Default 405 nm goggles against sun?

Can I use my blu ray goggles as sunglasses? I heard that they provide also ultraviolet protection
Excuse me but this might be a dumb question but those goggles look really cool and you see things with different colours :P

i guess it depends on the wavelength(s) yours are rated for. I saw somebody eles here that said their goggles are rated from 190nm-540nm.

Don't forget.... the sun gives off a full spectrum of visible light not just UV and Green....

Jerry, I think the sun might give off more then just the visible light.

OP, it is not safe to look at the sun at all unless you have specialized equipment. Goggles are no where specialized enough.

A welding mask is the only thing I use to stare at the sun.


But, seriously. I have a few pairs of goggles that indicate protection from 190-500nm for an OD (optical density) of greater than 3 [OD>3.5 for 190-500nm, OD>3 for 500-540nm], but I wouldn't consider my self even remotely protected from the sun's UV light with these.
And, OP, you sure are right... They look ultra-cool !!! :

You will have to beat the ladies off with a stick if you go out in public with laser goggles on.

Laser goggles = the most powerful aphrodisiac




Don't worry... Eye patches are cool too. Arrrr!
