Glasses and Contact Lens Manufacturing
The Importance of Glasses Manufacturing
I don’t have to tell you that protective eye-wear is vital in manufacturing
facilities! Many of these goggles are lightweight and durable (and hopefully comfortable as well!). Manufacturers use and make glasses that resist scratches and glasses that won’t fog up. But having protective gear isn’t enough, it needs to be effective protection. Glasses should protect you from harmful chemicals and processes like welding. If you have bad eyesight to begin with, you’ll need industrial safety glasses that not only protect your face but improve your eyesight as well.
While I could go on about how it is important for manufacturers to use protective eye-wear, I really want to delve into the importance of manufacturing processes. If we didn’t have effective manufacturing processes, we wouldn’t have protective/corrective eye-wear. About 10 million Australians have long-term eye problems (almost half the population), and it is our country’s most common health problem. As you can see, it’s kind of important that we have glasses manufacturers who know how to help all of these people!
Manufacturing is a large sector and vital to our economy—glasses manufacturing is a great niche market. About 6 years ago, a national census said that our labour force has over 7,000 people claiming to be ophthalmologists, optometrists and opticians. Since these occupations support people with eye problems, it’s important that they can depend on quality glasses manufacturers. So, you get this cycle where manufacturers support eye-care professionals, and those professionals help correct and protect the population’s eyesight.
