Goggles, Tactical Glasses? Full Face Masks?

Ok, so since i come from Hong Kong i decided to check out the places around here looking at lots of fields out there and have noticed that many require full face protection, lots of games that are out there also require one to have either goggles or full face paintball style masks.

Is it really necessary to have full face masks? one of the reason why i airsoft is so that i dont have to wear stupid mask that gets in the way of you aiming you gun and the fogging up that happens a lot of times. Goggles i understand but why no tactical glasses? Back in hong kong I have been wearing a pair of Wiley-x Tactical Glasses that are certified for airsoft and have been tested to withstand up to 600 fps. so was wondering what the issues were with canada and tactical glasses? are people just afraid of getting shot in the face?

Im going to bring back Both my Tact Glasses and Goggles and the rest of my gear from Hong Kong but i wont have a Proper plastic bulky Facemask other than a Neoprene Half Mask that just prevents scarring, (its kinda made with the same material that they use to make wetsuits.)

any way Would be great for the vets in Canada to help me clear this up thanks
