Choosing the Right Laser Safety Glasses to Protect Yourself from Laser Exposure
Posted by Sachin CMI on December 11th, 2020
Laser safety glasses are required to protect your eyes from laser exposure as part of the protection equipment provided when working with lasers. There are two main types of laser safety glasses: passive laser safety glasses, or PLGs, and active laser safety glasses, or Lasik. Both provide 100% protection against laser exposure, but only one type is approved for use in the workplace. Lasik is a newer technology that can now be used safely by most consumers. However, some older Lasik patients may still need some form of safety eyewear to protect their eyes should they ever need laser surgery.
Laser safety glasses are designed to fit over your entire eyes, not just your nearsighted ones. This means that even if you have astigmatism, your vision will be clear - the specially-designed lenses correct for farsightedness and nearsightedness. They also fit over just your central vision area, eliminating the need for glasses with a large area of vision cut out. This means that if you are working with one or more lasers, you can have a conversation without having to hold your arms directly out in front of your face, which can easily result in tripping and falling. With these goggles, you'll be able to see all around you and know that you won't be tripped or dropped.
The two different types of these safety glasses are corrective and non-corrective. Non-corrective LGP or non-light emitting digital glasses are designed to minimize the risk of eye injury while protecting eyes against laser radiation. They function by cutting out the harmful high-energy blue laser rays and green laser rays, which are known to cause skin burns and discomfort. Corrective LGP or corrected laser safety glasses, on the other hand, are made to improve visual clarity by correcting for refractive errors caused by nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Corrective LGP glasses help protect your eyes against the high levels of radiation emitted by today's lasers.
