I use a pair of prescription safety glasses...just about any optometrist can order them.

They are impact rated lenses, no they won't stop a bullet, but they will give you the best protection you can buy.

Yes Polycarbonate lenses are the way to go, As a hobbyist who is also into RC cars which use polycarbonate shells which are between 0.5 0.7 mm thickness

I was amazed to see that they would stop a pellet from a 12ftlbs air rifle. we tested some slightly thicker Poly carbonate, sometimes called Lexan with a 12 bore shotgun and although it deformed the pellets did not pass through, its truly amazing stuff
