I ve searched this but haven't found an answer so far.
I bought a pair of bi-focal safety glasses from axminster last week and while they afford good protection, im used to wearing just normal reading glasses,( buy them out of Boots and local market etc.) :shock: and find it strange having to peer over the magnified part to view normally. I
i've seen all those lovely dewalt glasses on e-bay etc but none are offered with any dioptric correction.
Does anyone know if safety glasses with total lens correction are available without going to the optician that is. I know there are many spec wearers here amongst us so maybe someone has found a source.

I don't know why you do not wish to use an optician.

When I have my eyes tested if I need new glasses ( they do a special for me so that focal length is approx arms length for woodworking ) it costs £40 for the glasses with safety polycarbonate type lense, which I think is a good deal for the correct glasses. :D :D :D

I had someone who worked for me got safety specs from an optician but declined to have the side guards as they did not look cool. He got a splinter of wood in one eye partially blinding him!

Whatever you go for, go for wrap arounds, goggles or side guards!

I use the UVEX goggles from Axminster over my normal specs, very nice and neat and comfy. I keep them in a plastic bag in a box so the dust does not collect on the inside of them.

Be safe out there everyone!
