  • Why should I wear Lampworking Glasses?

    Lampworking glasses are specifically designed eyewear used by lampworkers, also known as flameworkers, to protect their eyes from potential hazards associated with working with hot glass and open flames. Here are some reasons why lampworking glasses are necessary:

    1. Sodium Flare Protection: When working with hot glass and open flames, a yellow or orange glow known as sodium flare is produced. This sodium flare can be intense and obscure the true colors of the glass, making it difficult to see the workpiece accurately. Lampworking glasses are equipped with lenses that filter out the sodium flare, allowing the lampworker to see the glass’s true colors and work on it more effectively.
    2. Protection from UV and IR Radiation in Hard Glass Work: The need for protection against UV and IR radiation becomes even more significant when working with hard glass types such as borosilicate or quartz. These glass compositions require higher temperatures during the lampworking process, producing more intense UV and IR radiation emissions from the flame.
    3. Glass Fragments and Debris: During the lampworking process, there is a risk of glass fragments or debris from the work area due to the heat and manipulation of the molten glass. These particles can pose a threat to the eyes and cause injury. Lampworking glasses are a barrier preventing such fragments from reaching the eyes.

    Overall, lampworking glasses are crucial for protecting the eyes of lampworkers and minimizing the risks associated with working with hot glass and open flames. They provide a combination of eye protection, UV and IR radiation blocking, and sodium flare reduction, ensuring the safety and well-being of the lampworker during the glassworking process.

  • Do you sell Didymium Glasses?

    Yes, we sell Phillips202 lenses, an advanced version of the traditional didymium lenses. The Phillips202 lenses offer improved sodium flare filtration and enhanced contrast of colors. These lenses are designed to provide optimal protection and visual clarity for various applications, including lampworking and other situations where sodium flare is a concern. Please click the link below or contact our customer service for more information about our Phillips202 lenses and their availability.

  • What is the difference between didymium glasses and welding glasses?

    Didymium glasses and welding glasses differ in their intended use and the types of protection they provide:

    1. Didymium Glasses: Didymium glasses, also called glassblowing or lampworking glasses, are designed for individuals working with hot glass or flames. They filter out sodium flare, the intense yellow-orange light emitted by the hot glass, to enhance color perception and reduce eye strain. Didymium glasses are not intended to protect against the intense UV or infrared radiation associated with welding.
    2. Welding Glasses: Welding glasses, such as welding goggles or shields, are designed for welding and similar tasks. They offer protection against intense UV and infrared radiation generated during welding processes. Welding glasses have specialized lenses that filter out harmful radiation and often feature dark tinting to shield the eyes from bright welding arcs and sparks.
  • What glasses do I need to wear for lampworking with borosilicate glass?

    When working with borosilicate glass, wearing glasses that provide comprehensive protection, including UV and IR radiation, and sodium flare protection, is essential. We recommend using glasses specifically designed for this purpose, such as the Borotruview 3.0 or Borotruview 5.0, for optimal safety.
    Borotruview glasses offer Excellent UV and IR protection when working at high temperatures with borosilicate glass. These glasses provide a higher level of safety against UV and infrared protection than Phillips202 or Didymium glasses while still offering sodium flare protection. The Borotruview 3.0 and Borotruview 5.0 lenses are well-suited for lampworking with borosilicate glass, protecting your eyes from potential hazards.

  • How much do lampworking glasses cost?

    Our goal at Phillips Safety is to provide customers with lampworking glasses that provide the highest protection during lampworking procedures. That being said, our lampworking glasses start at $69.99, with many options to choose from. Added features such as lens coatings can bring up the price of your safety glasses. However, these features are provided at the best price in the market.

  • How long does it take to get lampworking glasses from Phillips Safety?

    The shipping of glassworking safety products changes according to its category. Lampworking glasses usually take between 3 and 5 business days to be shipped. For more information about the estimated delivery times, please contact us on our chat, e-mail us at, or call us at 1-866-575-1307.

  • Can I buy replacement parts for my lampworking glasses?

    Yes, you can. If your lampworking glasses have any extra accessories or replacement parts, those will be listed in our “Frame Parts” category, under the “Accessories” menu.

  • Do lampworking glasses come with a case?

    Yes, they do. All lampworking glasses at Phillips Safety come with a case for their protection.

  • How to choose lampworking glasses?

    When deciding which glassworking glasses to purchase, the most important question to ask yourself is about the type of glass you will be using. At Phillips Safety we offer seven different lenses for glassworking, all of which are displayed with the glass type and glass work they are designed for. In addition, you can also check a summary of each filter.
