Default Can't find any reviews...opinions?

Buying a ~680mW blue this weekend, so I've been researching some decent glasses.

I found these: http://www.innovative-lasers.com/accessories.php
(scroll down to the safety glasses, no direct link sorry )

I've seen them linked in other safety threads, but haven't seen any real user info on them. Anyone have a thought on them?

The member is known here. He sell holographic labels.

Description:
"Please note these glasses are not approved for use on any specific wavelengths or classes of lasers. They should not replace a proper OD rated pair of glasses."

The price being $9, and the description like this, I doubt that this glasses suffice.

I'd recomend Survival Lasers' Eagle Pair.

Those "ANSI Z87+, CAN/CSA Z94.3, MIL-PRF-31013 " safety standards, like those "CE certified" claims, mean nothing more than that these goggles are usable as impact resistant goggles.

Unless the goggles you buy are IEC-60825-1 and/or ANSI Z136.1 certified, the "standards" these sites are citing have nothing to do with laser safety. That site doesn't even list what even the suspected OD rating of these goggles are. I've tested yellow safety goggles and they did not protect against even 600mW of output power.

I wouldn't waste your money on such goggles even if someone else has tested them. The site owner hasn't even gone through the effort of providing test data or even a basic suspected OD rating. Who knows what you'll even receive?

I would recommend one of these: Safety

I personally use:
Eagle Pair« 190-540nm Slip Over Laser Safety Goggles
for my 1.8W 445nm. These may be expensive, but I can guarantee you that you won't get eye damage if you wear these.
