Goggles instead of safety glasses?

Anybody have a source for good shop goggles? Last couple times I've done lots of grinding, I got several sparks in my eyes, despite wearing safety glasses with top, bottom and side shields. And twice, one has managed to stay lodged in my eye unable to be flushed out. Right now I am holding one eye shut with tears constantly dripping off my chin This is fawking annoying! I tried flushing it out for about 10 minutes, tried wiping it off, pain killers, tried sleeping. I think I'm just gonna stand in the shower all night with my eyelid taped open...

do not fuck around, get to the dr, even the emergency room! metal rust right away in your eye and you can lose your site!
I use a full face mask, I've used goggles, they can fogg, but I still got a piece in there a dr had to remove ( $$ ) it must have fallen in from my eyebrows or something.....

Cool, thanks Corey.

And for you stupid newbie, I wanna see how you handle a miniature rotary rasp taken to your eye I finally had the pieces of metal removed today, and they had to drill out the rust that was left dead center in my eye.
Now go lay down on the freeway or something

additional text

A couple years ago my wife gave me some for Christmas. They look goofy, but they are comfy and good. Came with clear and dark glass. Made in germany, chrome plated steel, individual goggles for each eye, with screw in round caps to retain the safety glass. Leather covered padding for each eye and tiny louvers to let air in/out to avoid fogging.

Dunno what they are called, but she got them from Restoration Hardware. I just searched their site and found them - 9.99, on sale listed as "German Goggles" and says they are made for metal working - but - since the glass is clear - not welding!! Duh.

Wore them for an hour or two last night grinding, wire wheeling and flap discing a frame. I love them, and would recommend them highly.

Edit: mine came with dark glass too, but apparently they aren't offered that way anymore?

Thank you! I was hoping to see something like this out of this thread. Even with safety glasses and a face shield, working in the shop brings new meaning to "disposable" contacts. I'm ordering some of those goggles to try them.

They do look dorky, but I like the geek factor. When I go in to kiss the kids goodnight after an hour or two under the rig with my whole face except the area around my eyes covered with dust, grime etc....

I wear the goggles instead of the glasses too. You know, the cheap kind you wore in high school chemisty class with the elastic band and all. Got sick of crap falling into my eyes from the sides and what not with the glasses.

Ditto on the face shield. I use the face shield at the bench gringer ever since we had a guy loose an eye from a wire wheel schard imbedding itself into his cornea. If i'm under the truck or cramped quarters, I use some well vented uvex goggles, they look ghey, and they are hot, but I am partial to my ojos!!!

i don't wear goggles, but rather low profile safety glasses(they look like sunglasses) that pretty much hug up against my eyes. haven't gotten anything in there since i've started wearing them, MUCH better than using regular glasses with side guards

i use the regular safty glases, i do wear regualr seeing glasses to... But on the part about stuff getting in your face AFTER your done... Ive had it happen a few times and been luck to get it out (12 hours was the longest)

i make a habbit of getting a blue paper towel closing my eyes and lightly dust moping my head and face off to get anything loose off me...

I do have my face shield for when stuff is shooting right at me.

And for what i waste on other useless garage junk, i always have several extra pairs even a few new ones for the occasional cry baby...
