Let's separate the myths from the facts surrounding eye protection 
Honestly, I don't need to protect my eyes all day long!

 
An accident can happen anywhere and at any time. This is why some companies are asking their employees to wear eye protection equipment at all times. The objective of this is not to bother you but to limit incidence of accidents at work, for which the employer is ultimately responsible.

The two most common causes of an eye injury are lack of protection or inadequate protection. With appropriate eye protection or glasses, 90% of eye damage can be prevented.
I wonder if the protective equipment is really useful ...

Accidents in the eyes are still rare …

 
For welders and oxycutters, eye injuries account for 27% of accidents. Overall, lack of protection and inadequate protection are the two most common causes of eye lesions.

Over exposure to high intensity sources may cause burns and damage to the eye, which can occur in a wide range of industrial and medical environments. Welding processes, steelworks and surgery are on the front line. To meet these specific needs, Bollé Safety offers protective glasses, goggles, face shields and welding helmets, specifically developed for combating optical radiation.
Optical radiation alone can't be dangerous.

To protect yourself against UV, just close your eyes!

 
In industrial environments the very large amounts of UV generated by certain activities are dangerous for the eyes and require appropriate professional protection. A few examples :
  • The welding arches cause a considerable UV emission which requires a very specific protective helmet, which must contain a quartz envelope because the glass does not allow the UV to pass.
  • Low-pressure fluorescent tubes (tanning booths) and high-pressure lamps
  • The UV diodes developed in Japan are widely used for instrument disinfection, printed circuit etching, spectroscopy and fluorescence microscopy in the laboratory, etc.

Colour or shade is not a good indicator. The UV filtration performance depends on the quality and type of material used to make the lenses. It is evaluated by a code 0,1,2 3 and 5, corresponding to a filtration scale of UVA and UVB. This classification is independent of colour, which is only related to comfort (clear, amber, brown, smoke ...).
To protect against UV, glasses with dark lenses are needed.
