Default Opinions on these glasses?

So I'm looking for a set of glasses that would protect decently from a 1watt 445. I don't plan on staring at the dot or burning things close up or anything, just want some glasses that can protect from normal responsible use of the laser. These are the ones I found that look good to me... they appear to be certified and such. I'd be interested in anyone's opinions on whether they offer enough protection and if that's a good price.

NOVA Shields Sport Alignment - Safety Equipment - Novalasers Inc.

They also have these, and I'm unsure of the difference.

GO WITH THE SECOND ONE!!!!!! The first one is only od+2 for 445nm and 532nm.. These are probably the ones you will be using. The second one is od+7 for both of them. I am not sure if they are correctly stated, but NOVA-LASERS seem to be a fairly reliable company, so i would expect them to be up to spec.

Nova is a good company. Now I don't know if their glasses are certified so I will assume they are not and continue. To be short and brief I would say get the OD7 glasses if you are going to buy a pair from Nova. This way you can be sure that any accidental exposure to 445 will not let ANY light through.

That is just my suggestion.

Default Re: Opinions on these glasses?

Yeah, that first set is kind of confusing... Either way, I'll get the second set.

They do say:
NOVA Shields laser safety eyewear is CE-certified and meets or exceeds US and international safety standards and optical standards, including laser standards ANSI Z136.1-.3 (US), CSA Z386 (Canada), EN207/EN208 (Europe), and Z87.1 (US) impact standards

Not sure what all that means, but I'll assume they're certified and legit. They are the cheapest pair I could find that actually mentioned they were certified. So unless anyone knows of a better deal, I'm going with those.

Got the glasses today. Pretty impressed with them. The glasses are actually made by noir laser. NoIR LaserShields: Laser safety goggles, laser safety glasses and laser protective windows direct from the manufacturer. Made in the USA amd CE-certifed for the world of laser applications. Which lists the price at 100 dollars. So either nova gets crazy good deals on them or sells them at a loss so people buying their lasers don't go blind. Either way, glasses work great. Makes the dot from my 1100mw laser into a pale orange spot. And I can barely see any dot at all out of my "100mw" green. I'd call it a good deal for 50 bucks.

I like the look of these bad dogs. Looks like you are doing some SERIOUS laser stuff if you'd be wearing these. Think I may check those out.

Just a word of caution, OD7 is quite a lot, you might not be able to see the laser AT ALL. My OD5+ goggles from DL (for red) blow away anything red, they even make it comfortable to look direct into a PT-54 LED
