Plastic vs Glass?

While using my weed wacker I suddenly see the window on my screen door explode some 30' in front of me, I must of hit a rock or something.

My screen door is nothing fancy, just a basic door with two windows. The glass is easy to replace. But before replacing it I got to thinking, would it be better to replace this with some sort of clear plastic or would that look horrible? I am not certain I have ever seen a clear plastic window.

I have lived in my house for 6 years and finally had this problem, so its nothing I am greatly worried about happening again.

Plexiglass does cost less, is more shatter resistant.

And will scratch easier, as well as eventually become too opaque to see through.

Your choice.
