Eyewear for protection against intense light sources used on humans and animals for cosmetic and medical applications -- Part 2: Guidance for use


ISO 12609-2:2013 gives guidance and information to users, manufacturers, suppliers, and safety advisors on the selection and use of eye protectors for intense light source (ILS) equipment used on humans and animals for cosmetic and medical applications against excessive exposure to optical radiation in the spectral range 250 nm to 3 000 nm, with the exception of laser radiation.

ISO 12609-2:2013 provides guidance on selection of an eye protector expected to cope with the majority of applications and a more rigorous procedure for determining appropriate eye protection against spectral outputs from ILS equipment.
