Hello all,
I have eye were but not ones of very good quality. I have looked at eye wear: http://www.airsoftsniperforum.com/phpBB/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t=1894
but all of th good ones seemed over priced. I can get a good, breathable ski goggles for around 15$, but i was wondering if those expensive goggles were over priced because you needed them. Do you guys think ski goggles would suffice for in-game eye wear??
Thanks,
Shooter

NO NO NO AND GOOD GOD NO!!!

Unless they are rated for airsoft use do not use them!

You only have two eyes, why would you ever think about taking a chance with them?

Just spend the extra money and get a good pair and take care of your eyes.

I bought 65 dollar Military Grade goggles, I shot 5 rounds at POINT blank out of my 550 FPS Sniper, and my 400 FPS Ripsaw AKA VFC 416 w/ a LiPo at 390 FPS, and not a scratch. We did the same with a 120 dollar pair of ski goggles that we didn't want to use, and we put holes threw them.
N O SPELLS NO.

This may be a necro-post, but I learned this the hard way. I had some cheap 5 dollar glasses I used for airsoft, and I was just in my backyard shooting targets with my dad. A bb ricocheted off the fence and went right through the lense into my eye. I'm partially color-blind in my right eye now =(

Glasses when target shooting? I haven't done that, but it seems like it saved you from a lot worse. I'll try and do that next time... Thanks for the heads up!
Yeah, I try to get into the habit of wearing glasses when I play airsoft or just targets. I should have mentioned that I was re-adjusting my hop-up and sighting in a new scope I had got. I'm pretty sure that if I hadn't been wearing glasses, I probably would be completely blind in my right eye.

When I target practice, I do not wear safety glasses or any eye protection for that matter. Instead I just do not put any mags in my rifle and just dry fire. That way there is no chance of getting hit in the eye.
