Selecting Laser & IPL Eye shields

There are many things to consider when choosing laser and IPL eye shields for clients or patients.

The first thing to consider is how close access is needed around the eye or face area. Some eye shields sit within the eye socket such as the IS-015 Laser Eye Shields and others sit outside of the socket such as the IS-014 Laser Eye Shields. The laser eye shields that sit within the socket allow closer access around the eye area however due to sitting within the socket are slightly less comfortable for the client compared to the ones that sit over the socket.

Durability is also a consideration. Laser eye shields can be produced in different ways with some of them being stronger and more durable than others. For example the IS-015 laser eyeshields have a virtually unbreakable frame that comes with a lifetime warranty.

Laser Eye Shield Replacement parts. When buying laser eye shields its useful to consider how easy it is to get spare parts as the straps will often break with usage or the rims or nasal pieces might need replaced.

Lastly it is important to ensure that they are tested to the relevant laser safety standards with the correct markings on the eyewear.
