According to the Vision Council, 75% of Americans use some kind of vision correction.
That’s about 164 million Americans wearing eyeglasses or contacts—with almost no solutions available that work with popular gas masks.
Remember, you can’t just wear your normal glasses with a gas mask. They’d break the seal. And contacts become problematic when you can’t just take off your gas mask and pop your contacts out. There are other, even more complicating, factors (that we’ll cover in a moment), but yet there are no easy, cost-effective vision solutions for the average American ...
Working with America’s only ophthalmic lab to focus on corrective lenses for gas masks, we’ve developed a practical, easy and cost-effective spectacle insert that addresses every issue inherent in using corrective lenses with gas masks and full face respirators.
Perfect Vision When You Need it Most
MIRA Safety Gas Masks and filters are designed to protect you from the full range of CBRN threats.
That means that if and when you use one, you’re likely to be under duress or in an emergency situation. You might be dealing with smoke or fog that blurs your vision, with just seconds to make the right decision. Regardless of the specifics of the situation, you’ll want the best vision possible.
Even for the 5 million workers who wear OSHA-required respirators on the job, compromised vision can lead to headaches, difficulty concentrating, and even workplace accidents.
And yet, for years, a gas mask spectacle insert has been seen as an option instead of an out-and-out requirement. And a poorly understood option at that.
For example, unlike most eyeglass frames, gas mask glasses sit further away from your face on a fixed mount. Almost twice as far away, in some cases. If your eye doctor doesn’t compensate for the difference in vertex, your vision won’t be properly corrected, which could cause serious issues during the crucial first 15-30 minutes of response time.
Likewise, the appropriate curve of the lens is affected. Unlike traditional glasses, your gas mask spectacles must work through a second layer, the mask’s clear visor. If the lenses aren’t curved to compensate for this, further vision distortions can occur.
These issues might sound minor, but they’re especially aggravated for anyone with a stronger prescription or who wears bifocals, which can complicate the issue even further.
Again, experts indicate that these issues can contribute to disorientation and difficulty in vision for at least 15–30 minutes after donning your mask, and likely for hours afterwards.
MIRA Safety regarded this as a critical issue.
So we set out to create gas mask spectacles that we would use for ourselves and our families.
We re-engineered them from the ground up, creating gas mask spectacles that are more than just an optional upgrade. It’s complete personalization of your gas mask for enhanced performance and survivability.
