Pocket-Sized Eye Protection

Once you see a co-worker going through the body fluid exposure treatment protocol because blood, vomit (or worse) from a patient landed in their eyes, you learn to keep your eye protection handy. But finding it when you need it can be problematic. The newMEDshieldseyewear is a flexible, clear plastic lens that can be kept in your shirt pocket and unfolded in seconds when needed. This eyewear doesnÌt have a frame. Instead, a small area of adhesive on each side enables you to stick the MEDshields to your face at the temples. If you wear glasses, theyÌll easily stick to your frames and provide additional coverage and side protection. MEDshields are also available in a 100 lens multi-pack that takes up less space than a single set of safety goggles.
