Bruce Hickman, of Sun Tan Hut, in Rome, Georgia, also shared his similar experience. “Back a few years ago I learned the hard way about protecting my eyes when changing lamps. I was changing a lamp in our stand-up booth and left the lamps on while I did so. It only took a couple of minutes to change out the lamps and then I went about my day. Later that night, my eyes felt like I had needles in them. Burning, watering and so painful I couldn’t close them to sleep. I had to sit in my living room all night in complete darkness because even the smallest amount of light caused severe pain. The next morning, I made my way to my optometrist for a good scolding and some unpleasant eye meds. I learned my lesson on how important eye protection is eve for the smallest maintenance job on any tanning unit.”
Every distributor sells maintenance glasses for under $10. Maintenance glasses are wrap-around to protect ambient light and easily fit any size face. For just $10, you can prevent eye burns from happening to your bed tech. A pair should be kept under the front counter for staff members checking reports that lamps are out in a bed, as well as for lamp changes. In addition to blocking UV light, maintenance glasses also are safety glasses, which is important if a lamp were to shatter when taking a lamp out of a bed.
