Four Basic Types of Glasses
lampwork-glassblowing-eye-protection-glasses lampwork-eye-protection-glasses 921B Boroscope Lens Rec Specs MAXX Silver Frame Glasses
Rose Didymium
We and no one carries anymore, there are a lot better glasses out here.
Enhanced Didymium
MMore of the Didymium (we carry 202ACE) standard glass workers glasses, blocks bright yellow flare, but not much UV and no IR.
Most soft glass beadmakers use this filtering lens.

Not sure how much protection you require? Click Here to see a NIOSH report.  Read Discussion and Conclusion and Recommendations at bottom of report.
A Shade 2, 3 or 5 Lens
Blocks UV and IR, but not the filtering of the bright yellow flare found in didymium, you may still need didymium. Three ways to add this UV and IR protection to your didymium glasses

1) Clip on - see the above picture.

 2) Fitover - large frames fits over other glasses. glassblowers-eye-protection-safety-glasses
3) Or use the Green ACE IR pictured to the right, it does it all in one.

What's the difference between Shade 2, 3 or 5? Click Here to see a chart of the differences. You will notice minimal difference in UV and IR protection between shades but a whole lot of reduced visibility as the shade darkens. In other words - do you want to give up a lot of your visibility for just a little more protection? This is a decision you need to make.
Green ACE IR
Formally Boroscopes
now replaced by the better Green ACE IR. these glasses does it all, blocks yellow flare, UV and IR. See bottom of this page to see more info about Green ACE IR
Also available in split lens

921B Boroscope Lens Rec Specs MAXX Silver Frame GlassesMore about GreenACE IR formally Boroscopes
Green ACE IR/span> are designed to meet the need for the extra UV and IR protection needed when working on borosilicate glass. Green ACE IR are specially formulated glass filter lenses that the manufacture exclusively owns. These lenses have been developed for the lampworking and glassblowing markets. This revolutionary product is greatly lighter than conventional laminated products and comes in a full coverage lens which is a higher quality design because there are no areas without shading. Green ACE IR should be worn when working on hard glass types where regular didymium lenses are not adequate due to the fact of insufficient filtration of ultra violet and infrared absorption.
Liability Disclaimer:
We are not optometrists and can only make suggestions concerning eye protection. There are many types of eye protection available. The manufacture and Sundance Art Glass does not accept any liability concerning eye damage arising from the use, misuse, or non-use of any eyewear products we sell. We can only recommend the highest level of protection.

It is common for people working with borosilicate glass, (when the flame is extra bright, or when fuming metals onto the glass) to use the below glass in conjunction with didymium.
