Safety Goggles and Glasses Reviews

by Tested_to_Destruction

Using safety goggles makes good sense. Eyes are precious and flying debris ruins them. A good quality pair of safety glasses eliminates risk and potential harm.

A pair of safety goggles have one purpose - eye protection. Just like a pair of good quality ear protection equipment, protective eyewear will help prevent unnecessary accidents. Safety glasses are worn by tradesmen and home re-modelers across the nation and they're a sure fire way of providing you with the optimum protection.

You could be shredding leaves, pruning, grinding, welding - anything that involves the likelihood of flying debris should warrant the wearing of protective eyewear. It's the wise man - and woman - that maximizes safety and minimizes risk.

It's prudent, it's sensible and what's more - a good quality pair of industrial standard goggles don't cost enough to excuse their lack of use. Featured below are the five best selling goggles, all affordable, all are high quality and all will protect your eyes.

Dewalt DPG82-11C Concealer Clear Anti-Fog Dual Mold Safety Goggle

The Dewalt DPG's are the best selling safety goggles on the market. They're not the most expensive pair that money can buy but what they are is affordable, comfortable and do a good job of protecting your eyes. They're sold as anti-fog but - unless you're prepared to pay a lot more, they will fog in certain conditions.

The way around that is the old soap on the mirror trick - which prevents condensation. Simply wipe plain white non-perfumed soap on the inside lens, until it disappears. Otherwise - they're a robust manufacture and feel comfortable. They protect directly in front and to the side of the eyes. They seal nicely and the polycarbonate lens is durable. Overall, a decent quality pair, will fit over most glasses and for the price, they want buying.

Dewalt DPG54-1C Protector Clear High Performance Lightweight Protective Safety Glasses with Wraparound Frame

These are bargain priced entry level wrap around safety goggles. They're intended for lightweight protection so bear that in mind before you purchase. They come in three styles - clear, smoked and outdoor lens. The lenses are polycarbonate and pretty tough and they're incredibly lightweight at only one ounce. 

The rubber grip that's down the temple piece allows for a comfortable grip and they do fairly well when it comes to staying in place. They provide a clear view and won't distort and warp when you look beyond your immediate environment, and when it comes to eye strain and headache prevention, they do a great job. A good quality set of safety eyewear, an absolute steal at their current discount price - which means you can buy a back-up pair.

Dewalt DPG59-220C Reinforcer Rx-Bifocal 2.0 Smoke Lens High Performance Protective Safety Glasses with Rubber Temples and Protective Eyeglass Sleeve

These are the best selling tinted safety goggles - and the best you'll find in general. Wrap around and suitable for lightweight work, they're durable, comfortable and what's more - they're bi-focal safety glasses. They come in three strengths, the price remaining the same. The bi-focal feature is exceptionally good and is a surprising feature on such an inexpensive pair. 

Being tinted means that they also offer 99.9% UV protection, plus they don't distort or fog. They fit well without gripping and irritating and are great for more than just eye protection. Many are bought simply to use as tinted UV sunglasses so they have a dual aspect. Amazing quality, look great, do the job and bi-focal too. What more can anyone want for around ten bucks?
