I’ve not seen tinted Opti-Visors (although wouldn’t bee surprised if
there were some out there), but there ARE places to get prescription
safety glasses which are appropriately tinted and filtered. That way
you can avoid the Dr. Suess look
Uvex in the U.K. offers prescription safety glasses for a wide
variety of uses including welding
their glasses are re-sold by a number of distributors.
Jim Binnion also mentioned Aura Lens
(http://www.auralens.com/glassworkers.html) which can be fitted with
prescription lenses (single and bifocal). Their Rose Dydidium or
AUR-92 lenses are likely to be sufficient, unless you’re working with
You might also check at your local eyeglass supplier (even a
Lenscrafters) to see if they can order the prescription welding
goggles for you. I know, for example, that my local optometrist
orders prescription goggles for everything from skiing to scuba, and
she has mentioned getting welding goggles for people in the past.
So… it may be worth looking into.
