High Demand from Medical and Military Sectors Boosts Laser Safety Glasses Market

Blog Description

Laser safety glasses are used in research and education, medical, military, and industrial laser applications to protect the eyes from the hazardous effect of scattered laser light. The increasing application areas for laser technology have led to stringent safety regulations for workers, which is in turn boosting the demand for laser safety glasses. Laser safety glasses are used in the healthcare sector for various applications such as dentistry or dermatology.

Rise in Eye Injuries to Fuel Laser Safety Glasses Market

Laser safety glasses are required in any situation where the eyes are can be exposed to laser radiation. Since the human eye is very sensitive, even a small amount of exposure to a laser beam can permanently injure the eyes, and thus laser safety glasses are high in demand. Protective eyewear has become mandatory as part of safety programs to avoid the risk of damaging the retina and the skin around the eyes. Eyes need to be protected against mists, fumes, gases, particles, ultraviolet light, and vapors. However, sometimes laser safety glasses do not provide protection against vapors and liquids, which acts as a challenge to the global laser safety glasses market.

Laser Goggles to Make Dermatologic Surgeries Safer

Laser safety glasses have made surgeries safer by reducing the threat of damaging the eyes when using laser beams for various treatments. For instance, Philips launched 808nm laser goggles that can be used by dermatologists as they perform laser hair removal procedures. Since the laser beam used for the hair removal procedure is intense enough for the eyes to be affected, it becomes very essential for the patient and the doctor to protect their eyes.

Brief Snapshot of Scope of Laser Safety Glasses Market:
