    Last summer I finally realized that I didn't need to be wearing my precription glasses. I can see fine! But after years of having them as protection (somewhat) I knew I needed something over my eyes.

    I ended up getting the "OCC" saftey glasses from Lowes. I have 2 pair of the red tinted ones, no they don't make everything look red... They are $30 but I like them because unlike cheapo saftey glasses these can be adjusted to fit properly. I also keep a couple pair of the bluish/clear ones handy for mowing on cloudy dark days, and also for working in the shop.

    I've tried cheapos and expensive safety glasses and realized I tear them up all the same. I go through a pair once a month, after a while they just get pitted and scratched badly.

    I've split my lips more than a couple of times, and I love taking a rocks in the legs, nothing like doubling over in pain for a couple of minutes on a job site.

    Safety sunglasses from Stihl, blue, and some other colors, I think I have like 10 of them?? I like to lay them down everywhere. Plus, they fit tight to your head so they won't come off due to sweat and shaking around.
