Starlite® MAG Bifocal Safety Eyewear. Gateway Safety
Family Part #: GATEWAY TSI-46M
To meet the needs of an aging workforce, Gateway Safety offers bifocal safety eyewear in five diopter strengths: 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5 and 3.0. Bifocal safety lenses provide close focus accommodation for those with presbyopia, a normal part of aging vision that causes a decrease in the ability to focus sharply on nearby objects. That creates a need to use magnifying reading glasses or bifocals. Providing workers with bifocal eye protection prevents the hazardous practice of switching back and forth between their regular safety glasses and reading glasses to read instrumentation, work with small parts, or perform other tasks that could produce eyestrain. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of Americans between the ages of 55 and 64 will increase by nearly 44 percent over the next decade – more than 11.5 million people. And, surprisingly, Americans age 65 and older represent one of the highest labor force participation rates in the developed world, according to the U.S. Administration on Aging. The nation's 78 million baby boomers are putting off retirement longer than ever before, so an unprecedented number of mature workers will be members of the workforce of the 21st century. StarLite® MAG is cost-effective, super-light bifocal eye protection from Gateway Safety's popular Starlite family of eye protection. Introduced nearly ten years ago, Starlite® is still the one workers love to wear for the contemporary styling, comfort, and protection. Dual 9.75 base curvatures provides a wide, ample view of the workplace. Deep, universal-fit temples provide side protection equal to that of eyewear with large side shields. StarLite® MAG offers the same efficient manufacturing as the original StarLite®, so the price will fit virtually any budget. Meets or exceeds ANSI Z87.2+ standard.
