Light curing is part of every clinician's daily routine. Therefore, it is important to use eye protection to reduce the risk of light-induced eye damage. Unfortunately, only about 2/3 of dental professionals use eye protection*. Make it easy to protect yourself in the clinic and have glasses available where light-curing is done.
Radiation from curing lights poses a real risk of radiation-related eye damage - both acute and chronic. Dental care workers are exposed to repeated radiation. Light-induced retinal damage does not only occur acutely but can also be a result of accumulated radiation over a longer period.
