What to Look for in Safety Glasses for Women

There's a lot that goes into making a pair of women's safety glasses, and even more requirements set by our opticians to make it onto our best of list. Continue reading below to see our optician's criteria when curating today's lineup of safety glasses for women. You can also visit our Ultimate Safety Glasses Buyer's Guide for more information.


Regardless of gender, all safety glasses must pass the strict safety standards set forth by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). To earn ANSI-certification, frames and lenses go through multiple rounds of rigorous testing to guarantee they're delivering adequate protection. These tests are designed to mirror common workplace hazards such as blunt impacts, airborne dirt, dust, and debris, and chemical splashes.

If your employer requires safety-rated eyewear, chances are they're referring to ANSI Z87.1-certification. This safety rating is one of the most common workplace eyewear requirements. Every frame in our lineup of the best women's safety glasses is ANSI Z87.1-certified. They also have an ANSI Z87-2 safety rating, which is the prescription equivalent of Z87.1.

Generous Coverage

Coverage is key to protecting your vision against external threats. The frame and lenses act as a physical barrier between your eyes and any potential hazards, while also providing the clear vision required to complete the job. The best safety glasses for women will deliver a generous amount of coverage with a wide field of view. Whether it's an 8-base wrap around design, protective side shields, or tall and wide lenses, all of today's frames provide generous coverage, so you can focus on the task-at-hand.

Perfect Fit

Without a proper fit, eyewear can quickly become distracting instead of performance-enhancing. If they're too large, slipping frames will require frequent readjustments. Oversized frames can also leave gaps between your eyes and external factors, which leaves your vision susceptible to the very elements you're trying to block out. Conversely, if your eyewear is too small, squeezing temples can quickly lead to uncomfortable headaches. To get the most out of your women's safety glasses, a properly-fitting frame ensures concentration during your workflow and the maximum amount of protection.

To help you get a perfect fit, we've come up with a reliable way to understand and determine frame size. SportRx Frame Width gives you a true sense of how a frame will fit, and how it aligns with your personal SFW. Every frame in our lineup of stylish safety glasses has an SFW measurement and can be used as a point of reference when comparing sizes.

Best Safety Glasses

Let's check out the frames!

Wiley X Sleek

The first three frames in our lineup come from Wiley X, a pioneer in the protective eyewear industry. All Wiley X women's safety glasses boast ANSI Z87.1-certification and feature stylish designs you'll actually want to wear. Our first design is the Wiley X Sleek. It is the smallest frame in the WX Climate Control Series, making it a perfect fit for those with smaller faces or petite features. The WX Seal features a removable Facial Cavity™ Seal, which creates a complete seal between your eyes and dirt, dust, debris, and wind. Then, for after hours, simply remove the foam eyecup for a stylish look that acts as a finishing accessory to all your favorite outfits. And can we talk about that color? Purple safety glasses have never looked, or performed, better.
