Laser safety glasses are vital when working with high-powered lasers that can cause burns. When it comes to laser DMX technology, such as the lasers used in light shows, it’s still crucial to prioritize eye safety and use laser safety glasses. Although these lasers may not typically cause burns, they can still pose a risk to your eyesight if proper precautions aren’t taken.
There is a common misconception that lasers used in public settings, such as laser light shows and concerts, are entirely safe because they do not appear to harm the audience. However, these lasers, also known as digital multiplex (DMX) lasers, can still cause damage to the eyes or result in eye fatigue and headaches for programmers who work with them for extended periods while preparing for a show. So, while they may be safe for viewing in public settings, proper precautions such as using laser safety glasses must still be taken to avoid potential eye damage on those who are exposed to it for long periods of time.
THE GAME-CHANGING BENEFITS OF LASER SAFETY GLASSES FOR DMX PROGRAMMING
Laser DMX programmers can benefit significantly from using laser safety glasses and goggles due to several reasons. Firstly, these glasses can help reduce eye strain after prolonged hours of laser viewing. Secondly, they provide essential protection against the damaging effects of direct beam exposure to the eyes, which can be hazardous to one’s eyesight.
Additionally, laser safety glasses can help reduce the occurrence of headaches and blurry vision that can be associated with laser programming. They can also enhance the programmer’s ability to perform detailed and up-close adjustments and operations where brightness affects visual acuity.
Lastly, it’s worth noting that laser safety glasses can add a cool factor to your appearance during the show. In conclusion, using laser safety glasses and goggles is highly recommended for laser DMX programmers, as they provide a multitude of benefits that ultimately contribute to better eye health and performance.
SEE THE BENEFITS: A VIDEO OF PHILLIPS SAFETY’S LASER GLASSES FOR DMX PROGRAMMING
A few years ago, we discovered a video on YouTube demonstrating the effectiveness of our laser safety glasses in preventing eye fatigue and damage when working long hours programming DMX lasers. It is an informative video created by John, an Australian who wanted to educate others about laser safety for DMX programming. It showcases how Phillips Safety’s glasses can help with prolonged laser viewing and how well they can attenuate a laser beam.
To safeguard your eyes while programming DMX, consider investing in a pair of Phillips Safety’s laser glasses. Vision is our primary sensory tool, and you should be able to do what you love without putting your eyes at risk of harm.
