Need to protect your eyes while making art?
Bead Making Eye Protection
Using safety glasses during bead making is important if you want to keep your eyes safe from UV and sodium flare. Bead making eye protection is used to block the harmful ultraviolet rays, or UV, from torchwork from getting to your eyes, and it also blocks the bright orange light coming from torchwork which is typically referred to as sodium flare.
Because UV can harm the retinas from continued exposure over time, even if you’re not currently using bead making eye protection now, you will likely still benefit from using it for the remainder of your career or time in the hobby. Additionally, the sodium flare blocking will not only protect your eyes; it’ll make your work much easier. Sodium flare is the most distracting part of bead making, since this harsh, bright orange light can severely limit your ability to see your work.
