Default Safety Glasses

Good morning all.

I will be ordering a few items from the Amazon Canada site and was wondering if you would be so kind as to recommend a pair of safety glasses. Much appreciated.

Peter

Peter; no particular recommendation from me, but my own personal gripe is the fogging up of the glasses when I'm wearing an N95 dust mask. Some of the members have sprung for the ventilated face shields, they swear by them.
I take it you don't need prescription glasses for near distances?

Hard to say what brand but just make sure that they have the appropriate certification by a reputable agency as Underwriter's Laboratories (US) or Canada Standards Association. I have seen products that carry certification by both agencies. Cost might be immaterial as the lens will the part where you need the safety factor. I'm sure your fellow Canadians can help here with more information.

I don't know if you wear glasses but these ones are the only ones that fit comfortably over mine: https://www.amazon.com/Honeywell-T18.../dp/B004HMGCY0 I've gotten them cheaper than that price before.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

You can order several types of prescription lenses that are shatter resistant and suited for shop use. I have a pair or two of these with progressive prescriptions for my far sightedness. Hard for me to see up close without them.

I have the Rockler ventilated dust maske (pix) that expels air over my cheeks, which clears any condensation on the lenses. I keep two sets of rechargable batteries ready to go. Each lasts about 3 hours. I really like having the positive pressure, filtered air that keeps all dust out. Fits nicely despite my considerable Gaulish proboscus.

Thank you for the prompt reply @DaninVan . Actually, I do have to wear reading glasses. Hadn't thought of that. Should I be looking for safety glasses that will accommodate my reading glasses.

That look like quite the setup there Doctor @DesertRatTom

Thank you for chiming in. Peter

You can get plain safety glasses with what are called plus adds. Bifocals, but without any prescription for far, just for near. https://www.amazon.com/Uvex-S3760-Ma...ty+glasses+1.0

Order the one with the same power in the bifocal add as your reading glasses
