Safety glasses and shooting glasses are commonly used interchangeably. After all, both are designed to intercept fragments flying through the air and keep them from entering the eye. When you are looking for the very best shooting glasses for protection, check to what standards the glasses have been tested. The highest standards refer to ballistic testing. These glasses can cost far more ($100 per pair or more) and the circumstances in which such high level protection is needed are rare, but then again, you only get one chance to save your eyes from calamity... We do not currently offer any shooting glasses that conform to ballistic test standards. Please let us know if you would like us to add them.
