It comes without surprise that face shields are getting increasingly popular of late, one of them being Polaroid Eyewear’s fresh new device made in collaboration with Safilo. Coined the Staysafe Visor, these face shields are easy to clean (and disinfect), and are equipped with an adjustable Polaroid-branded headband that ensures a comfortable fit while providing maximum protection at all times. They also come with EN166 certification, which translates to it being suitable for professional use in the medical field, along with a curvature visor that contains anti-fogging properties.
Now, before you start lapping up Polaroid’s Staysafe Visor to replace your iffy masks that never fit well, do note that it is still mandatory for you to wear a face mask (one that completely covers the nose and mouth) whenever you head outside of your home in Singapore. Only children below the age of 12 who have difficulty wearing and keeping face masks on for prolonged periods, and persons with breathing difficulties when a mask is worn for extended timeframes will be allowed to wear face shields alone.
You could also choose to wear the Staysafe Visor along with your face mask for extra protection, especially when it forms an additional barrier that will also be useful to those who like to keep touching their faces. You can purchase them from Polaroid Singapore, who has options for adults and kids priced at SGD38 and SGD35 respectively after discount. Delivery will be an extra SGD4 for local orders, or you can find them at speciality sites like OhHappyFry if you wish to get it together with other goodies for your home/young ones.
