    Looking at buying a pair of safety glasses

    I have not worn safety glasses on the job before (yeah like since 1987) Ok so I am reading some of the threads here and I see that it is one of the must haves in the field. I am looking at the ICE Naro Eyeshields. Has anyone tried them and if so are they worth the money?
