Congratulations on getting a good laser from DX, not everyone is so lucky. It looks like it's not only powerful, but well-collimated too.

....maybe thats why my eyes have been hurting?....lol ...Just playing....

....I would love to find out how to check for IR output....how can i be sure??.....and if it were to have a filter i am sure the reduction in output would hinder its effectivity....i am actually more interested in raw power than pretty lights...as long as i can see any beam at all thats enough pretty for me...now if i could burn a hole in concrete...THAT would impress me.....haha....do they make IR filtering eye protection for laser??..

Yea they do make IR goggles. Good luck with burning concrete, lol. :D You probabli need so much power that the reflections would melt your goggles ;D

Laser eyewear is more pricey then lasers, :(

They are your eyes so, Its your decision to buy what you trust.

Wicked lasers has them at ~$40 per color.

They do not have certificates regarding them.

NoIR has USA certified glasses but they are designed for medical uses and the price is reflective of the medical industry in general.

I hate to say it (no I don't) but do your own research and buy what you are happy with and feel safe with.

If your eyes are worth it, you will know what to get.

Read the literature, and when you know what OD and nm mean,,, you will make the right choice.

Read here as its the best general info about lenses I can find.

Even OSHA has no rules in the laser area that I can find.

If your laser is a 660nm then u want 660 nm protection, but is there IR leakage on your laser? do you need UV protection?

These are choices you must make.

Reply if you need more assistance

I wouldn't recommend sunglasses as a substitute for any kind of proper safety equipment, much less laser safety equipment.

When did you buy yours?

I bought two recently, and they are both crap. One splits instantly in two beams, the other almost blinks during warm up, then it's stable for half a minute or more and in the end it splits into five beams.

I can't belive how unlucky i am. Rain from DX even tested the second one for me, before shipping it, but obviously not good enough.
