Using Eye Protection During Laser Treatments?

Some doctors use metal protection for the eyes and the lids are lasered. Others do not and just work as close to the eye lid as possible. Do you have any comments on this?

Eye protection critical during Laser Treatments!

+1

Eye protection is extremely important for both operator and patient with laser and light device use. Different devices have different requirements with metal shields necessary for some and non-metal appropriate for others. Radiofrequency devices such as alma accent and thermage do not require the use of eye shields.
