To support Westmead Hospital during COVID-19, we are donating free Medical Grade Protective Eyewear to all hospital staff.
The eyewear has been treated with an Anti- Fog coating to combat the issue of spectacles fogging while wearing surgical/hygiene masks. This coating prevents the rear surface of the lens from fogging up and is also scratch resistant. It will also be available on any prescription eyewear ordered through Westmead Eyes in the future. The eyewear meets Australian and New Zealand Safety Eye Protection Standards AS/NZS1337.6 and AS/NZS1337.1 and is certified with SAI Global under Lic.SMKH21598 and Lic. SMKH20251.
SARS-CoV-2 may be contracted through the eyes from droplet exposure or by touching the eyes. Safety eyewear can therefore act as a barrier. The recipients of safety eyewear will likely continue wearing their protective eyewear well beyond COVID-19 and therefore potentially reduce the risk of infection, injury, UV damage, foreign bodies and chemical injuries.
Simply come in, present your staff ID and ask for your free pair.
