Default Ways to look at laser beam with no goggles

Do you need goggles if you are sure there will be no reflections? What if you look at it outside? Is it bad if you look at the beam close up without goggles?

Default Re: Ways to look at laser beam with no goggles

you just need to be careful and take some extra steps.

i can bet most people on here dont walk around shinning their lasers outside or at a festival or concert etc. with goggles on.

outdoors there are far less chances of reflections when pointing at far away places.

goggles will be worn much more when playing onside with mirrors and doing effect with the lasers. then once your sure the reflection will not hit your eyes you can take off the goggles and enjoy.


my eyes get irritated just by looking at some of my lasers dots for long periods of times or soemtimes even quick moments.

also goggles are worn hopefully whenever someone is working on a laser projector which involves very fine adjustments of mirrors and chances of reflections are FAR higher.

you just need to use common sense and if you think there is a slight chance dont take it!

I was wondering this as well. I've got a 5mw green from DX and have just ordered a 200mw Red for seeing how it burns.

Should you always wear googles with the 200mw when using inside? What about outside?

Scary that some of the 5mw greens are actually higher. How about those inside a house, again, should you always wear eye protection?

You do not need goggles to look at the BEAM. You DO need goggles for when burning and looking at the focused point for longer than a moment.
