But in dim light area or dark light location only glasses are not providing clear visibility.

So that, in such places, lighted safety glasses provide clear visibility. This project is to design multi functional glasses, which will have minimum production costs.Concept Design: Safety glasses with torch are provided to allow clear reading when reader is in dark light location. After thinking numerous design idea, it was concluded that a glasses would offered greatest design scope, which would represent technology and the learning outcomes.Design Description: This design contract is for a safety glasses in which lighting device is mounted. This design will be simple, multi functional, durable.Design Specification: The design will meet the following specifications-With built-in LED lights,convenient hands-free lighting  an easy on/off switch to save battery lifeMeets ANSI Z87.1 standardsEasy on/off switchManufactured out of PolycarbonateDurableLight weightCost effectiveStake holdersThere are two types of stakeholders – Internal stakeholders and External stakeholders.

Customers always choose good material, comfortable and cheaper glasses. Therefore, safety glasses’ range of cost, selection of material and comfort should be proper and adjustable.Eyewear have two main parts, frame and lenses.

Plastics, metals and wood are mainly used for manufacturing of frame. While plastic and glass are raw material of lenses. Each material has its own benefits and drawbacks.Eyeglass Frame MaterialPlasticPlastic is a very cost-effective and extremely lightweight material. It is easy to make glasses frame from plastic.

Other materials used in plastic frames include polyamide, nylon, polycarbonate, carbon and Optyl (a brand of epoxy resin). Propionate, polyamide, nylon and Optyl frames are all considered hypoallergenic. CITATION Erind1 l 1033 (Morgan, n.d.) There are some plastic material which is used for making of glasses frame:ZYL(zylonite) which is very popular material right now. The most commonly used plastic in eyeglass frames, ZYL is relatively cheaper, easy to work with, and comes in a wide variety of colours, textures, and patterns. The material is easily adjusted, but tends to get brittle with age.

Nylon-based plastic which was used in late 1940s and it is lightweight and has more transparency than other plastics. But nowadays manufacturer use blended nylon (polyamides) because nylon-based plastics are brittleness and it is difficult to adjust.. Advantages of plastic framesLightweightCost-effectiveWide variety of colours and patternsDrawbacksBreak easilyIn sunlight, strength decrease slightlyColour can fade after some timeMetalNowadays metal frame is widely used in glasses because it is stronger than plastics frame. Metal frames have a very minimalist look and are generally a lot thinner and more lightweight than the plastic glasses frames.

Monel Monel is composed of about two-thirds nickel and one-third copper. Its ability to resist stress well makes monel an excellent choice for stabilizing frame bridges and end pieces. Monel is corrosion-resistant and durable, but may cause problems for people with allergic reactions to nickel. CITATION Amy11 l 1033 (Amy Endo, 2011)TitaniumTitanium is a silver-grey metal that’s lightweight, durable, strong and corrosion-resistant but it is hard to solder or weld, and it is expensive. While titanium is known for its beneficial qualities of strength, lightness, and flexibility, it is more expensive than other metals and is restricted in its range of colours. CITATION Amynd l 1033 (Amy Endo, Frame material, n.d.)AluminiumAluminium is a lightweight and low in density.

Its cost is less than other material.AL is also corrosion resistance but it cannot be easily welded or soldered.Stainless-steelThis material is a mixture of nickel, manganese, and chromium. Qualities of stainless steel frames include light weight, low toxicity and strength; many stainless steel frames also are nickel-free and thus hypoallergenic.Advantages of metal framesstronger than other materialFlexible Corrosion resistantDrawbacksskin irritationCostly WoodWood frames are usually handmade, Wood and bone, though stiffer, less adjustable, and much more expensive than other frame materials, are appealing because of their unique beauty.

GoldSome companies make gold eyewear, typically using gold plating rather than solid gold. Generally, gold frames are used for fashion statement. It is more expensive but high flexible.Comparison of safety glasses frame materialsPropertiesMaterial Light-weight Strength Corrosion resistance Flexible Variety of colours, patterns andtextures HypoallergenicPlasticsZylonitePolycarbonate MetalTitanium Stainless steel Aluminium MonelOtherWood Gold According to the table, polycarbonate plastics materials are more reliable, cost-effective and flexible than other raw materials. So that for design of LED safety glasses nylon based plastics is a best option.Eyeglasses lenses materialLenses MaterialProperties Polycarbonate Plastics GlassUV Rays High-Impact Scratching(More resist to scratching) Less Weight Low Cost High Clarity Extreme Temperatures Some properties can consider such as temperature, resistance, weight, impact, cost and so on for choosing best lenses material. Also comparison between plastics’ and glasses’ properties give best material for lenses.

According to the above comparison, the most popular lens material for safety eyewear is polycarbonate. Polycarbonate lenses are more impact-resistant and less costly than glass lenses. While polycarbonate is a much softer lens material than glass. Even with a scratch-resistant coating, polycarbonate lenses will scratch more easily than glass lenses.
