Laser Safety Eyewear

Laservision Laser Eyewear Protects Workers and Patients from Eye Damage

When managing a laser-based processing station for industrial or medical use, eyewear products from Laservision are used to properly ensure stray laser light is not going to injure the eyes of workers or patients.

Quick tips on how to select the proper protective eyewear:

  • Know your laser’s wavelength
  • Determine the protection level needed based on your laser’s output parameters, or look for the recommended Optical Density (OD). This can be found in your laser manual.
  • Select a filter whose specifications match the above information. Choose one that offers the highest visibility (VLT).
  • Find a frame that’s right for you. Choose a fit-over frame if prescription glasses are used.

There is an ever-expanding array of complex and sophisticated laser systems in use today. For laser personnel and Laser Safety Officers (LSOs) in materials processing, military, medical, research and development, you demand high-performance safety eyewear options. When selecting the most appropriate laser protective eyewear, LSOs need to consider the working environment, viewing conditions, operational and performance specifications of the laser, as well as beam delivery systems.

Laservision’s laser protective eyewear is available in a variety of technologies such as glass, polycarbonate, and nanospec (thin-film-coated glass). Filters are available using absorptive or reflective dielectric thin-film technology. Absorptive lens filters are made using high-impact, high-optical quality polycarbonate or glass materials. Light absorption at a specific laser wavelength is expressed in terms of optical density (OD).
