I just tested my 455nm against the DeWalt brand laser enhancement glasses I purchased ages ago for green protection. I was measuring 190mW without, and the lens brings it down to 2-5mW (some of that being the heat from my hand being near the sensor. I recorded a video to follow...

I'll put in another recommendation for these particular safety glasses.

Looks like the exact same "Style 35" ARG LaserShields I have from NoIR:

NoIR LaserShields Style 35
Filter Argon/KTP-EN207 (ARG)

They have a very good OD 7+ rating all the way from 190nm-532nm.

NoIR provides actual specifications, graphs and EC certificates:

http://www.noirlaser.com/pdf/ARG.pdf
http://www.noirlaser.com/pdf/certifi...ertificate.pdf

AND they won't make you look like a big dork.

The cheap safety glasses many of the laser hobby vendors sell look like bad news to me...

Anyone knows what level of protection you can expect from o-like & rayfoss glasses, does any one have them ?

o-like glasses
Rayfoss glasses

They seem to be the same from picture & specs.

They do look the same, but one vendor says 190nm-550nm and the other says 370-560nm. Neither list a filter material, a manufacturer, any specific approvals or test results...just a $12 pair of mystery Chinese safety glasses with what might as well be make-believe specs.

Compare that to the glasses both "Things" and I have recommended that cost less than $80. Which would you rather trust to protect you from an accidental exposure that could permanently blind you?

Default Re: The thread about "real" goggles/glasses. . .

does anyone know if the glasses that come with the Arctic are worth a crap? If they are ok, then don't really need another pair yet. but if they suck or aren't high enough OD i'd gladly shell out the cash for a respectable pair.

Btw i also bought a pair of 405nm glasses from WL for my S1 Sonar laser i also ordered, will these be acceptable for 445nm? I know generally the goggles work within a fairly broad range and those 2 lasers are fairly close, but 1W is a lot of power.

Default I thought I would post my Arctic glasses observations here . . .

as not to clog a thread which may or may not be deleted with glasses pics . . .

I noticed the glasses pics on the Maximum PC page . . . strange stuff . . . especially after having just paid about $180 for two pair of NOIR shades . . .

The first pic shows what appear to be two (maybe even four) NOIR style #35 shades just behind the Arctic . . .



The second pic shows one NOIR style #35 top left and three other shades I don't recognize=noob . . . In fact it looks like the shades in the top left actually say NOIR right next to the CE symbol?



So I went and took some pics of my new shades from NOIR . . .

ARG right . . .



ARG left . . .



AL2 right



AL2 left



I guess I overpaid but NOIR had all their ducks in a row, great customer service . . . I felt comfortable spending money with them . . .

please discuss . . .

These are the same glasses that everyone has been receiving. You can see them in every unboxing video/thread that is on the internet.
