We all know we use bright lights when treating our patients. We work very close to our patients and it’s quite easy to shine our lights in their eyes. For years I’ve had my patients wear safety glasses to protect them from debris that can be produced when treating them, as well as, the bright lights we use.

We are often shocked by how many patients want to take the glasses with them as they find them so comfortable! If you’re not already using tinted safety glasses for your patients, give them a try—I bet your patients will love them. My personal favorite pair comes from MCR Safety (KD312).
