    So, I admit I am definitely an l-boxx geek. Add on top of that that I am definitely somewhat of a safety nerd as well… so, I am curious what (if any) any of you guys use for eye protection…

    I wear the 3M wraparound safety glasses, clear for inside and tinted for outside.

    another 3M wrap around safety glasses, unless I am doing something crazy, then I might grab a face shield.

    I have a lot of safety glasses around, my current favorites are the Uvex ones. I also have a big face hood I use for the angle grinder. I need to get some tinted ones for outside like Chad mentioned.

    I just got some prescription glasses with safety shields. I always wear them…you only get one set of eyes and so I am not sure why anyone would take the risk and not wear them.

    If I am using the lathe I wear a face shield – when grinding overhead too.

    I like the 3m wraparound too, and then add the face shield when cutting metal. I need to pick up some more for the garage and a 3-pack for the truck so I always have them.

    A face shield or goggles for sure when on the lathe, grinding or on the chain saw. I wear glasses normally so that is all I have for normal activity in the shop. Probably should have a pair made for the shop but that is not inexpensive like non-prescription wraparound sun glasses. But as Scot says, you only get one pair of eyes.

    I always have safety glasses that I wear for sunglasses but I don’t do a good job of wearing clear glasses when indoors or low light.

    I wear prescription safety glasses and have for the last 7 months. I really enjoy having them since everything is crisp and the lenses don’t scratch like cheaper safety glasses do. They also have an anti-glare coating so I don’t get glare either. The other bonus is I always have them on so they never get lost and there’s never any temptation to make a cut without them.

    All too often, I use the squint method.

    It’s really something I need to work on.

    That being said, I have a pair of DeWalt safety glasses and another one but I forget the brand.

    I’m guilty of this as well at times. It’s just one cut, etc. I have a habit of forgetting to put glasses on. But then once I have them on, I tend to forget they are there.
