Default I hurt my eye working with a DVD burner LD.

I think I just suffered my first laser eye injury. I was trying to extract the laser diode from the little module, and my screwdriver launched a tiny lens up, and it hit my eye. It hurt, but it is fine. However, now I understand why everyone suggests wearing safety goggles.

Yes, I do. And I do wear proper safety goggles when actually using lasers. I just found the incident funny, so I thought I'd share.

I have a pair of military grade laser goggles, balistics-rated! (though Senkat's tests showed they were not very good for lasers --- I do still have 1 clear pair of balistics goggles, and 2 bronze 100% UV sunglasses that are baliastics rated!)

An impact is nothing to laugh at, I had one of those years ago and had to have medication for it because it scratched my eye! Your eyes are no joking matter!

I also own a set of the military grade goggles. Mine were issued, however. The nature of their use dictates they are not very good at doing any one thing, but the best thing you can have when you need to do everything. These goggles are the jacks of all trades protecting from sun, sand, and laser light at wavelengths often used by the U.S. Military. They are certainly not designed to withstand a direct exposure so try not to stand in front of that laser designator. Basically, like most things in the military they are designed to allow a soldier to complete the mission. Protection and safety are secondary in many cases to the mission and provided at the highest level that does not impact the mission. Keep these thoughts when using them for home use.

Impact protection is probably a good idea when you're doing any sort of mechanical work... though most people don't seem to care that much. Even the simplest pair of glasses will offer a lot of protection though. I used to work in chemistry where goggles against chemical spats or exploding glass labware were mandatory, but wearing your own 'normal' glasses was also accepted.

That said, i guess we should recommend goggles for soldering work as well.. getting a spat of molten tin in your eye is very painful... never happened to me, but i've seen it happen, and the treatment involves scooping the blob of lead out at the hospital.
