Default New to lasers, need help with correct eye protection

Hi all, My names Rhys and i am new to the forum. I have just purchased the 1.4mw s3 arctic from wicked lasers.... after viewing this forum im not sure if i should have now.

anyway too late now, im just abit stuck with what eye protection i should be buying? i am a complete noob so you will have to bare with me. I have looked around but kinda confused on which is the best protection for this laser.

any recommendations?

also i see alot of old 'hate' against wicked lasers... how have their customer service/products improved over the years? i just want to know if i've wasted $575 or if ill be waiting for 6 months for it.... i live in the uk

cheers

If you are able to I would cancel your order ASAP.
Please introduce yourself in the "Welcome" thread we would like to get to know you. You can purchase a much better one at a better price from members here on LPF.

i hope its not a 1.4 milliwatt laser that costs $575

if possible you should cancel it and buy a laser from a member on here, it will cost you much less and the quality, customer service and power is ten times better if not more, but if you can't cancel it just know that the goggles that come with it are terrible (from what i've heard) so regardless of what laser you end up with i'd get these

good luck and stay safe

Hi Rhyse,

Just a note mate, you may find customs don't look kindly on a 1.4W laser pointer. Possessing it is fine, importing it isn't worst case scenario, they will crush it, best case, they won't notice it.

best wishes

Dave
