New laser safety goggles with F27 frame: laservision cooperates with HEINE Optotechnik

Lasers are widely used in almost all medical disciplines, both in diagnosis and therapy. laservision now offers a new laser safety goggle as F27 frame, which can easily be combined with Heine loupes thanks to a newly developed adapter. Thus, even very small laser applications can be performed under best visibility conditions.

The laser safety goggles with binocular loupes of different magnification levels were developed in cooperation with HEINE Optotechnik. The achromatic optics of the HEINE loupes ensure a sharp image. With the sophisticated flip-up function, the binocular loupes can be folded upwards out of the field of view if required.

The safety goggles from laservision are also suitable to wear over prescription glasses and are available for almost all wavelengths and applications in medicine. If an additional light source is required, it can be optionally combined with the HEINE LED LoupeLight.
