Hi, I just got a 512nm green laser from eBay for sci-fi and cuz it's just cool, a friend told me it's probably actually around 200-300mW. What goggles should I get? All of these options are just so confusing.

I'm really scared to get into this hobby for these safety reasons, I just really want to make sure I'm getting something right so I don't go blind. (all these videos of lasers going through the $10 Chinese goggles really are scaring me ._.

Can someone help? This is something I really would like to get into.

I wouldn't trust the Chinese laser safety glasses for sale on ebay/amazon.

I use EaglePair from SurvivalLasers but there's nothing wrong with spending more and getting lab quality certified glasses for extra peace of mind, I posted a few below, however there are many others.
