So you really think all of the people buying more expensive goggles do so to point their lasers into their eyes?

I even bought an OD4 filter to be able to test my goggles with different wavelengths to see how much visible light comes through... I think your eyes are more worth then 40$-60$ for an Eagle Pair...

I said this because it has some sticking lenses when you point to the eyes, but when it protects reflex points

Those tests are nowhere near the same as those required for certification.

I personally tested the pair I linked to, but guess what, I still don't use them, and put on certified goggles that cost ten times as much.

Cheaper goggles are better than nothing, but do not mistake that to mean that you're getting the same, or proper level of protection.

Soren is absolutely right, this may not be the hobby for you, if spending more than $15 is a problem.

I know that obviously will not get the protection of a U.S. $ 80.
But the tests do not pass anything a LASER 1W (I think) that protects something!

If the "OD 5+" stated on there is real and not just a typed number, then this is probably your best option Henrique.
I'm pretty sure the OD rating on these is BS,
Its more like ~2.5, which is still not bad for 6$
