In addition, the frame size can accommodate most wearers, with an eye measurement of 48 mm, a bridge of 18 mm, and a temple length of 145 mm. So, if you're looking for a quality pair of welding glasses, the Phillips Welding Glasses are a great option.

*NOTE - Welding protection with IR Green shades, Cobalt, or other very dark lenses is NOT to be worn while operating moving vehicles, bicycles or any such apparatus, particularly on the road, as these shades can significantly impair one's ability to see traffic signals adequately or accurately. "Welding protection" includes, but is not limited to: glasses, goggles, shields, masks, hoods and helmets. Safety Glasses USA, Inc. is not responsible for any damage or injury caused by such activity.
Phillips Solar Eclipse Glasses have exceptionally dark lenses and are intended solely for solar eclipse observation or welding. They are far too dark for use as sunglasses. The glasses block over 99% of UV light and 97% of IR Radiation. The visible light transmission of these lenses is roughly .0003%.
Note: Due to the nature of this product, we will not be accepting opened box returns.
I will be shocked if I get a response.
I picked up from my PO Box my Order #185956. I am EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED in that it appears that both WLD-514-ETG units appear to be broken or there is secret on how to Assemble the Side Eye Shields. Is there an Assembly Drawing and/or Assembly Instructions?
Could the Shipping Department find a smaller box to cram the glasses into?
I bought these for the Upcoming Solar Eclipse as they were highly recommended – perhaps they may be interested in my experiences.
My plan was to buy two (2) Sets of Glasses initially and then a follow up order of an additional five (5) Sets of Glasses.
Why do I have to pay for Return Shipping for what appear to be defective products?
Can you help me towards an amicable solution?
I apologize for your frustration. I would like to attempt to answer your questions:
If the side shields are not attached, they should easily snap onto the frames. They often come from the manufacture this way.
As you know shipping costs have sky rocketed. UPS is available for $8.99 and comes in a 6x6x4 box.
We have not had any reported issues with the pillow boxes, and use the smallest box possible to save shipping cost for everyone.
If these glasses do not work for you and you find them to be defective, we will certainly provide you with a label to return the product. Upon inspection a full refund will be issued.
I am including return instructions in the event to are unable to attached the side shields or feel the product is not what you were expecting. If there is anything else I can do to assist you please don't hesitate to reply.
1. Return item with all packaging materials and copy of your packing slip. Include details for your return (See back of packing slip)
2. Write your RMA number on the exterior of the box. (R185956)
3. Attached the provided label. Be certain to remove any previous shipping labels.

This RMA number will expire in 30 days. Refunds are issued as soon as your return can be processed. Our customer service department is available Monday-Friday 8:00a-4:00p Eastern at [****] to answer any additional questions.
Regarding "If the side shields are not attached, they should easily snap onto the frames. They often come from the manufacturer this way", I will attempt to attach the Side Shields before throwing in the towel.
I am very familiar with UPS Costs ...
Being cognizant of "This RMA number will expire in 30 days", I will try to make it work in the next couple of days, otherwise I will ship back the glasses.
NOTE that I bought these glasses based on it being recommended in an article about the upcoming Total Solar Eclipse so I am starting to experience time pressure to make it happen.
WOULD NEVER RECOMEND USA SAFETY GLASSES NOR THAN I PLAN TO PURCHASE FROM THEM AGAIN. THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT I STILL DON'T HAVE SOLAR ECLIPSE GLASSES EVEN THOUGH I ORDERED THEM WELL IN ADVANCE - NOW VERY CHALLENGING TO FIND SUITABLE GLASSES
