i believe you can get your perscription lenses made with safety glass. you can always put side shields on a regular pair of glasses too. I agree I don't care for that style either, I think the ones I wear now are made by nemisis and I got them at a welding supply shop.

I have been wearing prescription safety glasses for years, they have slip on side shields when needed. Actually regular glasses have to meet strict standards that meet or even exceed what you would find in most safety lens so I think it is more a frame design than anything else. An example would be small lens in wire frames which might meet the impact ratings of safety lens but would be unacceptable because of lack of coverage. My point is that some regular prescription glasses may be OK with just the addition of side shields. Whether you use regular glasses or prescription glasses be sure and have them made with polycarbonate lens because grinding and welding while wearing glass lens will destroy them in short order due to spatter sticking to them. I have never had much luck with the slip-over safety glasses but then maybe I just never tried the right ones.

back when I wore glasses I had a VERY bad experience. We were strapping a load down on the truck and my buddy was pulling on a bungy strap trying to clip it onto the tie down point.....when it sliped out of his hand and hit me square in the face.

The hook hit the lens of my glasses pushing it out of the frame and into my eye. Didnt break tho! I thank god I had my glasses on that day, other wise I may have been less one eye...

Bungee cords! I hate those damn things and there have been so many serious injuries from them I can't believe they have not been outlawed! When I ran my shop one of the guys discovered they were great for lashing down things in the tool boxes when we had to travel rough mining roads but within 6 months we had so many injuries from them breaking/slipping that I stopped their use and no longer allowed them in the shop. About the same time my wife was injured by one while trying to strap down some furniture in a truck bed. Your story is a common one but unfortunately not everyone is as lucky as you were and too many people have suffered severe eye injuries from them.

Safety glasses

Try a search for UVEX. They've got safety glasses that will fit comfortably over your prescription glasses, and they are available in clear or two different tints. Been using them for a number of years now, and they are excellent. Should be available from any safety supply company.

Lots of refining/chemical businesses have outlawed the use of slip-on side shields. Those safety glasses may look cheap, but they meet all the required OSHA and ANSI standards.

AOS also has the type that wears over your glasses among other companies that are now producing these type...always remeber..no matter WHAT type of safety glasses you use make SURE it is OSHA Z87 standard.
ALOT of the "cheepo's" are not really safe as they claim.

Here is a pair i have in my work bag i take to work with me..the AOS pair,,these are all scratched up from flopping around in my bag...lol..i rarely use this type,im in the habit of having a pair of reading glasses hangin around my neck and use them when needed in front of my regular safety glasses

I wear glasses too - PIA!

I'm nearsighted (can't see well far away) so closeup work isn't too bad (although the older I get the more I think I'll need reading specs )

I've had my eyes scraped more than once at the doctors after wearing safety glasses.

Right now IF I feel I need my glasses for work in the shop - I use a full face shield as glasses still allow flying/falling debris to get to the eyeball...

We used Oakleys w/ Prescription lenses in Iraq. You just got to sent Oakley your prescription and you can buy their lenses.

Before I had PRK Eye Surgery, I used ESS Glasses, Oakley Eye Pro, and also Native Eye Pro.

I have a few pairs like this: http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pro...0bd8c9_300.jpg

The side skirts are soft, so they don't really press on the arms of my glasses much. If you have trouble with that, you could make slits for the arms of your glasses, I guess (like ski goggles have)
