That depends. While most fields we(as a community) play at require paintball goggles, not all paintball goggles are safe for airsoft.

The biggest things you should check when using/buying goggles are:

1) Are they certified?
2) Do they seal around your eyes?
3) Are the lenses in good condition?

Also note that BBs can zip past some face protectors(if the mask has large holes), be mindful of that.
