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.February 4, 2014 at 4:13 pm #86413
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.February 4, 2014 at 4:17 pm #86415
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.February 5, 2014 at 7:02 am #86623
where do you get the new lenses from?February 5, 2014 at 8:49 am #86674
One of the local stores has them readily available. I use ESS CDI glasses and lenses. You can find them for good prices.February 5, 2014 at 8:52 am #86677
Cool, I wasn’t aware they made those. I am use to seeing the disposable kind.February 5, 2014 at 5:31 pm #86871
I like them a lot and have been using them for the last 5 years.February 6, 2014 at 12:06 am #87015DirtyWhiteBoyProHonolulu,, Hi.
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 eyeMay 1, 2014 at 12:04 am #126344DirtyWhiteBoyProHonolulu,, Hi.

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.

oh no, please spare the details of the removing metal in the eye procedure. thanks!May 1, 2014 at 12:34 pm #126564thedude306ModeratorFoam Lake, SK
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)May 1, 2014 at 8:06 pm #126765RSGProNiles, OH
I use the Dewalt Router Safety Galsses. they fit me well and are comfortable anf or only around $10 a pairMay 2, 2014 at 8:17 pm #127146

That’s pretty cool. Nice that they throw them in the box like that.May 2, 2014 at 8:40 pm #127167mattryycProCalgary, Alberta
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.May 5, 2014 at 8:20 pm #128248
i thought about getting a pair of those dewalt glasses a couple times but havent pulled the trigger on them yet. maybe i will pass given your feedback.June 11, 2015 at 11:33 pm #350585rylimProMissouri City, Texas
Other than 3M, which company makes a good safety goggle ?June 11, 2015 at 11:39 pm #350590DoobieModerator
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.
