Thanks, Ironworker. Found some good stuff there. Never even knew there was such a thing as "dual-bifocal lenses". That might be just the ticket for different angles of viewing the workpiece.

You have to start somewhere to get to the middle of nowhere.

i had no idea when i started this that this much info would be shared. thanks very much guys. i hope others will look at this and take it somewhat seriously. i've never been a huge fan of safety glasses or shields but i guess this made me think about it that much more. metal in the eye just plain sucks.

I use the wrap arounds and full face shield in most applications and have found it to work best for me. Oh and safety glasses under the welding hood also.

I have some from work that I really like, i'll have to get the name but the have a little rubber gasket that fits to your face kinda like some swimming goggles. Very good protection and I can't recall a moment where anything got in my eye since wearing them.

I'm a Wiley X fan. Got a pair prior to going to Iraq and still have them after 5 years and acquired a second pair. Like any other brand I would go somewhere you can try them on vice buying online.

I too like the wiley X brand after using them in the desert. At work we are given a choice between 3 types. a regular pair, a rubber sealed version with a strap and a rubber seal with arms. Anytime i am using equipment that puts things into the air I preferr the rubber style with arms. The strap style fogs up quickly and the regular ones dont do squat to stop airporn particles/small shards.

Only safety glasses for me. That is something to be considered. I might have to look into a full face shield.
