  • Cheap Prescription Safety Glasses

    Where is a good, online place to buy a few pairs of prescription safety glasses? The ones through the optometrist are way too expensive. I would like to have a few pairs.

    THank you!

      There is a place online where you can get them cheap. I had it bookmarked until a few weeks ago when I screwed up the laptop by doing an upgrade using a technique that was not recommended.

      If I recall correctly, the standard prescription glasses were $25. Try http://www.zennioptical.com. It has some good prices.

      Keep searching and you will find them.

      At the end of the project, there is a profound difference between spare parts and left over parts.

        I recently got a set from costco and am very pleased with them.

        However I'm still looking for a set with the old style "can run them over with a tank" frames.

          Hi,

          Prescription safety glasses are never as cheap as plain safety glasses. I have used this company with good results https://www.rx-safety.com/

          They are quick and the prescriptions accurate.

          If you think you understand what is going on, you haven't been paying attention.

            I've been getting my glasses from Zenni for years, and rarely wear protection other than them in the shop. But I've heard things that normal plastic lenses are not shatterproof. Any intel on that?

              Kids lenses are polycarbonate so perhaps you could get those. I bought some for my kid at Zenni

                +1 for Zenni. Used then for years with complete satisfaction. I saw a video of their production process somewhere recently and was amazed.

                  Just make sure they are ANSI approved. If not at least Z87.1 then not worth getting.

                    Different plastics have different properties. Some even shatter with sharp shards! Safety glasses use materials that are not electrically conductive and that will not cause damage if they are struck by something. Polycarbonate is often used. Here's a good page that describes the differences. Note the reference to Z87.1 ANSI standard for impact resistance. Normal prescription lenses don't pass that standard.
