Abstract : Four types of Hadron laser safety eyeshields were evaluated from the standpoint of adequacy for protecting personnel from accidental ocular exposure from most common lasers. The eyeshields were found to be adequate to protect personnel exposed to the direct beam, or reflections of the direct beam, of most commercially available lasers. Tests using several types of lasers revealed that the eyeshields had optical densities as specified by the manufacturer within the measurement capabilities of this Agency. (Author Modified Abstract)
