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.

So Important to Protect Your Thyroid Gland While Working in Medical Imaging

The Thyroid collar is an essential protection accessory required to protect your thyroid gland. Your thyroid gland is one of the most sensitive organs in your body when it comes to radiation exposure. In fact, radiation exposure is a proven risk factor for thyroid cancer.  This small gland impacts almost all the body’s metabolic processes. Having the location close to the skin and within the trajectory of scatter radiation, it is susceptible to radiation damage and radiation-induced cancer. Moreover, the incidence of thyroid cancer has dramatically increased over the past 4 decades.

Despite these facts, many technologists are not using a thyroid shield that fits correctly or wearing one at all. Even patients are not being provided the opportunity to wear a thyroid shield for protection when the body part being x-rayed is not in the field of view. Z&Z Medical are experts in the industry when it comes to protection and for radiology healthcare professionals and the patients that are imaged. The thyroid gland should be protected from exposure with shielding whenever possible as a healthcare radiology provider and for the patients that are imaged in imaging centers every day. Make sure you have adequate protection for everyone involved. Partner with Z&Z Medical who delivers superior quality and dependable protection with every purchase.

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
