👓 Eye-savers! (eye shield adapter for your spectacles)

During the making of the face-sheilds for COVID era I picked up some face shield material recommended somewhere in the glowforge threads, but then never used it as I had a stormtrooper helmet for work, (which now looks like the melted darth vader mask)

For meetings wearing double glasses is a drag / and foggy, so I designed / made these. I can’t tell you if they work to keep the COVID away, so use it at your own risk, or make better ones!!!

Well now, that is one of the most useful designs I’ve seen shared in a long time. Thank you very much! I think I will be making some today.

I doubt if they keep virii away but they could certainly shield your eyes from debris and are useful for that alone.

I also refer to eyeglasses as spectacles.

These would be great to put on your glasses if you are crafting, machine sanding, cutting wood with a saw, spraying chemicals. Etc.

That is a cool design! I have yet to work with that material. I may need to get some.

Exactly what I originally thought they were for.

Oh my gosh! I think you solved one of my long term problems. I drive a convertible and if the sun is not conveniently located just in front of me it is kinda blinding. I have been puzzling how to make glasses with side pieces for years. This will be so much easier than an elaborate hinge system!
Thank you!

I didn’t think of using it beyond work :slight_smile:

Though I do have a scratch on my glasses from removing tile from the floor that would have been avoided by actual safety glasses.

Those foldable side glasses look awesome. :slight_smile:

Once upon a time I had eye surgery and they gave me these to wear after

Not terribly comfortable or stylish but, man, were they awesome for driving!

Do you know about Glacier sunglasses? I just search Google and there are lots of choices. Glacier sunglasses were popular in the mid-1980s.

My husband brought a convertible into our marriage and Glacier sunglasses are perfect for driving when the sun is out.

I disagree about the “perfect for driving” claim. These don’t allow you any peripheral vision which is extremely dangerous for a driver.

You are absolutely correct!!

When I wore my Glacier sunglasses I always used the side mirrors. They do keep out the sun.
