I hate to say but you probably won't find that combination under $100.00 and still have certified protection. The more unrelated wavelengths you add to a protective lens, the higher the price. Our broadband lens protects against UV, 532nm, 635nm, 650nm, 808nm, 980nm, 1064nm in alignment OD ratings. Some members have purchased them and seem to be quite happy with them. You can view them here:

You can get a 7.5% discount when checking out by entering the coupon code: NOR200801.

But when you really think about it, those should be the first and last pair of laser safety glasses you'll ever need. Unless you step on them or something ;D

I plan on buying a pair next week. It sure beats buying three different pairs for red, green, and IR!

They do look like great goggles but there a bit expensive. Is there any cheaper than that?

Default Re: best multi-wavelength goggles

The only way to get cheaper is to just focus on a particular wavelength. Our single wavelength glasses are less than $100 but you only get the single wavelength or a narrow band. Our AL2 will protect you from UV blue and green, and our DIA will protect you from red. Each is under $100. At that point you will need to decide which protection is more important.

The OEM DIA will not protect you from IR. The ML3 will protect you from red + IR, but costs $120.

Default Re: best multi-wavelength goggles

Direct transmission on a Jayrob 270mW is 8.53mW just outside the 5mW Class IIIa range. Whether you use them or not would be your personal call but my recommendation is to have a direct shot to the eyewear attenuate the beam to 5mW or less.

The reason you find red is the lowest OD is because in the scientific community red lasers are the most common color for other laser alignment and targeting. HeNe's and red diodes are often bore sighted to the beam path of higher power lasers. These types of lasers are typically very low power as they are only used for alignment thus only requiring a low OD.

Notice that the range of red attenuation does not include 671nm DPSS and 694nm Ruby. These are always higher power and will never be used for alignment so they are not included.

THese look pretty nice, just a quick question before I order. How are these glasses @ 405nm? Would they be good up to 300mW, or Would I be safer just getting a pair of AL2's?

The ML7s are not rated for 405nm. The graph is not on the website but I do have it and looking at the graph it nosedives but the nosedive is across 405nm so there is some protection but it really is hard to say what the protection would end up being.

I would recommend the AL2 or AL3 for certified protection at 405nm. These will also cover: 405nm, 457nm, 473nm, 488nm, 514nm, 532nm. So your Blu Rays, Argons, and your short wavelength KTP's are covered.

Thanks for the fast replies. Are there any disadvantages to ordering the DIW as a multipurpose glasses over the AL3's for 405nm? Besides the lack of protection from 420nm to 540nm, which I dont need at the moment as I dont have any greens or blue's...yet. When Im ready to order a green or blue, I will get new goggles first.

I found a pair on eBay, but I wouldn't recommend getting these unless you're poor. (No certification.) They claim OD4 for many wavelengths, but I would put it through tests first, with a laser power meter.
