Jeez, ER fees really run up to crazy amounts on the other side of the pond it seems!

Its more worrying however, that despite paying such ridiculous fees, the fail to see the urgency of the problem... I'm sure they would react differently if you walked in there with a screwdriver lodged in your eyeball, which might actually have a lower risk of permanent vision loss

So .. if you get hit in a eye with a high powered laser .. lodge a screwdriver in too, just to make those bloodthirsty ER-ers happy ..

Default Re: Hit in eye with 1000mw 445nm blue laser

interesting story here. I have a similar one, but no laser. I had a car accident in 5/2007, the airbag in my car (2000 Audi A6) did a number on the right side of my face (I dont think any boxer could ever hit as hard as an airbag) instant knock out (i used to sit too far forward). anyways, I was taken by ambulance to a local hospital and they asked me to read the letters on those E FOJ NTKJLF FLKJFLJ chart thingys, and I did with my left eye perfectly and then he told me to cover my left eye and try with my right eye, and there was this big black blob covering the poster, I was shocked instantly, soooooo worried etc etc, it was crazy, then I was vomitting from the concussion etc...
So they sent me to another hospital that specializes in eye stuff and I had to get a vitrectomy to get the blood out (thats the name of the surgery you most likely had too). They later determined that the retina detached a little and that there is scarring. So I have a blind spot in my right eye, near the center of my vision.
So basically now my right eye is useless (my brain doesn't really use it when both eyes are open)... I had no depth perception for a while, couldn't see potholes or bumps while driving, and smooth bumps in sidewalks or streets would mess with my balance when walking. Cant play basketball, tennis, handball or pretty much any sport 1/2 as well anymore, sucks big time.

But over time (its been 5 years already) my brain has somewhat adjusted, even though I dont really use my right eye when both eyes are open, it feels like I do. I feel depth perception a different way now, my brain takes into account the size of the object for depth perception much much more now. Its really strange, but the brain is amazing how it can adjust itself to help you when you have vision problems. Eventually you'll probably forget that you have a blind spot in one eye and, hopefully, we will both be almost as good as new...

must add: the worst part of having bad vision in one eye is:
when checking out women! their a$$es dont look as big and juicy anymore! lol
that really really does suck! seriously!

so to all the guys here, take good care of your eyes, life will never be the same. unless you're gay or something... bleh

Or perhaps a Multioptimal Pupiloptomy - a delicate corneal inversion to correct Walleye vision.

In order to not damage the eye socket, they have to come in through the rectum.

Ain't no man takin that route with me !

It's been bothering me more and more as time goes by. I think the blind spot has actually gotten a slightly larger, though I can't say for sure. My ability to focus in this eye is also hindered. I notice I have to strain a lot harder to bring things into focus than I do with my other eye.

I'm starting to realize just how much this is going to suck as I get older, and that there's no hope for it to get any better, only worse.

I'm really sorry to hear that It really does suck. But, on the bright side, as technology advances, it's likely retinal transplants will be able to occur at some point in the future

Thank you for the update, and sorry to hear that it's getting worse.

Are you getting regular checkups? If you don't already wear glasses, it may be possible that the accident sped up naturally occurring changes, and you may need them.

Unfortunately eyes are nowhere near replaceable at the moment, although, advances are being made. Hopefully in another decade or two, it will be possible to either repair, or replace damaged organs, including the eyes.

Definitely want to echo the concerns of others here. I would REALLY recommend going back in for a follow up with the doctor. Something could be wrong, or they might be able to help...

Nothing appropriate to say, this is just about the worst scenario I've heard of.

Can nothing be done to reduce the impact ?, patch to reduce light ?

Default Re: Hit in eye with 1000mw 445nm blue laser

I have been toying with the use of lasers for controling pests, mainly rabits that are destroying my garden. The slugs out of my pellet gun annoy the critters, but they just keep coming back for more, and I am somewhat concerned with a neighbor calling our local police saying there is a mad man running around with a gun in the city. So I tried using a 5 mw green laser on the rabbit, and after a short while it bothers him (or her?) and it hops away. My idea is either to chase it away, or make it blind so I can walk up to it and club it with the butt of the pellat gun. I see there are 1 and even 2 watt blue lasers, which would probably easily burn out its eye sight. I don't know how humane that would be, but I am also concerned with running about the neighborhood with a 2 watt laser that might be a danger to other humans, nor do I want burning rabbits hopping all over the place. Any thoughts or suggestions on this? Is 2 watt a bit overkill, and maybe a 50 mw might do the trick? Seems to me a laser might be also good for other pests such as mice and rats. Would a laser with a focus on it be better for this use? Roland riemers@wiktel<com

12, 110 body grip traps, trapping, trap mink muskrat, squirrel, rabbit | eBay

You mention you are in the city. You might want to check local laws...

PS if the trap does not make a clean kill, an injured rabbit will scream like crazy.

Default Re: Hit in eye with 1000mw 445nm blue laser

Setting aside problems of legality, and cruelty, it won't work... there is really no pain involved, so at most you will end up having a half blind rabbit come back to your garden next time.

That is assuming your neighbors don't call the cops on you first.... lasers tend to be king of high profile, in some ways more so than guns.
