Here is the best respirator for people who wear glasses.
Anyone working around fine dust particles, chemicals, spray paint, concrete dust, resin, alcohol ink and more are likely wearing proper protection, and this includes an N95 equivalent respirator.
However, one of the biggest complaints we hear about is how difficult it is to find a respirator that works with glasses.
Many people who wear glasses and need to wear respirators to protect their lungs and eyes often try to fit their existing respirator over their glasses, resulting in discomfort and improper fit.
We have found the perfect respirator that works for glasses wearers, and we are going to share that with you today.
When looking for a respirator that will properly protect your lungs as well as fit properly over glasses, you are going to want a respirator that:
How do you know if you have the proper respirator mask for the chemical or particle you are going to be exposed to? A quality respirator mask will have an N95 or N95 equivalent rating which means that it will block 95% of small particles. A small particle means somewhere around the size of 0.3 microns.
To put this into perspective, the cross-section of an average human hair is between 50-75 microns, and a human red blood cell is 5 microns. So 0.3 microns is microscopic protection for your lungs.
The filters on this half face respirator mask we recommend will be able to filter:
This respirator is a lightweight half face mask and has high-density elastic straps and adjustable ear loops to make sure the mask actually stays in the place you set it at and maintains an air-tight seal.
There is no constant adjusting while you are working. Simply put it on, put the goggles over your glasses, adjust everything to fit perfectly around your face, and forget about it.
And to make sure you get the proper mask and not a knock off, I recommend purchasing it directly from the company, especially since it comes with a 1-year factory warranty.
These respirator masks are very popular and quite often sell out. Here are the other masks we recommend from Parcil that offer the same respirator protection but are differently styled: (a full face, half face and a different half face that comes with the C-10 goggles to wear over glasses)
