I use several different types at work and home.,.but i get them for free from the jobs,I'm an International Ironworker,they are required to supply them...Smith and Wesson...Pyramex..Jackson..Huntsman...etc are to name a few.
Watch buying any so called safety glasses at regular stores,if they don't have ANSI Z87.1 on them,they are cheap and could be dangerous if impacted by a flying object.
Z87.1 means it has a Polycarbonate impregnated in them..just about impossible to break the lens,plus gives 99.9% protection from UV and IR rays while welding or the sun,the dark lens Z87.1 is 100% UV and IR protection.

As far as Anit-Fog glasses,,might be some out there,but i've never seen or used them,you can buy an Anti-Fog lens cleaner for them though,works good too,i use it on my welding shield's lens in the winter when everything fogs up from being cold and then you're warm breath is breathing inside the shield foggin up the lens..lol

PM me you're address if you like..i can send you a few pair of GOOD safety glasses for free if you want,i get them free at work and have a bunch laying around here at the house still in the package...

For most grinding I now use a full face shield. Eliminates most of the sweat and condensation problems AND it'll protect that beautiful mug of yours.

BTW, SuthnCustoms means what he says. A couple years back he sent me a huge "care package" including a high end regulator for my mig tank along with safety glasses, a welding jacket, and a wide assortment of burrs and sanding disks. I felt like it was Christmas in July.
