I've been using the cheater safety glasses too, and I really like them. I buy them on Amazon in 5 packs for $35 shipped (just $7 each). The optical quality is excellent, and they last me about 9 months per pair before the lenses are too pockmarked and become hazy and annoying. Then I just open up a new pair. They are so comfortable that I never take them off. If I go somewhere "fancy" I have to try to remember to put on my "real people" glasses.I have been using safety glasses with cheater magnifiers in the bottom of them. I only need my glasses for seeing things that are distant and for reading, so the cheater style safety glasses work just fine for me.
There are many internet order places for prescription glasses, just order a pair or 2 of safety glasses with your scripts. You'll be glad you did. A lot cheaper than the store.Wearing prescription glasses makes safety glasses with good coverage hard to find that don't fog or cause vision problems, so I have been using a full face shield. Anyone have a better idea?
No, he wasn't. That event made a big impression on me years ago, and in my world, glasses are good, but a full shield is better. They aren't expensive, especially when compared to medical bills or replacing an eyeball. Besides, it's kind of fun to watch sparks from a grinder bounce off the shield.Was your friend wearing safety glasses?
Just use ear plugs instead. I actually use the silicone type that you knead together and cure inside your ear for a custom-fit. $14 at Gander.Yep, I bought a full face shield, then discovered I couldn't wear it with ear protectors. The head bands conflict with each other. So it hangs on a nail, unused. I do reply on eye googles all the time.
