3 different options to wear a radiation eye monitor - Headband, clip onto glasses or stick to glasses with adhesive tape.

The eye monitor measures doses to the lens of the eye from photon radiation and beta radiation.

By wearing an eye dosimeter, workers can track their eye radiation exposure levels over time and ensure that they are within the safe limits prescribed by regulatory standards. It also enables employers and radiation safety officers to assess the effectiveness of radiation shielding measures and implement necessary adjustments to protect workers' eyes. This is important because the eyes are particularly sensitive to radiation and can be vulnerable to damage if exposed to excessive doses.

The use of eye monitors contributes to maintaining the health and safety of workers in occupations such as interventional radiology, interventional cardiology, medical imaging, and other industries that use ionising radiation.

The eye monitor is used in addition to other monitors that measure radiation exposure to the torso. We recommend pairing the eye monitor with our OSL whole body monitor.

Directly measures

Eye dose - Hp(3)

Minimum detectable dose (MDD)

50 µSv

Minimum reportable dose (MRD)*

Uncertainty at the MRD**


* MRD is based on the Limit of Quantification as defined by “Determination and Interpretation of Characteristic Limits for Radioactivity Measurements” (IAEA/AQ/48)
** Uncertainty at the MRD is based on the 95% confidence limit
