I ordered a 2-2.4W of 445nm from Sci fi lasers and was wondering what the best eye protection I can get for around $10-$15 is?

Thanks,

Don't put a price limit on your eyesight please... Here's a link and they are $42... You take a gamble with the bargain basement pairs which in my opinion is not worth it.
Eagle Pair® 190-540nm Standard Laser Safety Goggles

IMO you want googles that block all of a multiwatt 445nm. I wear 2 so all i see is floursecense or if it's something that burns a glowing spot.

Google blue light hazard. It's still not something we're 100% sure of.

High-energy visible light - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


even if your googles cut 3 watts down to 30mw you're still getting a good dose of blue light to your eyes from specular reflections.


You might pay the price 20 years later if you get cheap.
