Australian World First – An affordable and superior prescription Safety Eyewear System- exclusively available at Eyelines

Brisbane based New Eye Company has released a patented prescript-able safety eyewear system that enables users to simply release the scripted lenses from their frames and re-insert them into new protective frames should the need arise.

“There is nothing like this in the world. One corrective foil can fit every pair in the IC Safety System range".

Mr. Andy Mehringer, Managing Director, a certified optician and developer of the IC Safety System says the new safety eyewear system will save money for wearers and organisations that provide their employees with safety glasses.

“Our Safety eyewear System typically halves the cost of optical prescription safety glasses that are used routinely by workers to protect their eyes from injuries, and make safety eyewear affordable for everyone. A major advantage of the system is that it virtually eliminates the need for replacement lenses.”


In May 2011, Andy Mehringer, inventor and founder of New Eye Co, went on to win the ABC Show’s “The New Inventors” award for 2011.

At the same time New Eye Company commenced local distribution to corporate clients including Downer EDI Mining, Rio Tinto, QR National, Origin Energy, Arnott’s and many other big-name Australian organizations in a growing client list including over 450 Australian corporate clients.

Following local Australian successes, New Eye Company is expanding its operations into the USA, Europe, Canada and Russia in 2015-2016. Andy also secured funding from 3 Investors on the Television series Shark Tank in 2015 enabling him to take his innovative invention to the World.

Eyelines Tasmania is proud to have been chosen as exclusive supplier of these glasses in Tasmania.


Your company or business typically purchases a box of IC Safety Eyewear Frames from Eyelines Tasmania and arranges for prescription lenses to be made to meet the vision needs of your individual employees. On receipt of their scripted Astralon™ Foil inserts, employees choose a lens colour and insert their prescription foils into place. Should their safety frames or outer lenses become damaged or scratched, they simply remove the prescription Foil and insert it into a new pair of IC Safety Frames. There is no wait time, there is no time off the job.

With a life-time warranty, the Astralon™ Foil inserts accommodate single vision, bifocal or multi-focal lenses, and can be inserted into the entire range of IC Safety Eyewear System.


IC Safety frames start from as little as $19 each. They are easy to dispose should they damage and the beauty of this superior quality product and innovative lens foil is that the investment piece, the prescription lens, slot straight into another frame. No expensive costs of replacing both frames and lenses, no wait time and your employee can get straight back on the job site.


An Eyelines Optical Dispenser can visit you on site with samples and demonstrate how the system works and how much your business could potentially save.
