Red, orange or green. What colour did you get? Where did you order them from?

Yeah, blue glasses aren't going to be any good for blue light.

Also, I wouldn't trust those cheap eBay glasses with my eyesight. Get something that is known to work and is of good quality.

Those are wrong, I have seen them do this before and it could get someone hurt, I received a pair like that and they would only block some 635nm but not 660nm and they were useless for blue light, like others have said get some good glasses you can trust, those are good for nothing.

That's horrifying. Tip for laser beginners; if the goggles are the same colour as the beam, they likely won't be safe. I use noIR stuff exclusively but I don't expect people starting out to pay for that. Your continued usage of eyesight is worth reading for an hour I'd say!

I bought the same blue glasses which seem to be on a lighter tint of blue, not by mistake but for my red 650's.
After being frustrated seeing that they did nothing on even blocking the red laser that they are suppose too, I tried them as sun glasses and they don't block any sun light either:whistle: I won't let them beat me, i'll find a use for them:giggle:
