A study was performed to assess 13 different eye protection filters, glasses and shields, intended for use with dental material light curing procedures as a follow-up to a similar investigation in 2006. To assess the safety and efficiency, spectra of curing lamps and filters were measured using a spectroradiometric instrument and integrating sphere.
