Default Do you wear goggles?

We all know that googles should be worn for all lasers over 5mw, but how many actually wear them? I for one have commited the sin of no goggles many times.

I know you don't coz you don't even own a laser and definately don't have goggles so i'm confused as to why this thread has been started :-?

I personally do not wear them, some may call me stupid, but I am pretty responsible with my lasers and am quite comfortable with working with them without using Goggles. The only laser that could really do me any damage is my pulsar, which I guess is pushing in excess of 150mw (due to it being able to pop a balloon from 1 foot away to 30 feet away, WITHOUT an external lens and WITHOUT having to alter the focus)

Yeah, but I had a laser in the past year, it was a 95mw Viper. I didn't even have goggles, I know I should have, but I used the money to get the next power level of laser. ;D

I know you had a 95mw and then you sold it for an MP3 player soon to be pissed off with... WHY????
But you still continue with this very insignificant thread, about something you don't own :

I wear gargoyles when working with the NdYag - That's bad news. The CO2 is stopped by my glasses and I don't target close stuff with green or red.

I usually make my kid wear them when we do videos - but unless it is right up close, I don't use them...my eyes are worthless without glasses anyways, so maybe I will accidently perform LASIK on myself, and be able to see better ! LOL Yeah - I DO wear them for cose up work though...for normal clowning around, I do not make a very good role model there !

first of all dont wanna be like your father but shining a laser in your eyes even 5 mW can do permanent damge and anything over 50 mW i would suggest google almost for anything your doing. Because some surfaces will reflect the beam and can do very harmful damage.

Well, now I do have a high power laser, a 240mw red. Even so, I don't have googles and don't plan on getting them, don't want to eat into the laser budget!

I think we are all guilty of this crime sometimes as when we get inspiration with a laser, the goggles are not to hand :P
