New Safety Eyewear Serves Dental Professionals And Patients On Multiple Levels

09-10-2018

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), thousands of people are blinded each year from work-related eye injuries, the majority of which could have been prevented with safety eyewear. Eye injuries alone cost more than $300 million per year in lost production time, medical expenses, and worker compensation.1

Palmero Healthcare, the leader in dental safety eyewear and a Hu-Friedy subsidiary, understands the dental professional’s vital need to protect their practice and their patients and is pleased to introduce Provision® New Safety Eyewear, nine unique styles that serve dental professionals and patients on multiple levels.

Dental professionals continually perform tasks placing them and their patients at risk for exposure to blood, saliva, and respiratory droplets. Palmero’s Provision New Safety Eyewear protects against spray, splash, and splatter for infection control; eliminates blue light exposure; and protects from high impact flying projectiles that can cause permanent damage to the eye. In addition, all of the styles are comfortable enough to ensure compliance!

From broad protective products consisting of full-face shields and goggles, to more procedure specific systems like laser safety and bonding glasses, Palmero’s Provision New Safety Eyewear offers the ultimate in comfort, convenience, and affordability. In addition, our safety eyewear meets the ANSI Z87.1 eye and face protection standards with UVA and UVB protection.

“We recommend dental professionals implement an Eye Conservation Program for their practice by using the four C’s of safety eyewear: Certified, Clarity, Comfort, and Compliance,” said Ms. Karen Neiner, president of Palmero Healthcare, LLC.

Certified: Safety eyewear should incorporate a wraparound design for full coverage and meet industry standards and guidelines for lens, cornea, and retina protection (ANSIZ87.1, OSHA, and CDC). It must be manufactured from high impact resistant materials to protect from flying debris and projectiles and encompass a specialty bonding lens to filter out damaging Blue Light (400 nm- 500 nm) levels to the retina.

Clarity: Anti-fog coating, scratch resistant technologies, and superior lens designs provide excellent optics for visual acuity.

Comfort: There are many styles with a broad range of frame, temple, and nose bridge designs. Individualized fit provides all day security and optimal comfort.

Compliance: Designs that provide practitioners incentives to use safety eyewear in every procedure, every day.

Palmero’s Provision New Safety Eyewear meets the four C’s and comes in a variety of options.

All of the Provision lines come in lightweight frames. Provision Allure, Air, Element, and Clarity also come in an ultra-lightweight design. Goggles can be cumbersome, but not our ultra-light Eyesaver Sleeks. Their sleek design fits over prescription eyewear and adjustable temples allow for broader facial fit. Our ProVision EZ-Focals are also extremely comfortable. The wraparound frame is contoured with soft tips for added comfort, grip, and a secure fit. ProVision Clarity provides incredibly clear and uninterrupted vision with its enhanced ultra anti-fog technology. It also fits small/narrow and medium face shapes. ProVision Flexiwrap provides full wraparound protection and a secure, comfortable fit with shorter, soft touch temples and a soft nose bridge.

The anti-static and anti-fogging features of ProVision Infinity provide added protection and venting. It’s also enhanced with a pantoscopic tilt feature. Ratcheting temple arms allow for customizable fit and optimal comfort.

The full 50mm diameter-magnifying lens of Palmero’s ProVision Econo Loupes provides a fully enhanced clinical field and is a lightweight alternative to traditional loupes. It reduces eye strain and increases visual precision.

Safety eyewear is essential for all dental professionals and their patients. Eye protection must always be provided whenever necessary. Incorporate the Four C’s in your practice. Protect your eyesight and the eyesight of your patients with Palmero’s full line of safety eyewear.
