Frequently Asked Questions
What Makes Edge’s Outdoor Eyewear Different?
Edge’s outdoor polarized sunglasses are built for more. More durability. More protection. And more style. Our shatter-resistant polycarbonate lenses, durable nylon frames and anti-slip rubberized details mean Edge’s outdoor sunglasses offer industry-leading performance, comfort and reliability.
Is Edge’s Outdoor Collection Safety Rated?
Our Revelstoke and Defiance comes with an ANSI Z87+ safety rating. While the Revelstoke and Defiance sports the highest level of safety protection, our other outdoor eyewear is not ANSI Z87 or Z87+ rated. However, the Whitikar, Harding, Highline and Renshaw are made with the same impact-resistant materials and durable frames as our legacy safety eyewear and block 99.9% of UVA, UVB and UVC rays. You can find the complete list of our products’ safety ratings here.
How Does Edge’s Outdoor Eyewear Offer Peace of Mind?
The lenses of our outdoor polarized sunglasses are constructed with a shatter-resistant polycarbonate material. When faced with the unexpected, our lenses help ensure your eyes are protected from airborne particles or flying debris. An errant cast, falling rock or outstretched tree branch is no match for our lenses that were built to defend. Edge is rooted in safety eyewear. Our vision has always been protecting yours. And our outdoor eyewear collection only continues our legacy.

What Does UV Do to Your Eyes?
Ultraviolet radiation (UV) comes from the sun and artificial light sources (including, importantly, halogen lights commonly used on jobsites) and can damage your eyes. According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, UV light can cause corneal damage, cataracts and macular degeneration–all of which lead to vision loss. We all know how important it is to use sunscreen or wear long sleeves to protect ourselves from the sun’s damage to skin (which can lead to certain cancers), but it’s just as critical to defend our eyes. Make sure to choose safety glasses that block at least 99% of UVA, UVB and UVC radiation. Whether you’re working indoors or out, these UV-blocking glasses can help preserve your eyesight and, ultimately, provide a cooling relief for your eyes.
