Revision Military’s New Laser Eye Pro

Revision Tactical LazrBloc GF-8

Revision Military is now offering a measure of eye protection from laser assaults. The company developed a patented dye for use in eyewear lenses that can block a significant amount of green laser energy. The resulting product is called the LazrBlock GF-8 Laser Protective Lens.

The company is already known for making high quality ballistic eye protection (and developing a military exoskeleton), and the dye can be applied to the same lenses to provide protection from both shrapnel and lasers. The LazrBlock GF-8 Laser Protective Lens is rated to stop 99.9% of green laser energy and more than 99% of the “most powerful Near-Infrared (NIR) component of commercially available green lasers.” The NIR energy exists outside of the visible spectrum.

A side benefit of the LazrBlock GF-8 Laser Protective Lens is that it provides better visible light transmission and less color distortion when compared to other lenses on the market that offer laser protection. This allows the lenses to be used during darker conditions than otherwise one would be able.

According to research, the FAA recorded more than 6,660 incidents of laser “strikes” on commercial aircraft while the British Airline Pilots’ Association advised that half of its members had experienced a laser “attack” in the prior 12 months. There have also been numerous incidents of criminals assaulting law enforcement officers with green lasers.

    Sorry China, looks like we foiled your laser gun technology and plan to blind the Military…..hahaha.

      Don’t e childish .Laser protection coatings have been standard on milspec optics for some 20 years now . But all including these googles are meant to protect against low power aiming and pointing lasers not something weaponized

        Not really.

        Unless you know something I don’t, almost none of the glasses in the military have laser coating protections on them. Do you have a source for that claim?

    Tesla armor is next.

    Finally, I can walk the streets without fear of being attacked by lasers!

  • Bob

    It sounds a little ridiculous, but if higher powered lasers become more common, I wouldn’t mind such a coating on my glasses.

  • noob

    But with the blast shield down, I can’t even see!

  • Joe Schmoe

    Sorry, I meant ballistic sunglasses, like these.

    Would wearing these interfere with the user’s ability to see his the dot from own green laser sight?

      How about red dot or holographic sights? The colour might be blocked on those too. But in any case, any frequency of light with a high enough intensity is harmful to look at, so what’s stopping these would-be dazzlers from developing and using lasers in frequencies that aren’t currently blocked by goggles like these?
