Green laser safety glasses typically refer to laser safety eyewear that pertains to lasers falling in the range of 575nm - 495nm.
Green lasers are some of the most dangerous as our eyes are the most sensitive to green. It should be noted, two lasers with the same name "Copper Vapor" may be lasers with different wavelengths - always refer to the wavelength and not the name of the laser (although it is often specified in conjunction with the laser).
Below we will discuss the trade-offs specifically regarding our "green" laser safety glasses and goggles you might find helpful. Here are a few common green lasers:
- 532nm laser
- Double YAG laser (532nm)
- Argon laser
- KTP laser
For general trade-offs among polycarbonate, glass, and dielectric coated laser safety glasses, please refer to our general guide: How to Choose Laser Safety Glasses. For convenience, the graphic below illustrates the optical density notation with our products:

Please reach out if there is any uncertainty. Ask your laser safety officer (LSO) or call us directly to speak to our in-house laser safety expert.
Here is a chart of the different laser safety eyewear (by SKU), against the Optical Density (OD) protection for our green laser safety glasses.
Green Laser Safety Glasses Selection:
OD 6+ @ 190-532 nm
OD 6+ @ 10,000-11,000 nm
Visible Light Transmission:
Filter 130Optical Density:
OD 7+ @ 190-534 nm
OD 5+ @ 850-1100 nm
The 110 filter is our most selling product. It has an OD of 6+ from 190-532nm while are the same time still having a high visible light transmission (VLT). This is particularly useful for working in dark environments. The 130 can be preferable if this is not a concern or you're looking for more protection and less VLT. The glass options can also work well depending on the wavelength. See the dielectric coated options below:
Filter 325Optical Density:
OD 6+ @ 532 nm
SKU #: 100-xx-330
If you need protection from multiple laser safety wavelengths, or want to avoid compromising VLT for protection, the dielectric coated glasses may be your best option. Shop our entire selection of laser safety glasses.
