Oakley Lead Glasses

Protecting Your Eyes From Ionizing Radiation

Your eyes are an important part of your overall health. Among the tips for maintaing good eye health is to always wear protective eyewear. Radiation eye protection should always be used when working near or around ionizing radiation. The eyes are one of the most sensitive areas of the body, and one of the most vulnerable to radiation. By wearing a pair of high-quality lead glasses during x-ray procedures, you will reduce the amount of radiation exposure to the lens. Several studies have found that wearing lead glasses significantly reduces the lens dose rate. One study in particular, “Comparing strategies for operator eye protection in the interventional radiology suite” determined that the “use of leaded glasses alone reduced the lens dose rate by a factor of five to 10; scatter-shielding drapes alone reduced the dose rate by a factor of five to 25.”
