Evaluation of eye protection in occupational use of non-coherent optical sources
Ellen Bruzell, Terje Christensen and Bjørn Johnsen | September 5th 2015
Blue light and ultraviolet radiation can cause acute eye hazards. Further, increasing evidence suggests that blue light contributes to chronic diseases, such as cataracts and age-related macular degeneration. The use of optical radiation protective devices, such as goggles, is a simple means to avoid eye damage when working with high irradiance sources.
