Yes, if it includes the other end of the spectrum. I wear glasses from the children's sizes, and the ones that fit are made for kids ages 4 - 7. No standard safety goggles in adult sizes can possibly fit well enough on my face to actually act splash guard. I spent many months trying to find a small enough size, and did find them at Flinn Scientific, but they don't (or didn't then) appear in their catalog or the online catalog, but I got one of those postcard ads from them for them, and they fit. In talking to them, they told me that most companies that sell safety goggles have them, but the demand is so low that they don't put them in the catalogs or online catalogs.


I've had many students over the years whose heads were as small as mine, and had to special order goggles for them to get ones that actually fit. (and they won't protect from splashes if they don't seal to the face.)
