need eye protection over specs

Hi folks,

basically I need some protection for my eyes and wear glasses.

I have seen some of the ballistic over shields but they look cumbersome and you lose some visual clarity and if im honest....not very stylish.I've been to specsavers and was offered a pair of glasses with a small side shield but this did not meet requirements needed.

has anyone got a solution?

I only have one pair of eyes and want to keep 'em safe!

thanks all

I've been going through the same, several websites offer prescription ballistic glasses, but these will cost you at least £100.

 

I've just moved over to learning to wear contact lenses!

I too have (had?) this problem, tried all sorts of stuff over my glasses until I just gave in and now wear contact lenses and ESS safety glasses.

 

I use accuvue daily lenses, they're extremely comfortable and quite cheap.

What about something like this?

Take an old pair of prescription specs, remove all the frame apart from the piece holding the lenses, and then fit them to a pair of goggles

What can I say ;) my gf was struggling to find anything that suited her small head, and she happened to have a spare set of glasses, so we trialled the idea without doing anything drastic to the glasses frame, then hacked it up when we knew it worked

if your ok with full face a good paintball mask would more than do the job, would advise a wider fitting mask like the profit or e-vent

Take a look at this thread from a short while back. We discussed various different options and costs, you might find it helpful.
