Choosing the Right Filter for Holmium Laser Safety Glasses

When it comes to ensuring safety while working with Holmium lasers, the KG-5 glass laser lens stands out as the top choice. With its clear/light blue color and exceptional visual light transmission (VLT), the KG-5 lens provides optimal protection for professionals operating Holmium lasers. It’s no wonder that this lens has become one of the most popular laser safety filters in our collection.

Let’s delve deeper into what makes our Holmium laser safety glasses with the KG-5 filter an excellent choice:


The KG-5 lens filter is specifically designed to address the safety requirements of Holmium lasers. It offers superior coverage and protection against the infrared beam emitted by Holmium lasers, ensuring that your eyes are shielded from potentially harmful radiation.

Unlike polycarbonate laser lenses, the KG-5 glass lens provides sufficient coverage for Holmium lasers. It accomplishes this by effectively blocking wavelengths outside the visual spectrum, thereby assuring the safety of your eyes.

Holmium lasers find wide usage in medical and industrial applications. Thanks to the KG-5 filter’s high VLT and optical quality, it becomes an ideal choice for professionals working with these lasers. The lens ensures that you can clearly see your surroundings while being protected from the laser’s radiation.

The KG-5 lens boasts excellent visible light transmission, making it nearly clear. Its light blue color adds a gentle tint that doesn’t hinder your vision, allowing you to work comfortably without compromising safety. This feature is especially important when precise work is required in laser applications.

Durability is another key advantage of the KG-5 glass lens. Its scratch-resistant properties ensure that it can withstand extended working conditions, maintaining its protective capabilities for a long time. With this lens, you can rely on its durability and longevity.

While the infrared beam emitted by Holmium lasers is invisible, it is crucial to remember that it can still pose a significant risk. Therefore, exercising extreme caution and always wearing appropriate laser eyewear in the laser area is of utmost importance. The high VLT of Holmium laser safety glasses allows for comfortable wearing without compromising visibility or impeding your work. This combination of safety and functionality makes them a valuable asset in any laser-related work environment.
