Construction work tops the charts as one of the most dangerous occupations in the US. A range of hazards fly in the face of construction workers regularly, such as splashes from toxic chemicals, debris, UV radiation from sunlight and infrared radiation from torch welding.
To keep your vision safe when you’re working on-site, visit our Las Vegas eye doctor for an eye exam and to consult about the best protective goggles, frames and lenses.
