    Yeah I’m fine, the only pain I had was during the time it took to get to the eye Dr. and I would close my eyelid which would cut the lid.

    I never wore eye protection…… until I had a 1/2 inch wire from a wire brush stuck in my eyeball.

    Ouch, did you heal up ok? Those are deceivingly dangerous, the first time I used one I had a wire go all the way through a pair of jeans and into my thigh and from then on learned pretty quick where to stand and to cover up. I’m much more careful with them now but honestly never had a clue until I had a near miss.

    I’m just saying, i wouldn’t be too quick to dismiss it as a marketing tactic.

    The safety glasses I wear are nice because you can simply replace the lenses. Is one gets that bad, I’ll pay the money for new lenses.

    One of the local stores has them readily available. I use ESS CDI glasses and lenses. You can find them for good prices.

    Cool, I wasn’t aware they made those. I am use to seeing the disposable kind.

    I like them a lot and have been using them for the last 5 years.

    I can get just one RX lens replaced too if needed. I’ve used my safety sunglasses windsurfing in big surf and had a lens get blown out and ordered a new one.

    Safety squint for me too. But i make my help wear glasses. The only time I’ve gotten anything in my eye was when i was wearing glasses. Bounced off my cheek, ricochet against the glasses and into my eye

    I know a guy that caught a tico nail with the safety squint on. He’s now a one eyed carpenter.

    Face shield for me when using saws. I’m done getting metal shavings flying into my eye when wearing just plain eyeglasses.

    I got a set of Bosch glasses in the pinner I got. The glasses actually have pretty good clarity, and the slight wrap around isn’t distorted like a lot of curved lenses, pretty happy with them.

    The distortion is the major reason i don’t wear glasses. i don’t feel as safe on my feet while wearing them. Might feel better if i had safety prescription glasses but i don’t wear scrips for work, only driving (and hunting or checking out chicks from a distance, whata perv)

    That’s pretty cool. Nice that they throw them in the box like that.

    Replacing the lenses is a great idea. I had bought a really nice set of DeWalt wraparound ones a while back and while I do like them they scratched way too easily. They weren’t cheap either.

    Other than 3M, which company makes a good safety goggle ?

    Prescription safety glasses for me. Can’t stand cheapo ones. Once I’d get soreness from wearing cheapies, I would discard them and tend to keep working and that’s not a good thing.
