When working with lasers, protecting your eyes is never something to be taken lightly. Irreparable damage is always a possibility whenever a laser comes in contact with the eyes. Having the appropriate protective gear is essential no matter what kind of job it is. That’s why it pays to understand what kind of gear you need and to have a product that reliably keeps you safe.
Choosing The Right Glasses
When it comes to laser protection, there are a number of available options to meet a variety of situations. The specifications of the laser in question are always important. Power, operating wavelength, delivery system, beam diameter, and even the work environment play a factor in how effective one pair of glasses may be over another. Polycarbonate lenses have come a long way and work well in many cases, however, some wavelengths can only be absorbed properly with glass. You may wish to consult your laser’s manual to see the exact specifications and check for recommended eyewear.
Another important aspect of the decision is in your specific function while working. For those who use prescription glasses, a corresponding pair of laser protective glasses might be best, especially for reading on the job. Those performing more advanced procedures may need a tighter fit with more reliable eye and skin coverage to keep them safe. When working with multiple lasers, having a pair with adjustable lenses is better for switching between them. Others may prefer a more multifunctional pair that works in multiple environments. Be sure to consider how you’ll be using your glasses to ensure you find a pair that gives you everything you need to work safely.
