IR heat lamps and eye damage

IR heat lamps and eye damage

I was considering obtaining an IR (infra red) heat lamp for constant heat while stretching but upon further Internet research I discovered that they apparently cause permanent eye damage over the long term. Apparently there are special goggles that can be used to protect the eyes from the IR light.

In another thread someone said the IR light that reflects off walls from the IR lamp Was causing his eyes to hurt. I wonder if the reflected light is problematic also.

The website I was looking at is http://goaskalice.columbia.edu/infrared-heat-lamps but MUST be viewed from a computer browser or cellphone browser that spoofs a desktop browser. Otherwise you’ll be redirected to mobile.goaskalice.columbia.edu/ and won’t be able to view the page.

Any thoughts on the IR heat lamps situation?

The following is the relevant text from the site:


The potential hazards of infrared heat bulbs, lamps, and radiators are mainly to your skin and eyes. Because of the intense radiant heat emitted, prolonged exposure can result in severe burns to the skin. Your eyes are very susceptible to high-intensity short-wave infrared radiation as well. Long-term exposure to infrared radiation can permanently damage the eyes. Goggles with special infrared absorbing glass should be worn by people experiencing long-term exposure to infrared radiation.

Since these lamps generate intense heat, and contain a significant amount of pressure, they can easily shatter. If you are considering a quartz type radiator, look for a low-pressure model. In addition, you should protect people and surroundings by employing proper enclosures, shields, lenses, and screens. Finger marks and scratches from handling should also be avoided as it causes weakening of the bulb, and more frequent shattering.

Looking to get cozy with an infrared lamp? Here are some more safety tips:

Twenty to thirty minutes is recommended as the maximum exposure for most body applications of heat lamps.
The lamp should never be placed closer than 18 inches from the surface toward which it is directed.
Do not use infrared lamps near an infant, or a sleeping or unconscious person. They should also not be used by people with sensitive skin or poor blood circulation.
Do not place the bulb directly over the exposed person unless a protective screen is placed between the lamp and the user.
When in operation for extended periods, connect the lamp to a porcelain socket.
Keep infrared lamps away from combustible materials, and materials adversely affected by drying action.

IR lamps are widely sold for health problems like stiff backs and shoulders in the UK and Germany, without problems. I agree that it’s not a good idea to look directly into the bulb, and in fact you wouldn’t because it’s a bit like looking directly into the sun - if you try it you’ll automatically turn away quickly. Reflected light has never been a problem for me. Just don’t point the lamp at a white wall that directs it straight back into your eyes. With a normal 150 watt bulb the spread of light is going to mostly be on your body, so no problem with anything other than ‘spill over’ light hitting a wall, and that isn’t very intense.


Heat makes the difference between gaining quickly or slowly for some guys, or between gaining slowly instead of not at all for others. And the ideal penis size is 7.6" BPEL x 5.6" Mid Girth.
