Tactical Rx Prescription Safety Eyewear Program

Many of our customers have colleagues that share similar eyewear needs. Whether it’s an LEO looking for set of glasses that will help him or her see a clean sight picture while still being able to check ID”s and use their phones, or a field engineer whose company requires they wear ANSI z87 rated safety-eyewear at work, these customers are not alone in their needs.

Which is why we want to remind everyone that Tactical Rx offers Prescription Safety Eyewear Programs for various groups. We work with diverse groups to provide easy, discounted prescription safety eyewear specially designed to meet an organization’s specific optical needs. Some benefits:
– The curvature and optics of our curved-format sport lenses help employees see better, which makes for a safer environment.
– Google “Rx Safety Eyewear” and check out the options that come up. Tactical Rx runs the coolest safety eyewear program around.
– If this is a point of occupational safety and protection, your workplace should help cover the cost of your gear, including eyewear.
– You no longer need to damage your everyday eyewear by jamming them under Over-the-Glasses safety glasses.
– Discounted pricing.
– As a friendly incentive, we automatically extend a discount to the immediate families of all program members.

We’re flexible in the arrangement of a program, working within an organization’s budget and employee roster to customize a program that will treat them well.

If you feel like you and your colleagues could benefit from this arrangement, don’t hesitate to put your HR or Safety Program manager in touch with us to explore the options.

Jamie Hyneman Wears our Custom Prescription Glasses

Here at Tactical Rx, we like to brag when it’s appropriate. And every time we see our prescription lenses on TV it’s gotta be appropriate, right? We’ve been very pleased to work with Jamie Hyneman, co-host of the show MythBusters on the Discovery Channel and owner of special effects company M5 Industries. We don’t have to explain the show, and it’s easy understand that safety eyewear is a requisite piece of equipment during the many myths these guys attempt to bust. Explosions and shrapnel and debris is always flying all around. Plus it’s sunny. This is a perfect recipe for Rx safety glasses and what we made for Jamie Hyneman was a pretty cool set-up:

The frame is a authentic vintage, metal safety frame from American Optical with rigid-mesh eye cups and very thin temples pieces. It’s a classic look, part modern steampunk part industrial revolution. For Jamie’s lenses, we went dark. Really dark. A polar grey lens, with a grey after-tint with a silver mirror, for as dark a lens as we could get (90%+ Visible Light Blockage). There’s no chance at seeing his pupils through the lenses. One unique aspect about making lenses for dudes on TV is that based on the high-activity of everything off-camera, a lens with any spherical curve will grab reflections of things that shouldn’t be seen. With this in mind, we had to make an entirely flat lens so that production crews could better manage the reflections caught in the mirror.

If you watch the show in the past few years, you’ve probably seen him in the shades that we made. Now you know what they are and where to get them, and if you come by our shop you’ll see this signed photo on the wall that Jamie was cool enough to send over.
