If you are working with hot glass, it is very important that you use the right protection. Whether you are a professional or a hobbyist, you must protect your eyes from UV and IR rays. You should also pay attention to your ventilation, because improperly ventilated workspaces can cause shortness of breath and headaches.

The risk of injury from working with hot glass is high, and you must make sure to wear safety glasses or goggles that will protect your eyes. These lampworking glasses will protect you from flying glass fragments and from ultraviolet and infrared rays. They come in different lens shades and are suitable for specific types of work.

There are a variety of protective lenses which are commonly used for lampworking, such as the BoroTruView 5.0, Sodium Flare Polycarbonate, and Light Green. Each of them provides a different type of protection, made of different lens materials, and for different types of glass work.

In addition to lampworking glasses, you can buy other products such as helmets, face shields, and lampworking goggles. Some of these items are made of metal, plastic, or even wrapped around the lens for extra safety. Most of these are scientifically engineered to offer the best visibility possible while working with hot glass. 

Another type of protective hot glass eyewear is the Phillips 202, which offers a new formulation. It provides extra protection when working with soft glass, and ideal for small glass work. This type of lampworking glasses is available in various colors and comes in full coverage, split-lens, and goggles.
