UV blocking Glases - recommend me some please!

I have had a search on UV blocking glasses, and nearly all the links were dead. I have some Oakley Ruby Prizm lenses in my Holbrook glasses, but will that be enough?
If not a link to some reputable (Bolle, Uvex etc - not Chinese cheapo’s) that would suffice would be appreciated. I believe the light is 395nm. :cowboy_hat_face:

I don’t have any dedicated UV flashlight glasses, but I frequently wear clear polycarbonate safety glasses while working. I’ll wear them if I’m playing with my UV Convoy S2 for more than a few minutes.

I have several pairs of different UVEX models, but my recent favorites are the ‘3M Virtua CCS’ safety glasses. They claim to block 99.9% of UV.

The lenses wrap around and fit quite nicely on my face without much gap. They also have a removable foam gasket if you want an even tighter fit. I don’t use the foam gasket very often, as it tends to cause fogging, but it’s handy in very dusty settings.

3M also makes a tinted version of the same model that I really like for outdoor work. They easily pass as sunglasses, too. :sunglasses:

They cost about $8 on Amazon USA. I did a quick search on Amazon UK and the prices were very high. Perhaps you can find a better source?

You can perform a quick test of any eyewear you’re considering for UV flashlight protection. Find an object that fluoresces very well with your flashlight, then shine the light through the glasses at the object. If the eyewear is effective, the object won’t fluoresce.

This guy tests a few glasses.
He actually get to testing around 2.5m into the video.

I found some site that did tests a few years ago. Can’t find it now (naturally).
But they found some name brands didn’t do as well as claimed.
If I come across it, I’ll get back to you.
All the Best,

Thanks guys, after checking google it would seem my Oakley glasses block 100% of UV.
‘Is Oakley Prizm UV protection?
Do PRIZM lenses have UV protection? All Oakley Authentic lenses block 100% of UVA, UVB, and UVC and harmful blue light up to 400 nanometers’

Polycarbonate blocks UV light. The flouresence test is a good way to check.

I’d put them to a test if possible.
I remember seeing years ago a test of shooting glasses being tested for impact resistance.
Several name brand high dollar glasses failed. Several cheapo ones did just fine.
Trust - But verify…
All the Best,
