Eye protection?

Hopefully all laser cuts happen internally, but sometimes metal may reflect stuff.

If I were getting safety gear (eyeglasses - as I expect power will drop off quickly at any distance, so only vision would be at risk - is this a correct assumption?), what would I need? I’m guessing it would be at the 10600nm wavelength?

Check out this Eye Protection thread. There is also a good discussion on other Safety Gear in this thread.
