Stratford, CT – Palmero Healthcare, a Hu-Friedy subsidiary, is pleased to announce two new additions to the Provision® Safety Eyewear product line that will provide dental practitioners and patients with critical eye protection during routine bonding procedures.

ProVision® Eyesaver Sleeks™ Red Frame/Red Bonding Lens (Ref#16SLK): This line of ultra-light goggles is engineered to fit over prescription eyewear, with adjustable temples for a broader facial fit and integrated side shields for all-around eye protection. To complement the existing clear (Ref#17SLK), grey (Ref#3SLK) and green (Ref#18SLK) goggle options, Palmero now offers a red option that filters out the harmful blue light rays generated during bonding procedures. Available May 20.

 ProVision® Infinity™ Replacement Lens and Bonding Lens (Ref#3613BR): This upscale line of eyewear is designed specifically to reduce fogging and static, with unique tilt and telescoping features that ensure the eyewear can adapt comfortably and optimally to any facial structure. In addition to the existing ProVision® Infinity™ clear replacement lens (Ref#361R), Palmero has extended the product line to include a new bonding replacement lens that provides full protection from harmful blue light rays. Available May 20.

Most dental products used today during bonding and whitening procedures require the absorption of optical radiation in the wavelength range of 350-500 nm to set. Unfortunately, this blue light can cause moderate to severe damage to the retina and optical nerve for both the dental professional and the patient. Without the proper optical protection, the retina is at risk for burning, accelerated retinal aging, and macular degeneration. Additionally, the cornea is at risk for injuries, photokeratitis, and even the development of cataracts or lens opacification.

These new additions to Palmero’s existing ProVision® line multi-framed safety glasses provide new orange-red lens options to filter out and block UV and blue wavelengths and protect the eyes when curing resin-based restorative materials. Like all ProVision® products, the new additions have been carefully designed to meet the standards of Palmero’s “Four Cs” for safety eyewear: Clarity + Comfort + Convenience = Compliance.
