Eyes are 4 times more sensitive to ionising radiation than the rest of the body. The threshold for radiation to the eye is 0.50 GY or 20 mSv per annum.
Interventional radiologists and cardiologists with high workloads are at increased risk of exceeding this limit without adequate eye protection.
All of our leaded eyewear are manufactured onsite at Protech Medical by trained opticians and come as standard in 0.75 mm Pb lead equivalence to maximise protection to the eye.
Included with each purchase; Eyewear case, cleaning cloth, head strap and 1 year manufacturer’s warranty against defects.
