To prevent accidental eye exposure during a laser procedure or treatment, Universal Medical offers the latest safety eyewear. The diode laser eyewear selection includes adjustable, spectacle style design, soft padded goggles, wrap around, frames with side protection and fit over glasses. With this variety of diode laser glasses, you’ll have no problem finding the right frames for your medical personnel. The adjustable (model 66) diode laser glasses and the wrap around (model 808) diode laser glasses are available in multiple colors to help you differentiate glasses between medical workers.
Certified laser safety officers help to prevent damage from direct laser radiation, reflected beams and accidents. Laser safety requirements in the medical setting include diode laser glasses to meet ANSI and OSHA standards.
Lightweight polycarbonate lenses in laser glasses protect eyes from the appropriate laser and they’re comfortable for medical staff to wear throughout extended procedures and treatments. Many of the diode laser eyewear options include side shields, soft padding, adjustable nose pieces, unisex frames and durable resilience. Laser diode glasses focus on safety as their primary purpose and polycarbonate lenses help filter certain wavelengths of light from diode lasers.
Optical density describes the amount of light that laser glasses allow to pass through the filters. An optical density (OD) of 5.0 allows .001 of laser energy to pass through. The larger the number the greater the protection.
Laser diodes use laser energy for various medical purposes, and with the benefits of today’s technology it is increasingly more common in treatment centers. Lasers emit radiation which can cause permanent eye damage without laser eye protection. Diode laser glasses protect medical staff from accidental eye exposure when operating powerful laser systems. The effects of laser radiation to the eye can cumulatively build over time and may not be noticeable right away. Since eye tissue is delicate and considered a sensitive organ the risk of irreversible laser radiation increases.
Diode laser glasses from the wide selection of safety eyewear prove vital for surgical, medical, dental or optical medical facilities that perform diode laser treatments. Doctors and medical staff perform hundreds of laser procedures and cumulative effects or accidents pose high risks. By following recommended safety protocols it will help to eliminate workplace accidents or long-term safety risks for medical personnel.
