clinic” feature.

Use the Find an Eyesafe™ Optometrist feature to locate an Eyesafe™ clinic nearest you. With more than 350+ member clinics, you’re likely not far from an Eyesafe™ clinic.

Your job order form will outline the policy of your employer for frame, lens and coating options.

Eyesafe™ works closely with your employer to choose the right policy for frames, lenses and coatings meeting the hazards of your work environment and compliance standards. If an option is restricted, most often it’s because of specific compliance requirements or safety policies of your employer.

Generally, the answer is no. Your employer has specified which options are available for frames, lenses and coatings. This policy is based on compliance standards and your work environment. If you want to add an option (such as transition lenses) that your employer has not approved, it’s your responsibility to obtain the approval and have it noted on the job order form.

Eyesafe™ clinics are professionals in ocular services. The clinic staff works closely with you to choose the right lenses and coatings based on your eye prescription, hazards, employer’s policy and frame choice.

Your job order form will specify the maximum contribution that your employer will make towards your prescription safety eyewear purchase. You can ask the clinic to provide you with a quote showing the portion covered and what would be payable by you. They can also adjust your choice of frame, lens and coatings until you are satisfied with the amount you need to pay. The cost of Eyesafe™️ prescription safety eyewear is significantly lower due to the volume of safety eyewear it manufactures each year.

Eyesafe™️ guarantees the Perfect Fit. It’s important that your eyewear fits your facial features in order to ensure the best protection. This isn’t available online. It’s about protecting your only set of eyes. Isn’t it worth the time and effort?

If the safety eyewear frame or lenses are not working well, contact your optometric clinic right away for any adjustments or changes. Frames that are already worn in the workplace cannot be returned but may be adjusted to provide a better fit. Your lenses have a 120 day re-do warranty for lens non-adaptation and prescription changes. See the warranty information on this page below.

Frames

Eyesafe™ offers 150+ frame choices in various sizes and styles to fit the facial features of the wearer and mitigate workplace hazards. Eyesafe™ carries frames that are compliant to the Canadian Standards Association (CSA Z94.3) and American National Standards Institute (ANSI Z87.1).

Lenses

A wide assortment of custom-made lens materials are available through Eyesafe™️. The type of lens provided at the clinic will be based on your prescription, workplace hazards and your employer’s safety policy.

CR-39 Plastic Lenses

  • Light weight, impact resistant and widely prescribed for comfort and durability.
  • Designed to allow for tinting and other treatments, a CR-39 plastic lens is one of the most popular choices for safety eyewear.
  • A scratch resistant coating is always applied to prevent scuffs and marks.

Polycarbonate lenses

  • Lighter than plastic lenses while still meeting the minimum thickness requirements of safety eyewear, Polycarbonate is ideal for stronger prescriptions.
  • Offers protection from the sun’s harmful ultra violet light.

Trivex lenses

  • Virtually weightless, similar to Polycarbonate in durability and ultra violet protection.
  • Provides exceptional clarity and comfort.

Coatings

Lens coatings on safety prescription eyewear enhance durability, performance and appearance. Not all coatings are available to you – the choice of coatings is restricted by your company’s safety eyewear policy as noted on your Job Order form.


It’s All Backed by the Strength of the Eyesafe Warranty

Safety eyewear not quite right? Eyesafe™ wants to make certain that your eyewear protects you the way it should. If you happen to find that the frame or lenses do not meet your expectations, we’re here to help. Eyesafe™ has one of the strongest warranties in the industry.

Lens Replacement at No Charge

Lenses may be replaced at no charge, one time, within 120 days of receiving the safety eyewear at your Eyesafe™ clinic. Lenses may be replaced for manufacturer defects, non-adaptation, or prescription changes.

Frame Warranty Coverage

Frames are covered under a manufacturer’s warranty for defects only, up to one (1) year from dispensing. Defects refers to manufacturing defects and do not include wear and tear, breakage from handling or frames that have been physically altered or adjusted. Employees also have seven (7) days from dispensing to return a safety frame for non-adapt. The frame MUST be in brand new saleable condition for the return. The frame non-adapt warranty will not be applicable if the frame shows any signs of wear or usage. Frame accessories, such as nose pads, are not covered for wear and tear. Certain accessories, such as nose pads, can be purchased directly from a member Eyesafe™ clinic.

1-Year Coatings Warranty

Coatings are warranted against defects for a period of one year.

Let the Eyesafe™ Pros Adjust Your Safety Eyewear

If you require adjustments to your safety eyewear, simply contact your Eyesafe™ clinic. Any adjustments made by the user of safety eyewear may void the warranty or change the impact resistance of the safety eyewear, possibly making the eyewear non-compliant to standards and regulations.
