The Correct Laser Safety Glasses for Pilots

SHOP LASER POINTER SAFETY GLASSES SHOP LASER POINTER SAFETY GLASSES SHOP LASER POINTER SAFETY GLASSES Pilots have plenty to worry about when they’re handling their plans; the last time they need to be concerned about is exposure to laser pointers. Remember when people tell you not to point laser pointers into the sky and turn on the laser? They actually can go all the way and cause a temporary flash to pilots or, even worse, can cause blindness and afterimages, hindering a pilot’s vision.  That’s why it’s in the best interest of every pilot to carry a pair of laser

The Science Behind Dark Laser Safety Goggles and Why They Are Necessary

SHOP LASER SAFETY GLASSES SHOP LASER SAFETY GLASSES SHOP LASER SAFETY GLASSES If you work with lasers, you are probably familiar with the importance of wearing laser safety glasses. However, you may find yourself questioning why some glasses are very dark while others with coverage over more wavelengths are clear. The answer lies in the concept of visible light transmission (VLT). Visible light transmission refers to the amount of light that can pass through the lens, with higher VLT allowing more color to pass through. The purpose of laser safety glasses is to block specific wavelengths of light while allowing

What You Can’t See Can Hurt You: Why Laser Glasses Are Crucial for Eye Safety

SHOP LASER SAFETY GLASSES SHOP LASER SAFETY GLASSES SHOP LASER SAFETY GLASSES It may seem counterintuitive, but laser light can harm your eyesight even if it is invisible. This can be a confusing concept to grasp, as many people assume that if they can’t see it, it can’t hurt them. However, the truth is that invisible laser radiation can be even more hazardous than visible radiation because it can cause damage without being noticed. Eyes are specialized and sensitive sensory organs that are unable to recover from certain types of injuries. Among these permanent injuries is retinal burning, which can

Shades of Safety: Why Some Laser Safety Glasses are Darker than Others

SHOP LASER SAFETY GLASSES SHOP LASER SAFETY GLASSES SHOP LASER SAFETY GLASSES When it comes to laser safety glasses, there is a wide range of colors and styles available, with varying degrees of lens darkness. The darkness of the lenses is determined by their Visible Light Transmission (VLT), which measures the percentage of visible light that passes through the lens. The higher the VLT, the lighter the lenses will be and the easier it will be to see through them. However, it’s important to note that not all lasers can be protected against with clear lenses. Some lasers have visible
