Default Has anyone done a review on these cheap ebay safety goggles?

Hi yall. First post here. I know these seem "too good to be true" and most likely are. I tried using the search button to look up these specifically and couldn't find much. Here is the link:

Safety Glasses 190nm-540nm Blue Violet Green Laser Ray Eye Protection Goggles | eBay



So my questions are:

1) I own a 30mw violet, 30mw red, and 50-75mw green. are those safety goggles above any good?

2) if they arent any good, what do most people who are poor get as the cheapest pair of safety goggles that actually work? I know safety first, but at the same time, I shine mine out in a park with trees and nothing reflective for miles, but I'd still like to have a cheap pair just in case. So I obviously don't need a fancy pair since odds of anything happening in an open park/field are pretty slim. So what's the "go to" cheap pair most people get??

Default Re: Has anyone done a review on these cheap ebay safety goggles?

Those haven't been tested, and they won't.

The reason being is they are too generic, there are literally hundreds of variations on that pair, they are made, and sold by too many different companies. Which means there is no way to predict that if a pair is tested, it will be the same pair as one that looks exactly like it from some other store, or ebay seller.

They are probably ok for the 30mW violet, and the 50-75mW green, though there is no guarantee of this, and of course, for the green, they don't block IR at all. They are completely useless for the red laser.

There are links in my signature to different goggles options. I suggest you grab a pair of the Uvex from amazon for the 405nm, and green (although again, no IR protection), and a pair of goggles from Survival Laser for the red.
