And they must be in conformance with ANSI Z87.1
I was Safety Manager in a few establishments.
One time I was walking through the Shop when a bit shattered. A portion struck my safety glasses in the side shield.
So, yeah. I'm a fanatic hard-ass when it comes to wearing Safety Glasses.
I have news for you. When a Dremel bit it wheel shatters, the piece is flying faster than you can blink.

Another vote for John's wisdom
Have worn prescription glasses since I was six – would never use power tool/etc without eye protection
I worked ER long enough to have wiped blood/mucous/better off not knowing from my glasses often enough to thank God for wearing them

Yes I am currently a Safety Advisor with a fortune 100 company, we have areas where it isn't required due to the potential but for the insurance it is worth every penny.
I also used to wear clear glasses at night while patrolling in the woods. Had one stick get really close in the dark and decided I didn't want the pirate look.

I have had metal in my eye twice, it's not a fun experience
