Are there "sealed" safety goggles?

I'd like to find some good sealed safety goggles that don't have the little air vent holes in them. I have to wear hard contact lenses because of an eye condition and the slightest amount of dust still causes me problems. I've used anti fog motocross goggles with some success, but ther're not really safety goggles. I need them when sandblasting or grinding.

Any ideas?

There are

They are called full face resipirators..they cover the whole face and seal like a gas mask..good for guys like you that need that extra protection..Do yourself a favor and order the tear-offs for the mask when you order..

Check with your local welding supply store...most of them carry a wide array of safety goggles of various types.

cool, I like the full face reperator/goggle idea. I do use the cartrage mask with the gogles when grinding too (keeps the black stuff out of my nose, if you know what I mean). But they don't fit well together and I can't see that well out of it.

I'll check it out, thanks.

Arrow, I second the full face design when practical for anyone with special needs pertaining to safety glasses. Having been a welder for many years I am no stranger to safety glasses and the problems often encountered when using them but they are necessary. The worst eye injury of my career ( I have had several minor mishaps in spite of safety equipment ) occurred while using a cutting torch and wearing so called "full coverage" goggles when a piece of hot concrete popped straight up from the floor, went underneath my goggles and hit me in the eye. While a full face design is not always practical it is by far the safest when it can be used.

safety glasses

Check out www.galeton.com for some ideas on different glasses and goggles. I have been using their products for quite a few years and have not been disappointed yet.
