I love my full face mask.

I wear that over my prescription glasses.  I like to think that I've got more than one layer of protection.

And I do wear the face mask.

I wear cheap  safety glasses (poly carbonate) for everything except sanding and assembly.  I keep misplacing them, so I have about 10 pairs about my shop.

I think I saw the plastic debris hanging on the edge of the incision. Shouldn't there be anything flying loose and hitting the eye when the pair of glasses was hit by something (from a safety design point of view)?

That guy was likely flushing bits out of his eyes. 

Even if you wear prescription glasses use safety glasses over them. I've always pisshaw'd the need for something because I have really thick carbonate lenses. Until I destroyed a $350 prescription a couple months ago. Hot steel and slag burn into the material. I don't recommend safety lens prescriptions--they still melt and ding, and look like a moonscape.

Shouldn't be.
There is a slot in the lenses now, plastic replaced by the cutoff blade.
Wish I had those *in hand* to look them over.

I've seen that happen, not to me though and not into the glasses. Cutoff wheel on a high speed air motor, almost instantly came apart. I do have the pieces in one of my machinist tool boxes, was evidence to convince management their shop foreman wasn't doing his job. Didn't work, crappy management.

I've worn prescription safety glasses for 30 years. Full face shield is nice as Peter mentioned. I had stuff get behind the glasses and side shields from top and bottom.

...and remember, there is no more important safety rule than to wear these (tap, tap)... safety glasses.
