Laser safety glasses are an essential piece of any laser system because there is always a risk of suffering from an eye injury whenever someone is using a laser. If you have been wearing the same laser safety glasses for a significant period of time, there may be some signs of wear and tear that could make it difficult for you to see through them.
If your glasses have scratches, cracks, or other markings, your laser safety glasses may not be as usable as they were in the beginning. If your glasses do have some serious signs of wear and tear, you can put yourself and someone else in danger because you cannot see out of the glasses as clearly as before. If your laser safety glasses no longer meet the requirements from OSHA, you will no longer be able to use them.
If you wear laser safety glasses on a regular basis, here are some things you should pay attention to:
Do your lenses have marks and scratches on them? Do you think it can become dangerous for you to continue wearing those glasses? Laser safety glasses should not have any scratches or marks on the lenses because this will make it difficult for you to see. If your laser safety glasses have one or both lenses scratched, you should start looking for another pair.
If part of the frame is broken or has a small crack, you should avoid wearing them. There is a chance the crack will spread and you could lose vision because the crack allowed the radiation from the laser to sneak in.
