The Best Safety Glasses
Updated Dec 12, 2022
Safety glasses are standard stock at metal shops and construction sites. But they are also helpful for countless activities around the home—from dusting a high shelf to weeding—that can send errant debris flying directly into your delicate eyes. A good pair of safety glasses will protect your peepers and be comfortable to wear, but the best pair is a lot like the best face mask: It’s the one you’ll actually use regularly and not fuss with. After researching and testing 27 pairs of safety glasses, and consulting with an ophthalmologic surgeon, a professional racquetball player, and dozens of robot builders, we think the Radians MR0111ID Mirage is the pair most people will wear most of the time. If you already wear prescription glasses, the HexArmor LT250 will be the least distracting over your frames.
