Default Is my eye damage repairable?

Hey, I was looking at a mirror and seeing how lasers reflect.

I was amazed to see that if you line up laser dots it shines perfectly in your eye, and I got half a second or less exposure.

After half an hour, there is a blind spot a little up from my focus center (the eye direction doesn't matter, it's always up from focus).

The blind spot is not black, but I can't see anything in that dot.

The laser was 100mW green. I will see a doctor, but can you estimate whether it will heal?

It may get better, but most likely will never heal completely. Sorry

Default Re: Is my eye damage repairable?

Feel for you but from my understanding this is a time issue more than anything else. In other words you are going to have to wait and see (but YES, go see a DR.).
Unfortunately it is VERY easy to damage the eye and glasses aren't really foolproof as reflections can get around the edges and not all glasses are rated the same or correct. Lasers are NOT toys.
I once made the mistake measuring a strong 447nm wearing the wrong glasses but got extremely lucky that I realized the mistake in a 1/2 second and was pointing at my Ophir so not a strong reflection. Saw the big blue spot for about an hour and it went away.

Asking laser enthusiasts their opinions on if your eye will heal is as useful as asking a new born advice on investing money...........

Based upon similar stories, ~ 6 years from now, you might be mostly OK....and progress is typically proportional to the recovery time. (Takes time to heal, and gets better over time...)

Every one's exact time of expose and point of impact, etc, is going to be slightly different, so, there's no real way to tell from here what you did you yourself.

Generally, you don't want to point a laser, or the reflected beam, into your eye...but, when you do, you are essentially doing random laser surgery...and, the effects of that random surgery, are what you are now dealing with.

But stop reading and go to the doctor.

On the way back, get some laser safety goggles.

You need to see a doctor RIGHT AWAY.

The problem is that your body will heal -- however it may come at the expense of your vision because of scarring. Much of what eye doctors do is help the body not repair itself such that scarring occurs.

EXACTLY! See a retina specialist--regualr eye doctor will be of little value.

Crazy stunt ---risking your vision playing with a mirror!
Accidents with lasers happen blindingly fast--no pun intended-- no chance to humanly avoid same.

Good luck.

AGREE! And it's not just scarring. Depending on the severity, the initial damage can be followed within hours by swelling, internal ocular pressure, or hemorrhaging that can cascade and exacerbate the damage or cause other complications. These "secondary" damages and the scarring can be greatly mitigated if diagnosed and treated early.

So by "RIGHT AWAY", I suggest people think in terms of minutes and hours. Don't wait until tomorrow, or give it a few days to "see if it gets better." Immediate treatment may greatly improve the prognosis.

If this is real, and not a troll, I think OP maybe wanted to hear "Oh yeah, we shoot ourselves in the eyes all the time, it is all better the next day".

If this is a legitimate question, go see an optometrist. This is not WebMD.

I am not a troll, I found this forum on google, thus I am new and don't have posts.

went to a doctor, I did thermal damage to the optic nerves. Also, the damage is in the eye center, which accounts for most of the sight. However, even though it is on the macula - it's a small dot. My sight will be a little worse. They also gave me steroids and vitamins that MIGHT help me regrow it.

lesson learned guys!

Good luck with the healing process!

Don't forget to get some laser goggles so this doesn't happen again. If the reflection off of a shiny surface,a switch plate, etc, can bounce a beam into your eyes in a fraction of a second.

As you noticed, it doesn't hurt right away all the time, which tricks some people into thinking the damage didn't occur or was more minor.
