I often will use a clear full face shield when I'm working wood and one of those would protect your eyes from this sort of thing.

I've had a couple of rust rings scraped out of my eye in the past too.

After having redwood splinters removed from my eyes on several occasions (redwood leaves an oil that tissue can't heal over, sorry, TMI) this is a great thread to see. The plastic one piece "goggles" fog up too easily and quickly become useless. The glasses with the tight mesh on the sides are my current preferred option but I'm loving the full face shield-sounds great at deflecting bits of rivets from mouths, nostrils and eyes while lying on your back.

At this point I might just hire another person to do the drilling and anything else that might get you into the optometrist anytime soon. 

The machine shops I've worked in all required safety glasses at all times and add a face shield to use a grinder. A ball cap was very useful for keeping the flying chips from coming over the top of your safety glasses.

Also I was advised years ago to never go to an emergency room with something in your eye. They just don't have the training and equipment an eye doctor does. And yes I was there this morning and he used a little mini Dremel tool to buff the rust spot.

Frank, I'd echo the full face shield when grinding or cutting over a set of nice fitting safety glasses or if you're really trying to avoid another trip in, a pair of swim goggles

Face shields don't work too well when you are on your back under a trailer drilling holes. Also anything with gaps will let stuff fall in your eyes.

Anyone ever try what the divers use to eliminate 'fogging'? Be careful, no Beechnut before.. DAMHIK.

I use RainX anti-fog solution. An old divers trick is to use a little dish washing soap on the lens & rinse off.

okay this worked for me and in the Maryland heat where I did a lot of overhead work. I bill type tennis hat with the terry cloth sweat band reduces the target area from 4 inches to 3/4 of an inch but the down side is under or on your back overhead work it becomes a funnel at which time a doo rag or bandana takes the forehead bounce out and helps a bit. face shields are only good if you use them and since they hamper conversation (asking for anything) and make staying hydrated difficult we tend to not always use them (like hearing muffs). hard hats have a 3/4 bill on them to help deflect objects. I will normally use a doo rag with the band near my eyes when on my back and have had a finger in my eye but no aluminum holes slag or broken nuts, or rust flakes. Just my 2 cents. Safer can be a bother but long waits in the emergency room and the explanation to just about every equals more of a bother.

I wore them all day, even out the door to lunch. The optics are excellent. Michael kept telling me "those are so cool" The shields fully wrap the sides and the arms are totally adjustable via two screws. The down side is some trend called steampunk. This trend makes them "collectible." Who collects safety glasses? I know everyone needs a hobby, but give me a break, safety glass are a thing to collect?
