Default I want to get proper glasses. How about these-

So I'm new to lasers (never had anything past the little toy yellow bullet shaped keychain pointer) and I just ordered these three lasers:

Green and Blue/Violet Laser Pointer Combo SALE US SHIP - eBay (item 110606495924 end time Mar-02-11 05:05:19 PST)

and

Red Laser Pointer 85-100 Visible Beam Beast Edition USA - eBay (item 110653364583 end time Mar-25-11 19:47:15 PDT)


Now people on here have said that typically these are over spec. So I am looking for some good glasses.

I was thinking maybe these:
For green and violet: 405nm,450nm,473nm,532nm laser safety goggles [OLGLG532] - $19.99 : Welcome to O-Like.com, Your source for laser products
For red: Red laser safety goggles/590-780nm protective goggles [OLRLG650] - $14.99 : Welcome to O-Like.com, Your source for laser products

Are those adequate/quality? If not please direct me to what I should get.

EDIT:

I forgot about IR. (again I am new so I don't really know what I'm talking about) Do the glasses need to block IR?

I did. I searched Olike goggles, glasses and I searched about glasses in general ex. best goggles, glasses but there are tons of different ones and people all seem to prefer different things. It's all a bit confusing to me (about figuring out which glasses work for which lasers). I just want to be extra certain I get what is correct.

EDIT:
Ok so I finally found that the Olikes apparently are not that great. Going to search some more. If anyone wants to add input, thanks.

Alright. I did some more digging with the search and I found that apparently wicked glasses don't work too well with green lasers.

So- now I'm on to laserglow glasses but I'm not sure if they have a pair for each wavelength- I mean, so one pair can work for multiple wavelengths? I'm also not sure what the optical density means. How do I know what OD I need? They are quite expensive but I guess my eyesight is priceless so a couple 100 is worth it.

Anyone have experience with laserglow glasses? I couldn't find any reviews for them.

OD is Optical Density. Simply put, it rates the amount of light at a certain wavelength that will be allowed through.

A good tool to find what OD rating you need is at OD Calculator - Safe Lasers - Laser safety information, tools, and free warning labels.

I use the LSG-532-NS-7 from Laserglow. Which is rated OD7 for 190-532nm. So I use these glasses for my 405, 445, and 532. I trust those while using Yobresals 1.2w 445 build. Anything above that wavelength would require a different pair of goggles, so those glasses wont protect you from red lasers for example (the LSG-660 will cover that)

Im sure there are other glasses that match that quality for cheaper but it was easy for me to get as a local pickup . Also you can use coupon code LPFGOGS for 20% off.

Just keep searching around the forums with different search terms, im sure you can find all the info you need.

Default Re: I want to get proper glasses. How about these-

Ya this is not much compiled info on safety glasses. there are some reviews of multiple glasses in one posting subject but the search function doesnt put them first for some reason. I remember a couple/few months ago, two different member reviewed multiple goggles. Most reviews here are about the blue/green wave length. Typically you can get goggles for 405nm-532nm (blu-ray, blue, and green lasers). There are some that are for multiple wavelengths, usually including red and ir up to a certain amount but i havent seen much reviews or ir spectrum, but typically they run bad at visible spec. I will do a review on a few different ones soon. I have dino-direct multiple wavelength, wicked, and just ordered and got jetlasers and laserglow, and getting a few more.
To answer your question Laserglows have had good reviews and seem like they have good testing and customer service. They are on the high-mid range price ($89) glasses (and some go to $300 on some sites for powerful lasers) If you search od 7+ you may find the review. Jetlasers seems to be cheap price and got some good reviews for the price. The lasers you are getting dont see very powerful so you dont need the highest protection, just proven protection, with higher protection rate you wont be able to seem the beam or dot as well. I hope this helps a bit.
The only lasers you have to worry about with IR are solid state lasers or ir lasers. Almost all greens and yellows have some IR that is given off, they are solid state. The most other colors use diodes and dont put off IR like red blue blu-ray

Default Re: I want to get proper glasses. How about these-

That does help- a lot. I will keep searching even more too. Thank you BTW.

The way I see it, is if I'm going to spend $150-$200 on a pair that is for a less powerful laser, why not spend the same amount for the ones with better protection since in the near future I hope to acquire some more powerful lasers. If there are any glasses that someone can recommend that don't cost that much but still provide the protection I need, I would be more apt to buy the lower OD and then if and when I get a more powerful laser- get the higher OD glasses.

Get what I'm saying?

And, I am getting a green pointer, so do I need to worry about that IR? I believe these are the cheap kind from china which may not have an IR filter.


Here is something interesting. I doubt anyone will know anything about these but I'll give it a shot-
http://www.elvex.com/laser-spectacles.htm

Those are laser safety glasses made by a real prescription glasses and sunglasses company- Bollé. Now the reason I like these is because being a big company I assume these are the real deal. Second, my friend is an eye doctor and might be able to hook me up. Ever heard of these?

Default Re: I want to get proper glasses. How about these-

Alright so guess I'll go with the Dragonlasers glasses since a lot of people seem to like them but I have one last question.

I saw that on the page where it lists the specs of the glasses, it says the glasses are rated for 600nm-740nm in the title, but then on the side it lists all these different ODs compared to the different wavelength ranges. I'm a little confused about this. Should I go by the title (600nm-740nm) or the little chart?

the chart shows how good it will protect from other wavelengths

Ah, got it. So does that mean they are ok to use for protection from those other wavelengths? Or should I still get a second pair which are specified for a different wavelength?

As long as the wavelength of your laser falls in the given range and the listed OD for that range is high enough it will work fine.
