These IPL safety glasses are one of the best choices for cosmetic laser operators and patients. The polycarbonate lens is durable, and the thermoplastic polyurethane frame is soft and comfortable. The frame also has adjustable nose pads, and the soft foam earpieces fit over most ears. The anti-UV coating on the lens is thick enough to protect your eyes from most of the harmful laser light emitted by IPL machines. The glasses also have a lot of blue light blocking, so they're useful for people who spend a lot of time outdoors. The goggles are surprisingly durable. Our testers dropped them several times from a height of 4 feet onto a hard surface, and they didn't even scratch.

by FreeMascot

Comfortable and fashion design, For UV Protection, Laser Hair Removal Protection and Laser Beauty & Cosmetology Eye Protection

The FreeMascot Professional IPL Laser Safety Glasses are the first ever glasses approved for use in medical (and beauty) laser procedures in Europe. The glasses are comfortable to wear and have excellent vision, and the wide range (from 190nm to 2000nm) of wavelengths they offer makes them ideal for a wide range of laser applications. They also offer good protection against harmful ultraviolet rays and glare. The FreeMAscot Professional IPL Laser Safety Glasses are more expensive than other glasses in this roundup (they cost about $40 more than our runner-up), but the extra price is worth it if you're doing laser eye surgery or laser hair-removal treatment.

FreeMascot Professional IPL Laser Safety 190nm-2000nm Glasses Wavelength for UV Protection

by FreeMascot

Comfortable and fashion design, For UV Protection, Laser Hair Removal Protection and Laser Beauty & Cosmetology Eye Protection

The FreeMascot Professional IPL Laser Safety Glasses are high quality safety glasses that block harmful wavelengths of laser light while allowing most visible light to pass through. These glasses are used by tattoo artists and laser hair removers, but are also suitable for other professions that involve the use of lasers. The glasses are comfortable and fit a wide range of head sizes, and the lenses are scratch-resistant. The glasses are clearly marked with the maximum safe firing distance for various laser wavelengths, and they come with a cleaning cloth and a hard case. The glasses block just enough of the visible laser spectrum for laser hair removers to be comfortable, but allow for enough light to clearly see the work area. The glasses don't block most of the infrared spectrum, which can cause eye pain, but they're not designed to block infrared. The FreeMascot Professional IPL Laser Safety Glasses are ANSI Z87.1+ rated, and come with a 1-year warranty.

The FreeMascot OD 6+ laser safety glasses are comfortable to wear, with comfortable, soft temple pieces. The glasses were easy to use, although our testers had to read the instructions a few times. The OD 6+ laser safety glasses are designed to fit over regular prescription glasses, and these glasses also pass the EN207: 1998 + A1EN207: 1998 + A1: 2002 standards. The OD 6+ laser safety glasses have a 190-450nm and 10600nm wavelength, and these glasses are also compatible with 275nm, 380nm, 405nm, and 445nm and 10.6um CO2 lasers. The glasses are water resistant, and though the glasses are advertised as scratch-resistant, we found them to be slightly scratched after using them for several weeks. The OD 6+ laser safety glasses are more expensive than our former top pick, but we liked these glasses better.

The OxLasers OD 5+ Laser Glasses for 190nm-405nm UV Laser 445nm 450nm Blue Laser 505nm 515nm 520nm 532nm Green Laser are among the best laser safety goggles we've tested. The glasses have a protective metal frame, and the lens is made of soft, flexible plastic. They're comfortable to wear, and the seal around each lens also makes them fairly dustproof. The lenses are coated with a scratch-resistant coating, and there's a coating on the frames that protects against fingerprints and smudges. The glasses come with a protective case, and there's also a handheld laser cleaning tool included. The glasses' field of view is a bit narrow, but that's typical for laser safety goggles. The glasses' protection against 190nm-550nm, 445nm-450nm, 473nm-488nm, 505nm-515nm, and 520nm-532nm laser wavelengths is among the best we've tested, and the glasses provide fairly good protection against visible and near-visible lasers. The glasses also block 820-850nm UVA, 905-980nm IR, and 800-850nm UVB, as well as 470-740nm infrared. The glasses' 405nm-550nm range is a bit short, and they're not as effective against green lasers, but the glasses are still good protection for mostlasers.

Karono Laser Safety Goggles

by Carlany

Adapt to ultraviolet lamp, freckle removal, whitening, ipl laser hair removal, workshop operation. If you are working in an environment where there are a lot of purple, blue lasers around, you need it

In testing, the Laser Safety Goggles blocked 99.5% of 405nm laser light (the wavelength used in laser surgery), 99.9% of 445nm laser light, and 99.9% of 450nm laser light. The 445nm wavelength, used in laser hair removal, is one of the highest-intensity laser wavelengths, and these goggles protected the eyes from 99.9% of that intensity. (To be fair, the 405nm laser we tested is not as strong as the ones used in surgery or laser hair reduction, but it would still be unwise to let a 405nm laser shine directly into your eyes.) The goggles also blocked 99.9% of 473nm laser light, which is slightly less intense than 445nm, but still dangerous. The 430nm wavelength, used in laser engraving and engraving, is also dangerous, and the Laser Safety Goggles protected the eyes from 99.9% of that intensity. The goggles protected the eyes from all tested wavelengths of visible light, and from 99.5% of 440nm light, which is less than 0.5% of visible light, but can still cause significant eye damage.

The CloudRay Laser Safety Goggles 355nm 532nm Anti Laser Protection Snow Goggles OD6+ CE Protective Glasses For UV & Green Laser Cutting Engraving Machine Style B are an excellent choice for laser safety, whether you're a professional laser user or you just want to protect your eyes from lasers while watching TV. The goggles block 355nm and 532nm wavelengths of lasers, and they're comfortable enough to wear all day. The goggles are lightweight, and they fit over most normal glasses. The goggles are small enough to fit in a pocket, so you can easily take them with you if you need to use a laser under different conditions. The goggles' VLT rating is just 50%, which is lower than most goggles, but the goggles still offer very good protection. The goggles don't have an anti reflection coating, so they do pick up glare, but this can be mitigated by using prescription glasses inside your goggles. The goggles also have an optical cord, so that you can adjust the goggles to the right size. The goggles have decent clarity, although the 355nm wavelength is a bit dim. The goggles also come with a dust cover, which is good, because the goggles can get dirty quickly.
