|You have the 4 images . . . would still like a photo of you wearing one of the glasses, though
Maybe you could get Chris to take one?

Edge Safety Eyewear
Just about everyone is aware of the importance of quality sunglasses in protecting eyes from damage from UV rays. Anyone who’s worked outside on a windy day also knows what it’s like to have debris fly into their eyes – a hazard significantly exacerbated by use of common power equipment like mowers and trimmers that can throw up small stones, splinters etc. We believe everyone deserves long, healthy lives doing (and seeing) what they love, and we’ve also heard from a number of women requesting high-quality safety gear that fits. As part of meeting this need, we tested several brands of safety sunglasses. Edge Safety Eyewear from Utah-based Wolf Peak International was by far the best.
We are pleased to offer two lens types – polarized and anti-fog -- each of which has clear advantages for keeping you safe and healthy. Each blocks 99.9% of dangerous UVA/UVB/UVC rays, offers exceptional visual clarity, and complies with tough ANSI (American National Standards Institute) standards for protecting against high velocity and high mass impact. These glasses wrap around the face to offer complete protection without the visual distortion found in some less expensive glasses, and frames are made from a non-slip material that increases its grip when it becomes moist or warm. That means perspiration shouldn’t make these glasses slip down your nose or off your face.
These are unisex, one-size-fits-all glasses, yet we found both frame styles to offer an acceptable fit in terms of both comfort and functionality. Everyone’s experience will be a little different based on bone structure etc. , but in general we think Edge has done a great job creating glasses that will conform to fit the vast majority of users.
A note for those interested in the origin of names: Each frame style is named for a mountain; Dakura, for a high peak in Nepal that’s been climbed only once or twice, and Reclus, for both a mountain in the Andes and a French geographer, Elisee Reclus.
Dakura safety glasses, polarized smoke lens (Item #WP001)
Note: Smoke lenses are considered the perfect all-around tint for standard shading in full or partial sunlight. Polarization eliminates glare and reflections that can obscure your vision.
Dakura safety glasses, anti-fog copper lens (Item #WP002)
Note: Copper lenses filter out blue light or haze that can cause tired, sore or strained eyes. Specifically engineered as a high contrast driving lens to give you greater depth perception. Good in full or partial sunlight or hazy conditions. Anti-fog lens helps to keep your vision clear by allowing moisture to roll off lenses and repelling fog and steam.
Dakura safety glasses, anti-fog smoke lens (Item #WP003)
Note: Smoke lenses are considered the perfect all-around tint for standard shading in full or partial sunlight. Anti-fog lens helps to keep your vision clear by allowing moisture to roll off lenses and repelling fog and steam.
Reclus safety glasses, polarized gradient lens (Item #WP004)
Note: Polarization eliminates glare and reflections that can obscure your vision. Gradient lens transitions from dark smoke to almost clear, providing the perfect shading of harsh sunlight from above while keeping direct and reflected light at conservative levels.
Polarized lenses feature a special filtering layer that blocks out reflected light from below and glare from above. By allowing in only direct light, this lens maximizes your ability to see what you want and need to see, while eliminating glare and reflections that obscure your vision. These lenses protect more than your vision; the better you can see, the safer you can be! Edge Eyewear is the first company to offer a polarized lens in safety glasses.
Edge Eyewear anti-fog polycarbonate lenses feature a coating that is scratch-resistant and repels fog and steam. They’re designed to allow moisture to roll off the lens, thereby keeping your vision clear. Because the lenses of safety glasses tend to fit close to the face, this quality is particularly important. (We tested these after the weather had gotten cooler, so can’t vouch for their performance on a really hot, hard-working day. We do know that less expensive “anti-fog” lenses sold by a competitor didn’t work, which we suspect is why Edge notes that it is the “first company ever to offer a truly anti-fog set of lenses in safety eyewear.” We’ve also noted the generally high quality of Edge glasses compared with others, so are very optimistic about the performance of these lenses. As with all the products we sell, please let us know your experiences with these glasses. )
