Default Dragonlasers' Laser Safety Glasses

Hi, I'm new to the forums (see my welcome thread ) but I couldn't find a lot of info about the Laser goggles offered by Dragonlasers.
I have recently purchased a 95 mW Viper from them, and am awaiting its arrival right now. I wonder what the quality of their goggles are, and while I'm at it, to which level of mW they would really protect. These are the facts they claim on their site. "(200-540nm) with output of up to 2000mW. OD>3 for 200-500nm, OD>2.5 for 500-540nm"
Please don't see this as a sign of distrust in DL, as I don't believe I'm entitled to an opinion about their wares before I've had the chance to experience them first hand.

PS. I ordered the goggles together with the Viper, because I thought it'd be best to be safe. I also ordered a pair of Lasershades from WL. I don't think you can justify not spending 50 dollars extra later in life if it could've saved your vision somewhere. Also, my Viper is my first laser, apart from the keychain <1 mW lasers everybody's had ;D.

The dragonlasers goggles should be fine. This laser is going to blow you away. It will be over 200 times brighter to the eye than a <1mw red. Don't use it inside without the goggles on because you can hurt your eyes just by looking at the spot up close. For viewing the beam you should use it outside and point it at dark colored stuff >40 feet away from you or point it into the sky. Don't point it at airplanes/cars/people out on the street.

Thanks for the tips. I'm well conscious of what this laser can do compared to what I'm used to, however I still look forward to being astonished by its awesomeness. You can rest assured though, I will not utilise the pointer when there are other people near without goggles, because I've read about headaches induced by just looking at the dot. And I obviously won't point at planes/cars/people/pets. I am actually quite disturbed by some video I've seen on the internet demonstrating the Hulk. They're shining it VERY close to a driving automobile. Luckily I have quite a big yard, so I hope I won't be bothering anyone with it. Otherwise I'll just use it inside. I have a very good pair of eyes according to opticians and based off of my own experience, and I really wouldn't want to do anything to ruin my vision. I love my perfect sight as it is now and do not desire any sort of 'spot' disturbing it. I can only trust myself, so I hope I won't ever be foolish enough to take a peek at the laser inside, especially if there is any object in the room that could reflect the light. In fact, it might be best if I put it in my safe.

Thanks for making me spend even more attention to my safety and that of those around me.

I have these goggles, and they've saved my eyes a ton of times. They're good because they wrap around your face a bit and offer protection for your peripheral vision as well as head-on.
