One topic that is of the utmost importance to our customers (and therefore, to Techno-Aide) is the protection of a technologist's eyes. More than ever, our industry is acknowledging the extreme sensitivity of the human eye in regards to radiation. After the Internal Commission of Radiological Protection announced that the threshold of acceptable radiation exposure to the eye was much lower than they previously suggested, technologists have understandably expressed a greater level of concern when it comes to shielding their eyes. Techno-Aide has made it our mission to provide not only superior protection but also a greater level of comfort to our customers to ensure that their job can be performed in an environment of unparalleled safety. Let's take a look at what you can expect from donning some of our amazing protective radiation glasses.
Safety Above All
The very reason you're putting on those x-ray glasses in the first place is to protect your eyes. The risk of early cataract development is a justified concern for the modern technologist. With our protective eyewear, you can be sure you're getting the shielding you need to be safe. Our lead glasses provide .75mm Pb equivalency to go above and beyond the shielding suggested by the ICRP. Thickness is combined with larger lenses to provide even more protection.
You might be tempted to think that with all of that protection radiology glasses are providing you, they must be sacrificing something in way of comfort, right? Absolutely not! After all, what good is wearing protective eyewear if it is so cumbersome and bulky that it interferes with your job performance? Our radiation glasses are not only lightweight but they’re also designed to put less pressure and friction on the bridge of the nose and back of the ears.
And Why Not Do It In Style?
If you’ve had experience with older, outdated protective eyewear, then you’re already too familiar with how they looked. Let’s just say that they weren’t exactly making fashion statements. Today’s x-ray lenses not only give you protection and comfort but they also give you a choice. Sporty, smart, sleek - whatever look you want from your glasses, you can find that and more. While it might not be at the top of the list of things you think of when ordering protective eyewear, it’s certainly doesn’t hurt to be able to have some fashionable options to choose from.
Since standards for eye protection have changed, so too has the advancement of radiology protective eyewear. Maximum protection and comfort are right at your fingertips. If you haven’t upgraded your radiation glasses, wait no longer. Come check out Techno-Aide’s lead glass offerings today to enter the modern age of protective eyewear.
