I tried out my second pair of laser strike protection glasses the other night. They're green which protects against red/green/blue lasers, but are a bit darker than my previous pair making them a little harder to see through at night, but I could still see pretty well (well enough to make an approach to a sparsely lighted part of the airport) They put the world in a soft green glow (much easier on my eyes) which is kinda weird, but cool.
My previous pair were orange which only protects against green/blue lasers, but lets in more visible light making them easier to see through at night. The problem was the orange color kind of bothered my eyes. It did make the world look like it was on fire though which was sort of trippie!
I wear prescription glasses so I got these in a flip-up clip-on design. The idea (hope) being that I can flip them down at the first sight of a laser before I get hit in the eye?
Having seen a few lasers (but fortunately never having had one hit the cockpit) I'd been contemplating getting these for a while. What got me to finally get them was an incident a couple months ago where a local pilot was hit by a green laser sending him to the hospital afterwards due to a "tingling" in his eyes. Apparently green lasers can actually damage your eyes!
So, one more thing to protect against! Douchebags with laser pointers!
