Improperly fitted or incorrectly worn safety eyewear may not provide sufficient protection and may increase the chance of eye injury. The most common types of eye injuries include having foreign bodies such as splinters, dust or chips in the eye, as well as cuts, chemical burns, abrasions and scratches.

To address this issue, 3M has developed a fit testing system for eyewear. The 3M Eyewear Fit System is a tool used to compare different styles of eyewear worn by an individual to determine which one best fits the person.

The fit testing method includes a coverage and gap analysis tool to assess the position of the eyewear on the individual, in addition to considering other factors which influence product suitability and comfort.

In conjunction with the development of its eyewear fit system, the company has released the Maxim GT, the Fectoggle and the Virtua Sport CCS models of safety glasses and goggles that comply with AS/NZS 1337.1 for personal eye protection.
