Whether you are completing an x-ray for the first time or are completing your hundredth, you undoubtedly understand the importance of doing the best job possible. Your patients and colleagues are depending on you to do your best work, so it is critical to put yourself in a position to consistently excel.
Part of that equation is arming yourself with the best possible equipment. While you can’t necessarily choose the x-ray equipment you use, you may have some options on the equipment that you wear. One of those things is your radiation safety glasses.
At AttenuTech®, we understand the importance of radiation safety glasses when completing your work. Because of this, we want to share several tips on wearing radiation safety glasses when completing x-rays. Doing this can help protect you and help you focus on the work in front of you.
Things to Keep in Mind When Wearing Radiation Safety Glasses
Radiation safety glasses are extremely important during an x-ray procedure. However, not all radiation safety glasses are created alike.
For starters, however, the most important tip is this: find radiation safety glasses that protect your eyesight. It is a basic point, but it is extremely important. If your radiation safety glasses don’t sufficiently protect your eyes, you will be putting yourself in danger. Even if you feel like your eyes are protected, you must confirm that your eyewear is strong enough to protect yourself from harmful radiation rays.
In our store, you can find plenty of models that will protect your eyes in the most challenging of situations. For example, the lenses on our radiation safety glasses contain Schott Glass 0.75mm PB lead equivalency. This can go a long way in protecting your eyes as you complete your day-to-day work. You can find these lenses in models like the Q200, 15011, and the Nike Brazen collection.
The next tip focuses on you and your preferences. You’ll want to find radiation safety glasses that let you see clearly. This makes your glasses less distracting, allowing you to focus on the work at hand.
For instance, at AttenuTech, you will find that our radiation safety glasses contain high-quality and distortion-free lenses. Being distortion-free, these lenses won’t distract you as you are focusing on your work. They are also extremely comfortable, as many models contain rubber or adjustable nose pads.
Finally, make sure your glasses are comfortable. If you are wearing your radiation glasses for many hours every day, you want to be as comfortable as possible. The glasses in our collection, including the frames mentioned above, can help you with this task. They contain things like rubber and adjustable nose pads for extra comfort. You can even add anti-fog coating for additional comfort. The choice is yours.
Radiation safety glasses are must-have tools as you’re completing your important work. No matter the x-ray procedure, I encourage you to use the tips above to find and wear a high-quality pair of radiation safety glasses.
