    I use a pair of red goggles when I need to go out of the darkroom. They preserve the low light vision needed with no adjustment time from a bright room into the darkroom. Been using them for many years.

    Interesting idea. Like welding goggles? Or, where do you get the red goggles?

    I bought them years ago at a local camera store. They are made specifically for darkroom use and have a ruby red lens and red side shields that fit to the face. Kind of like safety goggles for wood and metal working. I have no idea if they are still made or who would sell them.

    Reminds me of Pittsburgh Steel from the master himself (W. Eugene Smith):

    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.
