    I was at my dentist's office today.(pain, no choice) and as part of her safety costume she and the assistant were wearing a face shield. It was a Uvex, the same one I use in turning. She said it was comfortable to wear all day.

    So if there is a shortage it's being put to good use.

    She was also wearing a LED worklight that was about a1/2" diameter and at about 18" cast a very bright lite of 3" dia. Batteries with a switch in her pocket. This also fit under the mask with room to spare. As it was clipped to her glasses it lit up what she was looking at.
    For some it might be something to look at. She got it from a dental supply place so I know nothing more about it.

    They make safety glasses with built in LED's for construction workers along with LED's that can clip to a pair of safety glasses or hard hats.
    Should be plenty of options for the hobbyist without having to pay for medical grade equipment.

    <Something like this?>

    Sort of, I was paying my bill when I asked and got distracted. Some on that page are fairly reasonable and well wort trying if this is what you need.

    Yeah, the one I linked is only 30 bucks! I'm going to look for something cordless, I don't like the idea of a dangling cord.

    I priced the magnifier glasses at my dentist's. $700!
