Given it’s the most vulnerable part of the body, it’s not surprising that the eye is often injured in laser accidents. Because it’s an optical organ, it’s particularly susceptible to lasers in the visible and near-infrared spectrum. Laser beams of this type readily travel through the cornea and lens, and reach the light sensing cells…

Protect Your Vision From Cumulative X-Ray Exposure With Radiation Safety Glasses

xray-raiation glasses

X-rays are highly energetic electromagnetic radiation that are well outside the range of visual perception. Because of their high energy, they are capable of forming ions by knocking electrons off atoms. For this reason they are classified as ionizing radiation. This ionizing of atoms can break down the molecules of living tissue and cause adverse…

Laser Safety Glasses: The Effect of Laser Wavelength on Unprotected Eyes

lasersafetyglasses

A laser generates a beam of light of a single wavelength where the light waves move in the same direction and are exactly in phase (their peaks and valleys are perfectly aligned). This makes the beam intense and highly directional. These optical properties make lasers useful for many commercial and consumer applications. But they also…
