uvex i-3 AR spectacle solves problem of glare at work

The issue of glare in the workplace is often under-estimated, but glare can be very disabling and even dangerous. Too much light can make it harder to see, and glare can lead to impaired vision, loss of contrast, eyestrain, squinting, pain, and uncomfortable and watering eyes.

To solve this widespread problem, uvex has designed the uvex i-3 AR (Anti-Reflective) safety spectacle, which features uvex permanent anti-reflective coating on both sides of the lens, giving the wearer exceptionally clear vision without dazzle.

Winner of a Special Mention in the German Design Awards 2014, the uvex i-3 AR eliminates glare from bright lights or reflected light from wet, white or shiny surfaces.

Suitable for use in a multitude of industries, including engineering, automotive, utilities, food and chemicals, the uvex i-3 AR has already achieved success for forklift truck drivers in the indoor warehouses for a global consumer goods company, where the spec combats reflection from lighting hitting shrink wrapped pallets.

Employees in the rail business of construction and infrastructure company Morgan Sindall are also benefitting from the uvex i-3 AR to reduce arc light dazzle.

Additional features of the lightweight, metal-free, uvex i-3 AR, such as a side arm flex zone, variable side arms, soft flex temple ends and soft, adjustable, nose bridge pads, enable a perfect individual fit and ensure optimum protection, comfort and security throughout the working day.
