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.
