Eye protection

Good morning. Looking for suggestions for protective eyewear. I need something that fits over prescription glass. I have been fairly unsuccessful in finding something good. The anti foggers will fog and the anti scratchers will scratch. Any leads or suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    How about a pair of prescription safety glasses? I'm not a fan of coatings. You can get them in Polycarbonate or Glass. Glass safety glasses are very scratch resistant and have excellent optical qualities. They are able to meet impact requirements by being thicker and heat treated. Downside is they are heavy.

    If you need bifocals, don't do mail order. Have a local optician fit you with the frames on your face. This is necessary to properly place the reading portion of the lens.

    I would go with prescription safety glasses my self.
    Google them and try to find a pair you like the look of and go from there.

    I need to get another pair my self.

    After you make that expensive repair and you still have the same problem, What will you check next?
