Laser Safety Goggles are a must when working with Class IV lasers. The blink response of a human eye is 150-250ms, far longer than the amount of time required for a highly intense and focused laser beam to cause a serious and often a permanent damage to the cornea or retina. Even an indirect exposure to laser radiation through a reflection from a shiny surface may cause a serious damage. Laser Goggles exploit the limited wavelength range of the laser to filter out the laser light but allow ambient light to pass through. Thus it is important to choose the right goggle designed specifically for the particular laser. Also important to note that goggles may not protect from direct beam exposure. FindLight recommends wearing protective gear at all times while in the vicinity of an operating laser. Be safe!
