This document is applicable to protectors intended to provide protection against accidental exposure to laser radiation within the wavelength range 180Â nm to 1Â mm. It specifies the requirements, test methods and marking. Protectors intended for adjustment work on lasers are included in the scope of this document and are marked in the same way as other protectors, but selection of appropriate eyewear for a specific application is a choice of the user. Laser protective filters used as viewing windows in laser equipment machinery or incorporated into optical instruments such as operating microscopes and loupes that may be used for deliberate viewing of laser radiation as part of their function are outside the scope of this document. Laser radiation in the wavelength range below 180Â nm is absorbed in air, therefore eye and face protection should not be required. This document is applicable to devices intended for patient protection during medical laser procedures except for treatment in the periorbital area. Guidance on eye protectors for patients (including those used for periorbital treatment) is given in ISO/TRÂ 22463.

This document applies to all eye protectors intended for eye protection against hazards during playing or instructing in the sports of squash, racquetball and squash 57 and sports with similar hazards and no greater risks. It applies to eye protectors that incorporate prescription lenses but has no specific tests for eye protectors designed for use over spectacles. It specifies requirements and testing for materials, performance, marking of eye protectors and information to be supplied by the manufacturer. Information on the selection and use of eye protectors for squash, racquetball and squash 57 is given in Annex A. This document does not apply to a) sports eye protectors designed for use over prescription spectacles, b) eye protectors for other occupational applications, c) eye protectors without lenses, d) eye protectors for sports where the hazards are unrelated to the hazards in or involve greater risks than squash, racquetball and squash 57, and e) eye protectors with gradient-tinted lenses because they are not appropriate for squash, racquetball or squash 57.
