    Just wondering what you guys use for protective eyewear?

    I tried regular wrap around sunglasses, but I found that in the shaded parts of a lawn, I can't really see all that well.
    And when I remove them and look back at my trimming, I see that I missed a lot of stuff.
    The tint is too dark.

    So I currently use clear safety glasses.

    I was thinking of trying yellow/amber lenses. Don't they generally make things really clear and give high definition?

    Any other types I should look into?

    Just curious. Thanks.

    Hi I know what you mean about sunglasses in shaded areas. I tried a new type they are made by elvex. They are grest for sun and not dark in shade areas. IMO they look good and fit good. Elvex makes mirror sun yellow and clear I have mirror sun and clear. Hope it helps

    I like shaded safety glasses vs. regular sunglasses, they are not tinted as darkly as ordinary sunglasses (at least the ones I've used). Nice to keep a pair of clear ones for the cloudy days though.

    I prefer the clear ones. I think they are the Crews Excalibur. Not fashionable, but they do the job. Plus I like the way they fit with the hearing protection earmuffs.

    I have dark, clear, and amber. Dark, of course, for the sun, clear for cloudy days, and amber for evening and early morning work. Veratti safety glasses.

    I wear some clear safety glasses that I picked up from lowes. I tried the tinted ones but I kept missing areas so I switched back to clear.
