I'm sure there's someone on here that can mold and cast the frames, and you can probably have the lenses laser cut.

For the time and money in materials involved, unless these are for a project where they need to be dead nuts on, go with the safety glasses and paint them. You can modify the existing lens as well. Why spend hundreds when you can get by for tens.

If you are concerned about them not matching the pair you have, get a replacement pair for yourself too. Then they will all look the same.

Check out shooting glasses. They don't require the same protection as safety glasses and have a very similar style. You might get away with just trimming the lenses.

Smart, very smart.

What is the Make, Model (other info) of the glasses pictures you posted?

then your only option outside of securing more of the real deal, is molding and casting of the three main frame sections, the nose piece and then cutting each lens to fit out of sheet acrylic or tinted clear plastic. Even with a high impact plastic you would have issues with the main frame and the two sides holding together without any help under general stress upon use.

Again, just not too sure its worth the time and money when a readily available "close enough" off the shelf version is readily available. Those ebay safety glasses with a reshaped lens and painted frame would sell visually.
