View Full Version : Why no shade 3?

Does anyone know where you can get shade 3 lenses? I can only ever find shade 5.

Dark sunglasses are about a 3.

here's the safety glasses i use...
they are Z87.1 rated and they are the longest lasting glasses i own (don't know why... i beat the @#$% out of them, but the ones that never seem to be abused are the first to break). they are about a 3, maybe even a 4... either way, they are darker than most other sunglasses. extremely comfortable too. you can find them for a little cheaper at other places (MSC for example) and they have different frame/lense colors and shades, but those were the first ones that came up and i knew where to find them.

I wear regular glasses all the time so I cant put "sunglasses" on... I have to use something that can fit over my normal glasses.
thats why I wanted the lenses so I could just put a shade 3 on my torch goggles. they fit over my glasses comfortably

hmmm... i have never seen a 3-shade torch lense... ever thought about trying to get a #3 flat plate and cutting it with a scroll saw or bandsaw? it'd be a PITA, but it may be your only option. sorry that i can't be more help.

well anyone got any other ideas for something in a lighter shade that will fit over my regular glasses?

You can get motorcycle goggles with tinted lenses, though the ones I have seen are probly lighter than a #3. What about those big Oakley sun glasses that make you look like the Fly, those would probly fit over a pair of eye glasses. I haven't seen them in a few years though.

i'm not sure how dark they can go, but talk to your local eye doctor. i bet they could come up with something for you. i know they make the big sunglasses that fit over everything on your face (my grandpa had them and i used to wear them all the time, just to look like a doofus) and i think they are less than $20.

P.S.... who knows... maybe insurance or the company could cover it as saying that it is a necessary business expenditure?
