Hi Koby,


Since you are inquiring for high school students, I'm guessing your students will be wearing these for no more than 1hr at a time. So, the "low end" eye wear will be comfortable enough for an hour. As I looked for links to include, I noticed many places are out of stock. Probably a side effect of the pandemic. So, you may have to resort to buying in bulk and rolling the cost into the students' technology/book fees.


For physics, you can likely get away with safety glasses. I recently got my first pair of prescription glasses. So, I linked my old and my new styles below. I've worn these for 8hr shifts and most of the time I forget I even have them on.


Over glasses:


For goggles, I'll defer back to my undergrad years. The goggle style linked below was comfortable enough to wear for 4hrs at a time. The tendency to fog is related to the venting type (ventless, direct, indirect). You'll need to take a close look at the experiments planned and decide what venting type you'll require. Some brands, like the one linked here, do offer anti-fog lenses.


If most of your students tend to take all three science courses during their time in high school, you could have them purchase a pair of safety goggles rated for both splash and impact.


Indirect vented:


Thank you,


Yaritza Brinker

Hello EveryoneÑ


We're requiring our students to buy their own safety goggles next year because of the pandemic. I'm wondering if anyone has recommendations for goggles that are comfortable, do not fog up, and fit well even over eyeglasses. We'll be using these in chem, bio, and environmental science classes. I teach at a private high school.


Also, any recommendations for safety glasses for our physics classes?



Thank you,
