I buy safety glasses at local lawnmower shops....Stihl makes some good ones....cheap and large lenses with side s on them they work up to 70 or so after that gogles are the best bet.

BTW...they make stylish looking safety glasses .

Check out guard dogs. Got a set that would fit over the mrs. glasses. I personally use some Oakleys.

Thanks Guys.....Am trying safety glasses wed. to see if that frame style works for me......was thinking about Oakleys....but didn't want to throw out 100 for testing......(already have the safety glasses in my toolbox so can test for free with those)...... I have a question..........What's a guard dog
