Protect Yourself from High Energy Direct Beam and Low Energy Scatter Radiation

When it comes to safeguarding against radiation exposure in cath labs and interventional radiology settings, Scatter Armor disposable radiation shields stand out as crucial protective gear. These shields are designed to mitigate the risks associated with scattered radiation during these procedures, offering a vital defense for Radiologists and other healthcare professionals.

Radiation exposure is a significant concern in various medical procedures, including X-rays, fluoroscopies, and interventional radiology. Scatter Armor disposable shields serve as a barrier, minimizing the harmful effects of scattered radiation and reducing the potential long-term health risks associated with prolonged exposure.

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 info@zzmedical.com.
