Why can't I use my regular glasses as safety glasses?

All-around eye protection

Both your regular “street” glasses and safety eye glasses can protect your baby blues from stuff that comes directly at them . Safety glasses, however, are designed to protect your eyes from airborne particles that can sneak into your eyes from the side or over the top of your lenses. What's more, protective eyewear is designed for a tougher work environment, and must meet rigorous ANSI standards for strength and durability. Take a look at the Pyramex Venture II safety glasses at the link above. They are one of the most form fitting and comfortable safety glass on the market.
