  • Safety glasses and goggles are made to high quality specifications in order to pass the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). They must pass six different tests for optical quality plus three diferent tests for impact resistance (including one that shoots a 1/4" steel ball at over 100 miles per hour that leaves only a dimple in the lens).
