Is Scatter Radiation Putting You at Risk

X-ray technologists are at risk of exposure to scatter radiation while performing diagnostic imaging procedures. Scatter radiation is a type of radiation that is emitted in various directions, rather than directly at the target area, and can potentially expose nearby organs and structures to radiation. One of the ways to minimize this exposure is by using appropriate shielding and limiting the amount of radiation used during the procedure.

Another important measure to protect against scatter radiation is for the X-ray technologist to wear protective eyewear. The eyewear, also known as radiation protective eyewear, is specifically designed to protect the eyes from scatter radiation. They are made of materials such as lead or tungsten that can effectively block or absorb the radiation before it reaches the eyes.

Wearing protective eyewear is especially important for X-ray technologists who frequently perform procedures in fluoroscopy or interventional radiography. This is because the higher the radiation dose, the greater the risk of developing cataracts or other eye problems. Additionally, even low levels of radiation exposure over an extended period of time can still increase the risk of developing eye problems and even cataracts.

It is important to note that the use of protective eyewear is not only important for the technologist but also for any other healthcare professional in the room during the procedure.  

In conclusion, protective eyewear is an essential piece of personal protective equipment for X-ray technologists. It is important for employers to provide and enforce the use of radiation protective eyewear to minimize the risk of exposure to scatter radiation and protect the health of their employees.

Foresight Saves Eyesight

There is an old poster hanging on the wall at the National Safety Council that says "Foresight Saves Eyesight." This old saying applies perfectly to today's X-ray Technologist and other Radiology Workers. Given what we now know today about how radiation affects the eye, it is absolutely critical to be prepared with a pair of Protective lead glasses.  This particular "best practice" is necessary to prevent the development of cataracts later in life. Research shows that the threshold for acceptable levels of radiation for the human eye is just 10 percent of what we thought it was a few years ago. That's a pretty steep change in acceptable exposure. Shielding your eyes from radiation is a must and, fortunately, you don't have to wear those clunky ol’ glasses that were sold decades ago.  Today, there are many varieties of radiation glasses that offer you comfort, visibility and great style. Browse them all on our easy to use website.

How to Measure Your Pupillary Distance (PD)

What is Pupillary Distance?

Pupillary distance (PD) measures the distance between the centers of your pupils. This measurement is used to determine where you look through the lens of your glasses and should be as accurate as possible. The average adult’s PD is between 54-74 mm; kids are between 43-58 mm. Your eye doctor will usually measure your PD during an eye exam. However, if it was not given to you, the below 5 steps will help you measure it yourself.

How to Measure Your PD?

  1. Stand 8 in. away from a mirror.
  2. Hold a ruler against your brow.
  3. Close your right eye then align the ruler’s 0 mm with the center of your left pupil.
  4. Look straight then close your left eye and open your right eye.
  5. The mm line that lines up to the center of your right pupil is your PD.

Why is Pupillary Distance Important?

Every set of prescription lenses has an “optical center,” which is determined by pupillary distance. This distance is used to determine where you look through the lens of your glasses and should be as accurate as possible. Your prescription may tell you your PD. But if the PD is not available use your friend or a mirror to help you figure it out.

Armed with your PD and prescription, you can shop atZ&Z Medical Glasses to find your perfect pair of Prescription Radiation Safety Glasses. If you have a question, you can always email
