Have been using a magnifier headset when making precise markings, but then have to keep switching back and forth between that and safety glasses. Looking for safety glasses with built in magnifier. Have seen some that are described as bifocal.

Thanks

Check out Duluth Trading. I bought a pair of clear and sunglasses. They’re a little steep $20. I love the sunglasses when I’m fishing. I don’t have to change to readers to retie or change my rig.

I’ve used the fastcap, duluth and some other brand(dewalt maybe). they all work, duluths’ are kind of pricey. Lots of choices on amazon too.

It all depends upon the magnification you need to see :)

Most Safety & First Aid supplies companies carry them, SAMs sells bifocal sunglasses.

You can also get them for about the same price with the magnifier section both at the bottom and at the top. When your looking up to adjust something you don’t have to do a back bend. Several makes and diopters available on Amazon.
