Ballistic eyewear is a form of glasses or goggles that protect from small projectiles and fragments. Ballistic eyewear is commercially available for anyone who wishes to buy it. For the U.S. military, choices are listed on the Authorized Protective Eyewear List (APEL).). The history of protective eyewear goes back to 1880 and extends through to World War I and the present. There are three standards that are currently used to test the effectiveness of ballistic eyewear. These include a U.S. civilian standard (ANSI Z87.1 – 2010), a U.S. military standard (MIL-PRF-31013), and a European standard (EN166, 169, 170 & 172).

I got new glasses. My co-workers once told me about it when I had lost my $400 pair of prescription glasses on the bottom of Conneaut Lake. Anyways, I was a bit skeptical of getting glasses from them because the glasses were anywhere from $9 and up. I thought I'd pass on it for a while and then I talked to another co-worker who orders from there all of the time and told me how amazing... If you don't like them, send them back (which was a concern of mine because of buying online and not being able to try them on). So I did. I LOVED them and I have had them for longer than I should (I need to update my prescription but I'm slacking since I have no eye insurance through my job). The first pair I got from them was a little large but the second time I ordered, I got all the measurements down pat. I decided that since I am not going anytime soon to update my prescription.

These past two weeks have been completely cRaZy. Sarah got a rose and a Fiiz gift card. I got a dozen roses and a Fiiz gift card as well. In the past two weeks Matthew broke his glasses. I was able to buy a new frame to put the lenses in, but he ended up breaking those new frames again. Unfortunately, they didn't have any more frames for those glasses since they had been clearanced so we had to order all new glasses which took two weeks to get here from Zenni optical online. We ordered two pair of glasses this time and hopefully Matthew is done breaking his glasses for a while. About three weeks ago I got a call from one of the Stake Young Women Presidency asking if I would head up a service project for our Stake Youth Conference.
