We are sure you can look online and see what can happen to your eyes if you do not remember to put on your laser safety glasses when you are supposed to. Laser safety glasses will offer you significant protection when you need to protect your eyes from the radiation that comes from the laser.
How powerful is radiation? It can be so powerful that it can cause you to lose vision in one or both eyes. Your eyes do not have to be exposed to the radiation for a significant amount of time either; your vision could be lost in an instant.
Isn’t that reason a good enough reason to always have your laser safety glasses with you? Here are some more reasons why you will need to wear your laser safety glasses or laser safety goggles:
- Both indirect and direct contact with laser radiation can cause you to lose vision in your eyes, and the contact does not have to last for a minute or longer.
- You will need to wear laser safety glasses when you know you will be around lasers. If you know you are supposed to wear laser safety glasses and you do not wear them on the job, you will find yourself facing plenty of trouble from your employer, and you may also have a hard time getting health care coverage because you did not follow the rules that were set.
- If you do not wear the safety glasses while operating a laser, you may not be able to see the laser beams which can result in an unfortunate accident for you or anyone near you.
We know that laser safety glasses may not be the most comfortable things in the world, but would you rather be uncomfortable for a short period of time or would you rather deal with serious eye injuries or blindness?
