    I have prescription safety glasses I paid an arm and a leg for and I like them better than any "generic" safety glasses I have ever used. I wear them from the time I get out of the van until I get back in.

    Harbor Freight Cheap-os.

    They cost me about $4 a pair and I usually buy the dark ones and wear them as sunglasses.

    I don't wear them ALL the time, although I know that I should.

    Here's what we have:

    Clear and dark, grab them by the handfuls and they last 3-4 weeks each. I have been hit square in the glasses a few times and they hold up.

    We use ones from MCRSafety. Most of the guys including myself use the "Tribal" model. They come in clear and shaded lenses. I really like em.

    I have safety frames with snap on side guards, the Dr said I could only get transition and bifocal. He thought he should make the bifocal a little higher then normal. I hated them, now I have non safety transitions, with progressive lenses and they are nice. Only problem with transitions is they turn black on a roof, if you look inside the blower compartment you can not see very well, I have to keep a set of clear glasses with me as well.

    I had transitions for a week when they first came out and I returned them. I need bifocals, but I don't have them. I keep a pair of cheap reading glasses with me if I need them.

    I had eye surgery and told to only wear Bolle as they are superior UV filtering lenses. Worn them for nine years every day. Different class.
    Bolle Viper Smoked lens (Blue) safety gasses.

    By coincidence, just took delivery of seven pair, just in case they discontinue them.

    I wear Elvex RX-300, they have a bi-focal in the bottom of the lens, and come tinted or untinted. When they get all scratched up I toss them. I buy them on-line from SafetyGlassesUSA dot com

    I traded out with an opthamologists for him to check my prescription and hook me up with safety rated glasses.

    They are made by Bolle and are wrap style sunglasses frames with clear lenses that transition very quickly from completely clear to shaded but not super dark shaded like real sunglasses, just enough to knock down the sun so I don't squint but can still see if I pop into a crawl hole or something. I've loved them so far and also wear them cycling, I recommend getting a neoprene strap that will snug your glasses against your head if you are doing something where they could fall a long ways or you are moving very quickly.

    It might look a little different but when you're covered in oil, pipe dope, grease, etc, it's not like your safety glasses and strap will make a difference.

    Had I paid for them it would have been in the $600 range.
