Yes, my glasses are rated for safety glasses. I can also wear them at work, too.

Wear safety rated sunglasses in the day time and a clear shield of my open face helmet. Usually buy my sunglasses at Lowe's and wear them for safety glasses anyway, running power tools, mowing, etc. Whole shelf of safety rated sunglasses at the Lowe's store........ most got the very hard to break frames on them. I have learned that even the very hard to break frames will pop if it is below freezing and you put too much pressure on them.
