    sorry fellas, but i have to say this. ANY OF YOU that dont wear some sort of actual poly carb or simlar safety rated glasses are complete idiots. it is all too easy to lose an eye and then you are royally screws for the rest of your life!!!!!!!!!!!! cmon!~!!!!!!

    wear the geeky over the glasses kind if you have to, idid once----get contacts, something. think about it guys, why in the world would you chance the possiblity---and even with actual glasses that will shatter if hit hard!!!!! sorry i had to vent. gald to see so many doing the right thing, the professinal thing and wearing safety eye wear

    I'd wear over-the-glass safety glasses but I haven't found a pair I reguarly want to wear. That's the key, USING them. I've got a couple pair, but they don't seem to make it to the ZTR with me. I'm still looking for the pair that fits good enough to want to wear.

    I have used these side shields before and they're not bad. You do need prescription safety glass lenses to be completely covered however.

    I require myself and all of my helpers to wear safety glasses during the use of handheld equipment. If I ever catch those guys not using them, the owe me 20 bucks.... that usually reminds them

    Smith & Wesson Magnums for the crew and myself. They look,fit very well. Best I have found yet. I make the guys wear them anytime they are using trimmers or mowers. No excuses.

    I wear safety glasses, and provide all my workers with them. I buy my safety glasses from in quantities of 24 or greater. The ones that I currently use are:
    Elvex TNT Gray Lens Safety Glasses

    The TNT from Elvex is a low cost safety glasses that does not compromise style or comfort.
    The new TNT from Elvex features a one piece lens-frame design.
    Straight back cushioned temple arms provide a comfortable fit for extended wear.
    Hard Coated polycarbonate lens.
    99.9% UV protection.
    Lens Color: Gray - Provides protection from glare and high levels of visible light and ultraviolet radiation without distorting color perception.

    Compliance: ANSI Z87.1-2003 certified.

    Cost less than $4.00 each. They are comfortable, and if they get scratched, I discard them and grab another pair.
