Check out the local gas / plumber store where you get your tanksrefilled. They will have all different styles of glasses for you tochoose and varying shades. They deal with mostly welders so glassesfor platinum should be easily obtained too. Mark
spend the money on the glasses. you only get one set of eyes. in myexperience most jewelers "free solder " i.e. no lenses, but allwelders i know use glasses. oxygen enhanced flames do harm your eyesover time. when you must look at the flame directly to see what'sgoing on .but use the glasses most of the time .the only problem ihad with goggles was getting used to the difference in the way themetal and flux looks just before it flows. hope this helps
If you're looking for shaded "welding goggles" (that's what theycall them), try a local welding/gas shop or even Home Depot or Lowes. They should have them and save you the time and trouble of mailorder.
Best of luck,Karen Goeller
