I wasn't expecting these until tomorrow, but the local post office has once again managed to get them here a day quicker :wave:

I've seen many people mentioning safety goggles aren't necessary for 100mW but since I haven't owned a high powered laser in a long time, and value my eyes I decided to dish out $42 and pick some up for my incoming labby!



Eagle Pair 190-400/580-780 OD 4+

Overview
Survival Lasers offers a line of protective safety goggles to protect you from dangerous laser radiation entering your eyes in case of accidental exposure. These particular goggles protect you from wavelengths of around ~190nm-~400nm/~580nm-~780nm, so basically UV lasers and a small part of the yellow spectrum, orange and red. These particular goggles have an OD rating of 4+ meaning it will make any Class IIIb safe and a small part of Class IV lasers safe(if they fall within the protected wavelengths).


Packaging
The goggles came in a well protected small envelope type package which effectively does it's job at protecting your goggles from any damage while in transport. Inside is a piece of paper quickly showing an overview of your purchase and the total amount paid, along with your goggles fit snugly inside a very nice "Eagle Pair" case.



Goggles/Case
Upon opening the case you are welcome at the wonderful sight of your eye saviors along with a nice cloth included to help protect your goggles. The goggles themselves are protected inside another layer of plastic to protect dust from accumulating.



Conclusion
I hope this short review(as there wasn't much to review) gave you a good overview on what to expect when buying these particular goggles from Survival Lasers. Honestly, if you are going to venture into the world of Class IIIb+ lasers spending $40-$50(depending on the version) is a small time investment that will last you for years and could possibly protect your eyes in case of a freak accident happening. APPROVED

Unfortunately, I don't have lasers with me to test these goggles but I will use them once my labby arrives, so you folks are stuck with a picture of me looking like a scientist.....ok the Aloha shirts kind of give it away :)
Did you order your white lab coat yet?

I have the same pair, and another to cover the other wavelengths. Love them, excellent investment for sure.

if you ever get a LPM you should update this thread with laser power measured through them to verify manufacturer's OD claims

^Will do, thanks folks! :)

PS: For a 100-200mW laser OD4+ makes it basically completely safe correct? Did some research and read it only transfers 0.0001% of the light or something around that.

They usually run large so you may need one that's one size smaller. They don't cost much, I think I paid $12.98 for mine. You may also want to get a pocket protector, they come in 3 packs real cheap. It will make you look like you're an expert in something and some people will think you know what you're talking about. :crackup: I wish I could upload videos, but it's not practical on 3G, my upstream speed is real slow plus I pay for data.

I still use dragon lasers goggles for my class 4 blue. It SEEMS to do a good job reducing the dot to a dim yellow but they probably don't have as high of an OD rating as Eagle pair.
