Look no further than the top of the page and you'll see the Survival laser ad, right under the Laser Pointer Forums banner, be sure to check them out.
They carry the "Eagle Pair" brand of safety goggles, they're probably the most affordable good quality goggles around.

OK so I'm looking at $50-$70. Not to bad at all. You can't put a price on your vision! I'm a complete noob and I'm greener than grass when it comes to lasers but I'm not a fool. Thanks for the lead!

Yes safety glasses are a must, esp when you start getting into class 4 lasers. A few of the obvious no-nos for when you don't have glasses on are: Don't shine at mirrors, reflective picture frames, shiny metal, or white walls/floors/ceilings. Those surfaces will reflect that dot so bright you could do eye damage. So be mindful of where the laser hits(termination point)

Also Unless someone already told you this, try to avoid double posting, it is frowned upon here. if you have something to add to a post only a few minutes after posting, use the "Edit" button and add it
