Default Eye safety Quick Responses Needed

hello forum, I just bought a 130mW bluray and I need some advice, fast so that I can buy the eyeware and have it by the time the laser gets here. I want to get some safety eyeware... for under 20-25 US dollars shipping included. Anybody know a good seller on LPF or abroad? I know you cant put a price on your eyesight. I realize this but I am extremely careful when dealing with lasers anyway, so the eyeware is an extra but necessary precaution I want to take to protect me when burning things up close. You know, when I get that pyro urge.

Thanks forum,
Pianoman

Click. Be prepared to get a lot of flak from people who probably don impact armor before sitting down to eat with knife and fork.

EDIT: Hm, I thought they had other color goggles as well, but I can't find them. The thread above mentions on the last page that they protect against BR as well (not surprisingly, it's easy to protect against near-UV). Actually any standard sunglasses should do that. Jayrob in one post reported good results with Blueblocker glasses. As usual, never intentionally look into the beam.

What no that's not true at all. Lol Ebert my lasers go right through glasses EASY. Anyways yes those work that he posted but many people doubt them, ehhh maybe I'd use them with a 50mw I don't know.

check oem laser systems certified hobby goggles for 47 dollars. Certification is cool but the wraparound is actually what got me. Looks something like this http://www.lasermotion.com/TEXT/laser%20goggles.gif

hehehehe no stray shot is getting me

i don impact armour every time i sit down to eat with a knife and fork

jks!

Btw good luck finding a $20-25 pair of goggles/glasses... they are usually around $40-50 without shipping... btw make sure you look for ones that are certified and look for ones with OD of at least 3++.... i got mine from scopeguy20.. so you might wanna ask him nicely if hes got a extra pair.. also try looking round ebay they might have some cheap ones! but once again make sure they are certified and OD of at least 3++

Remember you could go your whole life without a laser accident or the moment you touch one you can go blind.. so why risk.. your eyesight is worth the extra $$ so dont always go for the cheapest goggles make sure they are the real deal!

Hope that helped! -Adrian

I would think an OD rating of 2 would be fine... got mine from oem, reduces a 400mw to 4mw and you can see the dot fine but once unfocused it can be tough to see. With a 150mw, you would be good

Default Re: Eye safety Quick Responses Needed

If you really want safety from direct laser hits, then the OD number is pretty irrelevant, as it won't tell you how well the glasses will stand up. What you'd need are glasses certified to EN 207 as LD5 at your particular wavelength. See this thread, starting at post #13. I'm just passing on this information without any express or implied recommendation.

Just because we have a healthy respect for our eyesight is no reason to make comments like that..

You know, I thinks it's pretty crappy that you come here to this forum and post things like this. If you don't worry about your own eyes, that fine. But don't come here and post nonsense that puts others at risk. Whether you think safety is important is irrelevant when it's other people's eyes that are potentially at risk. Bobhaha has the right idea. Why risk it at all? Just so that we can all seem like tough guys to you? So you won't accuse us of being pansies that suit up in armor to use a knife and fork? Yeah, that's real important.

It's people like you that have ruined this forum's credibility as a worthwhile source of information. Do you really think you know better than the experts who have always suggested that risking eyesight is unnecessary and foolhardy? (not that it takes an expert, anyone with a little common sense would know that)

There's no denying the logic that if you only get two eyes, why risk their safety at all when goggles aren't even that expensive? That's all that we "safety pansies" are suggesting.

Dr-ebert, I'm just gonna be frank here. I don't know if you are just trying to troll people when you post this crap, but if you are, do it when you're talking about something other than safety. I find that fact that you don't respect the safety of others to be absolutely deplorable, and it hurts the credibility of the forum every time you do so. This is just common sense stuff here. The only excuse for not getting some goggles is if you just can't afford it. If that's the case with you dr-ebert, I'll buy you a pair because I'd hate for an unplanned accident to injure anyone.

Default Re: Eye safety Quick Responses Needed

Hm, have I told anybody to NOT use goggles? Quite the opposite, I've been pointing out cheap but tested alternatives which are more likely to be bought - and thus more useful - than others that cost 5 times as much. Would it be possible for you to stay factual instead of making false statements and generally just airing a personal dislike?

Also for the record: for me, responsible behaviour means not endangering OTHERS. Remember that goggles only protect YOU so you don't start a behaviour that puts others at a higher risk.

EDIT: Typo.

Don't worry everyone. I am a very sensible young man, I would never do anything to endager my eyesight. My career as a pianist would be ruined. I was looking at these

Green and blue laser beam protection Laser safety glasses :: Laser Safety Glasses :: Dragon Lasers
They are nice and provide a nice solid OD of 3.5, they sound like my best option right now. Does anyone think these won't be sufficient? If so please let me know b4 I buy them.
Thanks

Default Re: Eye safety Quick Responses Needed

I have no need to provide any more factual information that I already provide any time these kinds of questions are asked: If you have questions about laser safety, read the safety section of Sam's FAQ. At no point have I stated any "personal dislike" and I have maintained a professional tone throughout our discourses.

In other recent threads regarding safety, your posts have suggested repeatedly that those who promote safety are "hysterical" and "people who probably don impact armor before sitting down to eat with knife and fork". That is what I'm referring to when I say that you don't respect the safety of others.

Frankly I'm done with you and done posting here. I've said everything that needs to be said about this, and I assume the OP has enough common sense to realize the wisest course. I will always be there to point out when you try to mislead others with your skewed ideas, though, so don't be too surprised to see me pop up pretty often. I wouldn't want someone to accidentally get hurt some day because they listened to your advice that laser safety isn't as important as everyone says.

Hey could you guys please just tell me if the dragon lasers 3.5 OD UV goggles are going to be sufficient protection? BTW, fyi, I have read many many posts in this section regarding eyeware safety. I never take just one persons word for it, so ElektroFreak, you don't have to worry about me getting hurt because of anyone, unless everyone on the forum tells me to do something that isn't safe and I try it. Which I doubt would happen. I realize that your concerned, and I appreciate that you are. It's great to see someone looking out for the safety of others. That being said, could someone answer my question? Please, I'm about to leave home for the day and I would really like to getthese ordered b4 I leave so they can start shipping. THanks everyone.

*sigh* you still don't get it, and you're still making false statements. And now you're even announcing that you'll be stalking me. Very professional, indeed.

I refer you again to sencence #2 in post #11.

EDIT: to spell it out: the "flak" remark was meant with regard to people who have the opinion that only expensive glasses are good glasses ("are your eyes worth $10?"). It was not meant to deride people who use laser goggles. I admit that the wording may have been misleading, especially if you didn't read the thread I linked to.

Default Re: Eye safety Quick Responses Needed

@ Pianoman... I would say that those Safety Googles will do for your requirements...

@ ElekroFreak... after reading the Be prepared to get a lot of flak from people who
probably don impact armor before sitting down to eat with knife and fork.
remarks by
our "expert" Doc... I agree with you 100%...
Just to imply that Laser Safety is not an important issue (with all the younger members
on the Forum) is just plain irresponsible... IMO...
We (all the members of LPF) are not all Engineers.. Technicians... or Profesionals that
may have the knowledge and common sense to acquire proper Laser Safety Goggles..
