Radiation protective eyewear is a must if your eyes will be exposed to scattered, direct, or reflected laser radiation. There are three basic kinds of laser radiation.
Direct laser radiation happens when there is contact with a beam that directly comes from a laser. It is never good to get hit by a direct beam, whether accidentally or on purpose. Then, there is indirect or reflected laser radiation, which comes from a reflected beam, which typically carries only a fraction of the direct beam’s strength. However, it can still cause serious damage to the eyes.
Finally, there is scattered laser radiation, which is the same as reflected laser radiation, except it does not come from a reflected surface, but rather a diffuse one. For example, if you enter a dark room, turn your flashlight on, and point it toward your ceiling, you will see scattered light bouncing off the ceiling and lighting up the entire room — that’s essentially a type of reflection. There are lasers that can cause blindness or permanent eye damage — even with scattered radiation! — so you have to be careful. Take extra caution not to let the beam directly hit you.
As a person who works in an environment where we are frequently exposed to lasers, I am grateful that Kemper Medical offers affordable laser safety glasses. I was able to purchase them without having to cut back on personal expenses or work overtime just to get the money to buy them. These radiation protection glasses are necessary for protecting the eyes against harmful radiations.
I recommend these protective eyewear to anyone who works or stays in an area where a laser connected to a power source is also present. Keep them on at all times, even when the power source is turned off. Take these glasses with you even if there are no signs around telling people to bring radiation protection glasses. It is better to be safe than sorry. After all, it takes just several nanoseconds for the laser to damage your eyes. Never neglect safety. Keep your eyes protected at all times.
Radiation protection glasses can be quite expensive. Because I have a family and small children to feed and send to school, I am always in a tight budget. What great joy I had when I found out that there was a company who sold glasses for a great price.
Kemper Medical offers high quality medical supplies at affordable prices. They offer low-cost alternatives to branded laser safety glasses and other products. They are a global distributor of premium medical equipment from some of the major manufacturers. They have built a good reputation as a medical device distributor.
They understand our need to purchase effective, reliable, and safe products without going over our budget. Their prices are low because they don’t waste money on excessive marketing and advertising. They operate on a razor thin margin. They can help us find and buy the things we need without shelling out a lot of money.
When I found out that the company was founded in 2008 by Greg Kemper, who used to work as a radiology department manager and was adept with X-rays, computed tomography, and ultrasound tech, I was convinced this was the company for me.
Because of his work background, he knows how expensive medical equipment can be. He also understands the need of people to find good buys. This is why Kemper Medical offers a variety of products at a fraction of the cost of their branded counterparts. Their products are shown on their online catalog. I was able to browse the catalog and compare products.
It is actually pretty easy to place an order. I simply emailed them and received a response right away. The company can be contacted via phone or fax other than email.
Keep in mind that eye protection is highly important. The eyes are obviously among the most sensitive parts of the body. Without them, we will have a hard time moving around and functioning normally.
So if you are like me whose work requires being exposed to radiation on a regular basis, it is highly crucial that you wear laser safety glasses. If you use an X-ray machine at work, you also need radiation protection glasses. Do not think that X-rays are not damaging, because they are.
