  • Know your laser’s wavelength.
  • Determine the protection level needed based on your laser’s output parameters, or look for the recommended Optical Density (OD). This can be found in your laser manual.
  • Select a filter whose specifications match the above information. Choose one that offers the highest visibility (VLT).
