    Grow room glasses

    Alright who uses glasses when they're working around their plants under those bright lights? I've been using my regular sunglasses which are a nice pair of Oakley's. They seem to work fine but the colors of the plants are skewed.
    ​​​​​​I looked on Amazon for grow room glasses and it seems like they're either in the $10-20 range or over $100 closer to $150. I just want to see my plants a little more clear and not damage my eyes, but quite frankly I'm not willing to spend $150 unless it's truly the best option.

      I also have these. One for me (always!) and one for wife.

      I got 'em, no complaints for the price.

    I use the Vivosun HPS glasses and they work pretty well to correct the color but they induce minor issues with depth or shadows because I have a hard time seeing down through the canopy into the plants with them on. They're not perfect but they are definitely worth the $12.99. My biggest problem is that I always forget to take them off in the grow room so I never have them handy when I need them but thankfully my lights are well below my line of sight until I squat or bend over pretty far so the lights don't bother me usually.


      Method Seven's for LED since 2014. There are five things I don't skimp on in life. My eyesight is #1.


        I've been wearing the DeWalt eye protection that are tinted dark grey. They block UV,and darken enough to be comfortable, wrap around the sides, .and are pretty neutral in color.


        I also wear a boonie hat since I'm bald, light will sunburn your scalp.

        CMH in a short, crowded tent will do that.
