^^^^^THAT is exactly what I was referring to. I just opted to omit the super-scary details. Though now that I think about it, we probably should include ALL the horrible details when discussing the need for caution.

...scary stuff for sure.

I'm really hoping this was either a troll, or the laser in question LEDed, and the output was nowhere near class 4.

@Ash & Trevor - the burning sensation is usually from the person in question rubbing their eyes a lot afterwards, not from the laser itself.

question, why would you get a 1.5W laser if you are unaware of what it can do? Surely you saw some video's of it burning stuff and said COOL I WANT THAT. Now if it can burn wood why wouldn't it burn your eye? Darwin award for this one or just a troll (hopefully the second one)

Well I am back from the ER I went to last night, and I dont think I can go to a specialist because I have the worst possible insurance but all they really did was some normal eye tests and they say nothing is there and I am fine. My eyes must have burning in my head because it stopped when I stopped worrying about my eyes and calmed down. I still dont feel like anything is wrong but what should I do now should I still be concerned? They were not specialist but it look like they did a good eye examination.

Yes but I thought the laser was not sensitive to the eye and it would reflect off the eye because it is partly white and in general a very unique thing to the rest of the body.

The burning you feel is probably psychological, my eyes are bugging me from reading this and thinking about it. however i am not saying you did not do damage, se the specialist right away

Default Re: 1.5w blue rifle laser to eye. Lazerer

i was thinking the same thing as post #19 after I posted last night.

When I was a noob, before I joined this forum, I thought I could get away with not having glasses for my spartan 1W. After getting it and doing just a little burning I realized I couldn't even look at the dot up close without protection, so I got some. Even then though, I knew not to look directly into the beam, and that doing so would cause massive trauma

Well everyone KNOWS you cannot look directly into the beam. Some guys did look anyway. Even if they knew. Even if the did not want to. Things like that just happen. It's called an accident. And that's why you wear goggles. Or you should, at least.

I would of thought your blink reflex would of kicked in before 2 seconds ??
Something doesn't seem right here, If it can pop balloons, light matches with ease
it should of done some damage !!! I'm glad it didn't tho
