Lead Glasses for X-Rays

Reducing long term radiation exposure to your eyes is critical.

Lead glasses play a crucial role in that process. The National & International Conferences on Radiation Protection (ICRP & NCRP) have set recommended standards: “Lens/Eye Dose should be limited to 15 RADs per year (ICRP/NCRP).” They have also concluded that “Cataracts occur with cumulative dose between 200 to 500 RADs (ICRP/NCRP).”

Based on an average Lens/Eye Dose of 62 milleRads per hour and an average of 576 hours of Fluoroscopy per year, some clinicians receive doses of 35.7 RADs annually. In a 30-year career, this amounts to 1,071 RADs if the operator is standing upright and far more if seated or crouched (about 5,184 Rads).

AADCO’s leaded glasses are manufactured in our in-house optical lab to the highest standard in the industry. They offer the superior protection of a highly quality controlled, optically correct lead glass lens. They feature lighter weight and better balance than many other leaded radiation protection glasses, making them the industry’s premium product.

Considerations When Selecting Lead Glasses

When planning to purchase lead glasses, several key factors should be considered to ensure optimal eye safety. The first consideration should be the lead equivalency of the lens, which provides the necessary protection against ionizing radiation.

The type of radiation exposure you’re dealing with will dictate the style of radiation protection glasses required. For instance, exposure from all directions may necessitate glasses with side shields to protect from peripheral radiation. In contrast, direct exposure from the front might allow for simpler leaded glasses without side shields.

The design of the frames is also critical. There are fitover lead glasses that can be worn over your regular prescription glasses. If the radiation protection glasses have side shields, ensure they have an appropriate lead equivalency to meet safety requirements.

In addition to the protection levels, choosing lead glasses that account for peripheral vision is vital, ensuring that vision is not overly restricted. This is necessary for maintaining awareness and safety in your work environment.

Lastly, personal comfort, fit, and style can also be important factors because they influence the likelihood of consistent use. Comfortable leaded glasses that fit well are more likely to be worn regularly, providing constant protection. Choosing a pair that you find appealing and comfortable for extended wear is essential.
