Our company provides the cheap glasses. I usually go through 1 every couple of weeks. New construction & have to wear them full time. Shaving cream helps improve some fogging issues. Doesn’t work on all glasses though.

This week one of my guys was standing on an upper deck next to the carpenters while they were cutting wood and the wind blew sawdust in his eyes. He was wearing his glasses but it got around them. Things happen so fast sometimes.

I find that in some cases safety glasses make it worse. When the wind blows past your glasses the turbulence often causes the saw dust to get sucked behind the lense.


Friday after noon I was replacing a faucet. This one was pretty easy and I didn't have the usual constant falling dried out putty pieces. One tiny piece of the mdf countertop fell into my left eye. Made the rest of my already terrible day hell.


When I know there will be tons of crap falling I wear safety glasses when changing a faucet. But with this one everything was clean and there was no putty, lulled me into a false sense of security.

I think it is worth it to go overboard with regards to safety. I have an expensive pair of Smith brand glasses for the range, supposedly rated to stop a .22 short, as well as a pair of Glock Perfection© eyes. I have a huge beg of ear foamies and harbor freight glasses that I leave in strategic places for myself or others. I am cpr and first aid certified and am taking more classes. They say you really want a firearm when you need it, this is also true of first aid kits and fire extinguishers, and those are more likely to see use!
