HOYA Safety Eyewear provides the highest level of protection in prescription safety eyewear with a great range of Safety Frames exclusive to HOYA.


All HOYA Safety frames and HOYA's Phoenix lens material are certified as protection against low and medium impact in accordance with the AS/NZS 1337.6 2012 Safety Standard.



SAI Global conduct a bi-annual audit to ensure that all manufacturing processes are compliant to AS/NZS ISO 9001 requirements and inspects all records and batch testing samples conducted and retained by HOYA Lens Australia. Despite being an accredited laboratory, it remains the responsibility of Hoya Lens Australia to ensure ongoing compliance to the standard and the manufacturing requirements of all safety eyewear products.

To ensure the highest quality products HOYA Lens Australia has sought and gained accreditation with SAI Global (license number SMKH20522). The accreditation process requires that HOYA manufacture a specified number of each frame type to specified prescription parameters. These units are then independently tested by a NATA accredited laboratory, for low impact, medium impact, penetration tests at both ambient and elevated temperatures, thickness criteria and prescription accuracy. The results are forwarded to SAI global, for independent assessment.

Low impact - Protection from low energy flying fragments and small particles (frontal only) e.g.. Small steel ball of 7mm in diameter traveling at 12 m/s.
Medium impact - Frontal and side protection from medium energy flying fragments. This is the highest level of protection in spectacle format e.g. Same small ball traveling at 40m/s.

HOYA's Phoenix Lenses are used to provide a choice of Single Vision, Bifocal and Progressive lenses all standard with UV385 Super Hard Coating, the lenses also provide options for outdoor tints and Transitions. Phoenix lenses also provide the added protection of being resistant to most common chemicals and provide optimum visual clarity.
