Safety Goggles - Do I need IR protection?

I'm planning on experimenting with some blue (445-473nm) and green lasers. I'm looking at the Eagle Pair OD6 Slip over's or the Eagle Pair OD5 Goggles. I've noticed that there was a warning that one pair is not for diodes that produce significant infrared light.

I'm working with an unknown 445nm blue laser, and a M140 A-Type laser.

Which pair should I get? Also note that I wear glasses.

Direct diode blue lasers do not produce/emit IR

DPSS lasers like 532nm emit IR as the system uses an IR diode to pump the crystals that emit in the visible wavelength range

The goggles you mention are fine either pair for 445nm are fine----the slip overs are great if you wear glasses
