    Eyesight is important.
    While all the jammers are technically eyesafe (minus LE10) a few of us have experienced some unpleasant symptoms after a long meet. Myself, mrkookm, and snoopy have all purchased these glasses and are happy with the quality. (correct me if I'm wrong guys)

    haha just wondering if theres a certain material makes them block the IR light or is it because the lenses are a shade of green or something
    like if you had a pair of polarized sunglasses would they have the same effect

    Nothing more than a filter. They can filter our certain light ranges.

    Is this meant for shooters (I would imagine the infrared back from laser jammers is weak at 1000') or for drivers who get shot by a LIDAR gun?

    Can you put these on your headlights with that Veil stuff and make your car invisible? (j/k)

    I am wondering if there is a need for lidar safety glasses and if there is what is recommended.

    This would be during the install stage for the chance of exposure.

    For installation, I would avoid powering them on in your field of view.

    For testing I would ABSOLUTELY recommend safety glasses or at minimum very dark sunglasses — shooting your car often involves staring directly at the transmitter for a long period of time. You only get one pair of eyes, don’t risk it!

    Thanks @jdong! Do you have a recommendation off Amazon? I see lots of glasses for lidar there. All I see from a transponder I saw pictured on the Forum is "Class 1M" device.

    I have suffered from the sunburned eyes after testing. If i go blind @The Only Sarge will need to come visit me at the Blind institute. I bought IR protection a while back. Looking in the scope for hours drains me eyes for days.

    I have to find where I ordered, but with shipping they were less than $20.


    EDIT: I ordered from www.rajsupply.com

    I bought a pair years ago and eventually sold them, thinking they weren’t a big deal. Then after a bunch more testing/videos, my eyes would start to hurt.

    I’ve bought another pair since and keep them my by lidiar guns so they’re convenient to grab for testing from now on. They look a little goofy, but I definitely recommend them too!

    These are the ones I purchased on Amazon. Seem the same as what everyone else on the forum is buying. I haven't used them yet in testing, but they are made for the wavelength our transmitters use.

    I blew off the need for IR Glasses until I went to the doctor for constant headaches a few years back and they recommended me get my eyes checked. When I went for my eye test the doctor asked me if I worked outdoors in the sun all day... When I told him no he seems confused and stated that he saw burns in my eyes from over exposure to IR light. Since then I started wearing glasses for all testing. Don't play games with your eyes because this damage that can occur is not reversible.
