I wear glasses with a prism in one lens. I totally understand where this student is coming from since I have to wear safety goggles when I'm metalsmithing or working with acids. I ended up getting prescription safety goggles with a prism. They're not cheap though.

Subject: [Athen] Prism Glasses in Lab


I have a student who wears prism glasses and he is required to wear safety goggles in labs. Wearing the goggles over his prism glasses is presenting two problems - decent amount of glare and, more significantly, his glasses end up being positioned inside of the goggles and with how the goggles are curved, it makes it nearly impossible for him to see. It also makes him nauseous. Is anyone aware of any safety goggles that would be good for someone with prism glasses? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
