Happy Lab PPE Day!

I love this picture of prescription eye glass sideshields;
such an important, neglected part of lab eyewear safety.

  1. The current style in regular and safety glasses are relatively narrow (vertically) lenses, similar to the one in the photo on Tumblr submitted by @kzrt. I think ones with larger lenses, like those shown in the photo from @bat_the_hat, would provide better protection. Larger lenses are also desirable for visitor’s safety glasses because they will fit over regular eyewear.
