    X-Ray - Radiation lenses

    Can you get Plano lenses for a radiation tech to protect from radiation and x-rays WITHOUT being in a safety frame? Are these lenses only in glass? They were asking for lead free????

    Don't see the point in asking for lead free. Its not like the lead in the lens is a danger once its part of a lens.

    As far as I know the lead is what blocks it. Don't eat the lenses and they should be fine.

    You aren't going to get them too thin, as you need a certain thickness to get enough shielding, depending on what type of radiation they're working with.

    You can get them in free-form as well.

    Best bet is to follow the personal protective equipment requirements set forth by the manufacturer of the equipment and found in the operations manual. In fact, its the only bet.
