March 1, 2013 - EYE PRO, Inc., world leader in eyewear and makers of WINK-EASE, VIEWkeepers, Fresh-Ease, and Wink-Ease Dark, is helping educate salons on the importance of proper eye protection.
“We love to help salons educate their customers on proper eye protection. Salons want to make sure their customers are using the correct protection for each specific salon treatment,” said EYE PRO President Brenda Fishbaugh. “As a salon owner/employee, it’s very important that you make sure you pay attention to the details,” she continued.
Fishbaugh recommends Wink-Ease Dark eye protection for red light sessions because its dark material helps with the extreme bright lights. Fishbaugh also recommends original Wink-Ease and Viewkeeper disposable eye protection products as “fantastic for regular and high pressure tanning.”
“Don’t forget about protecting the salon technician as well,” reminded Fishbaugh. “When changing lamps in the bed, it is very important to protect your eyes, and our UV Blockers are a great and inexpensive solution,” she continued. Fishbaugh also suggests UV Blockers as perfect for spray tan techs to protect their eyes. “And, there’s now a new clear disposable eye protection for spray tanning available,” explained Fishbaugh. “We want to protect our industry and make sure we are taking the FDA recommendations seriously in our salons.” “Protecting clients’ eyes is what EYE PRO has done for 20+ years and I take my job very seriously,” said Fishbaugh. “We only get one set of eyes — so it is SO important to protect them!” she concluded.
Fishbaugh offered other ideas to help salons educate clients on the importance of eye safety. She recommends salons asking clients to see their eye protection when checking in. This helps show customers that, as a salon, you take eye protection seriously. If the client has damaged goggles, offer them a discount ($1.00 off) a new pair – or some other incentive. Many salons are writing the date on disposable eye protection liner so their client cannot use the same pair over and over. Eye Pro offers a one-time use letter on its website (EyePro.net) under the “Tips for Salon Owners” tab that salons may download for free, print out and put on display. Fishbaugh also suggests being sure salon staff wear and demonstrate eye protection, because It’s much easier to sell and explain eye protection to the customer when all of the staff knows how it fits and how to use it.
