All eye protection is tested to be capable of withstanding impact from a specified weight ball without cracking, detaching or dislodging, breaking or coming into contact with the eye or the head. AS/NZS test requirements categorise impact resistance into four categories: Low Impact, Medium Impact, High Impact, Very High Impact.
