Default schematics, informational sites, etc.

hello I am new to lasers and wanted to start learning all i can. Here is my background, I am visually impaired so it is challenging for me to do most things. But, I do not let it slow me down. I am looking for any websites or someone who can give me pointers in being successful with making lasers and studying them as that's what I wanna go to college for.

welcome! i admire your aspirations. lasers are a fascinating hobby. i most enjoy the simple beauty of the coherent beam (watts are great too ;-). i'm curious about your visual impairment and how it may affect your perception of our hobby.

Well I have not been able to test it I mean I can see the beams in videos but with most thingd fo not d o justice. As for my impairment my visual acuity is 20/90 and im in the general color blind range but the limited colors of laser beams makes it easy to tell those colors apart I just dont have a laser to test what I can see and cannot see

I have a buddy who's colorblind, how different is a brown wire compared to a green wire? If you have the same condition as him I can tell you what lasers to bother buying/not bother buying
