The first year I mowed, I wore safety glasses. They worked OK but when things got dry, I found after about ten lawns my eyes looked like I had been rubbing them with sandpaper. Now, I wear a pair of Scott goggles (same ones I use on my ATV when I ride) and what a difference. Some of the other LCO's probably laugh when they see me mowing but I could care less. Try em, you'll like em!
