Default Just to make sure...

I've been reading some threads regarding these issues but just as a last step I want to ask you all if these are true or not.

You CANNOT look at the dot of the laser with OR without goggles except by far distances WITH goggles.

You CAN look at the beam but only outside at the sky (obviously with no aircraft's around).

You CANNOT look at the beam indoors or at least not suggested to as looking at the beam means you are removing your safety glasses while indoors and there can be many incidents that can occur which can critically damage you.

Each state has more rules/regulations towards high powered lasers than others, and there's always a risk that authorities may come concerning you and your laser.

1) That depends on the output power of the Laser and at WHAT
distance.

2) Yes you can as long as you don't shine your Laser at any shiny
or reflective surface.

3) YES you should not use High Powered Lasers indoors without
appropriate Laser Safety Goggles/Glasses.


All your questions could have been easily answered on your
own by doing a little research and reading on the Forum...

Oh yeah I did search the forums, its just there were mixed answers for some of them so I was just making sure

EDIT: Oh 1 question though, has anyone else feel like their eyes are sore right after a quick look at the beam not the dot of the laser then instantly going to a computer screen?

One thing I see wrong there. If you have proper goggles on there is no reason you can't look at the dot.

Really? I thought I read somewhere where it really does depend on distance like what bee said up top, even with goggles on; the dot of the laser is still strong enough for severe eye damage.

Target dot - yes, safe to look at, dangerous only in close distance. Especially don't look at the target dot beaming to white surfaces as they are the most reflective. All depends on laser power.
