Eye protection for indoor growers

Indoor farming requires high levels of full spectrum LED light, in turn, increased levels of UV light. Without the right eye protection, an increase in UV light can create damage to a grower’s vision. The greater the amount of light the more likely the grower will experience vision wash-out and tired eyes resulting in diminished crop observations. In commercial growing industries, high exposure to UV rays can become a health and safety concern.

The main reason to use grow room glasses is the irreparable damage it does to your eyes. It’s not noticeable right away, but comes on gradually. Different UV light causes various types of damage to the eyes. UVA causes cataracts, UVB causes eye burns. UVC causes eye burns as well, according to Washington University. Another good reason to use grow room glasses is that most workers who spend much of their time in greenhouses need protection as required by the OSHA safety standards.
