ESS Receives DOD Authorization for the P-2 Prescription Lens Insert System

Eye Safety Systems, Inc. (ESS) has released the P-2 TM Rx Insert corrective vision system. The P-2 Rx Insert is designed for integration with the ESS ICE TM series spectacles and the ESS Profile NVG TM series goggles, both of which are listed on the US Army and USMC lists of authorized eye protection. This corrective lens system is the first of its kind to be compatible across goggle and spectacle platforms, and it has also been authorized for use by the US Army and US Marine Corps.

The P-2 Rx Insert has a robust design with characteristics well suited for military applications:

  • High-impact nylon construction exceeds the impact requirements of MIL-STD-662F and MIL-PRF-31013
  • Rx lenses can be cut using conventional edging machines
  • Accommodates a range of corrections to +/-11: well beyond the DOD standards
  • Includes a rigid storage case with goggle and spectacle adapters

The initial shipments of the P-2 Rx Inserts will be supplied to Marines deploying for Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom in December 2004 and January 2005.

The ESS P-2 Rx Lens Insert (Model #EPPRSC-P) is available for immediate purchase through the National Stock Number system (NSN: 4240-01-525-4784), AAFES/MCSS stores, GSA, and ESS dealers worldwide. ESS recommends the use of polycarbonate as the corrective lens material because of its excellent impact resistance.
