Top Customer Reviews
I didn't seen any point in returning these, so I used a heat gun to bend the glasses to a symmetric shape, which was about 95% effective. They fit relatively well, and seem to be rather durable. The plastic lenses are crystal clear.
I would hope that few people are actually sent defective glasses like this, however it casts doubt on their quality assurance process for me. I am surprised that somebody thought it would be a good idea to ship these to me, when the already open bag seems to suggest they were already a return item from another customer.
However, I have noticed that the anti fog coating has started to come off in one area (looks like a shellac chipping off), probably due to the disinfecting wipes we use.
These are great glasses for a great price, however, they may have a limited life if you are disinfecting them with chemicals. At this price, I'd give them a shot. I'm still wearing mine since the coating is coming off in an area that doesn't obscure my vision.
Hope this review was helpful in your decision. If there are questions or if there is anything I can clarify, please leave me a comment.
The lens is not a true zero-power optic. This is the case for many low-end safety glasses however these are noticeably more so than my DeWalt glasses. I'd guess the magnification power is about +0.5 diopter. Over time this is enough to cause eye strain for some people or a slight nausea if you move around a lot. Also the lenses are not anti-reflection coated which causes some annoying internal reflections and reduces the optical quality especially around bright lights.
These same glasses can sell for $5 - $10 elsewhere, and compared to other glasses selling in the same price range, these are just as good. I like them because they fit my large-ish head well, and the optics are clear for a cheap set of glasses. I use them in a woodshop, and they could fall to a concrete floor, so I don't want an expensive set of safety glasses. I want one that does the job when needed, and have plenty of them in different locations so they are convenient to access, and I won't stress if they get dropped. Plus, my two sons help me in the woodshop at times, and having extra pairs are a must. We also use them if we go shooting, as well as any other home repair job, so they serve double and triple duty. I keep these in multiple places for many needs in addition to the woodshop.
There are plenty of choices for safety glasses, and just as many price points. You can spend as much as you want - it all depends on your needs. If you need a set that stays on your head for 8 hours a day, are a critical component to your job, and need to be scratch/fog resistant and have perfect optics - look elsewhere, these won't meet those requirements. But, if you want a serviceable set of safety glasses that do the job on a temporary basis, and won't break the bank - give these a look. Heck, for $1.83, even if you hate them you are only out a cup of coffee! These glasses fall into the no-brainer category if you are looking for bang for the buck.
Thanks for reading.
They sit close against the face, which seems to make back-reflections less noticeable (an AR coating would be nice, but might be kind of a tall order at this price point). They don't have the weight and bulk of the old style I used to use (mostly family hand-me-downs), and the frame is flexible enough so that they fit comfortably on my somewhat oversized head. Other safety glasses tend to dig in and make my head hurt, and I find myself unconsciously taking them off all the time. With these I have the opposite problem -- I forget they're still attached to me and I go out into public with them on my head.
If you're one of those people who tends to skip on safety glasses because they're uncomfortable or you've misplaced them, get a bulk pack of these and scatter them around your work areas. At less than two bucks a piece it's a no-brainer.
