I believe oakley juliet the latest one is ANSI Z87.1 2010. Your perscription frame, lenses, and sideshields should be marked Z87 2 or Z87+ and lenses have a minimum thickness requirement. A good overview of what should be marked with what here. Personally, I wouldn bother with an anti fog coating unless you getting something like a pair of goggles that are more likely to trap air. Anti reflective can cut a lot of reflections, especially if the sun/bright light source is over your shoulder, so moderately useful. If you looking at regular glasses styles you really should get side shields because the frames you prefer don wrap around and who knows when something will fly up there. Anti fog really only works in certain areas, like goggles or constantly going inside and out (think sunglasses when you get out of your A/C car in the summer). Anti fog doesn do shit for me when I have to wear a face mask at work. They still fog up b/c they sending breath up. Anti reflective can help greatly, if there are lights at different angles. All my lights are in the ceiling, and I have no use for them. Tinted glasses are usually a no no indoors (at least at my company). I attach side shields to them to keep crap from flying in and hitting my eye when doing light work. I also have goggles that are made for going over glasses for grinding and flip down welding filter. I also have oversized safety glasses with built in side shields that will sit over my own glasses for the medium duty to heavy work. All of them are ANSI standard safety glasses (except for the side shields I attach, but like I said, light duty work like sovent mixing or stuff). In the last 7 years, I am probably on my second pair of over the glasses safety glasses (yes, they look a little like flatter Oakleys with the side shields, but my eyes are important to me), third pair of goggles because straps wear out, rubbery parts get cracked or break, and innumerable side shields.
Since these things are made of polycarbonate plastic (LEXAN, MAKOLON, and some other tradenames), they do wear down, get sat on, cracked mysteriously, and get scratched up from being banged around, put in pockets, messed up from the work, and bouncing around when in stored somewhere in the minivan. If you do find a relatively affordable pair, they fit comfortably, and are safe, then run out and buy a few spares. One for home, one for work, one in the vehicle; just keep those still stored in the plastic bag they come in as further protection until you need to wear them (which also is good if you need to loan out a pair to someone who might need a pair nothing like a fresh and sealed pair to make someone happy).
