Default Guys just got a 1W 445nm in my eye please help!

Hi guys im really worries about my left eye right now. I was playing around with my laser and trying to make a laser safety goggles the laser baisiccally slipped out and got into my eye. Right now i dont exactly see a black dot but a small grey streak to the right of the focus of my eye...


example dsdsddsd

when i look at the lette p in axample i cant read the dsdsddsd letters.
What should i do im really stressed right now and i dont know where eye specialists are and the closest hospital is about 30minutes away from where i live. This has happened about 20minutes ago. :'(

Hi guys I haven't updated this [as quickly as i should have] because I live out in the country and the wireless internet service is really bad.

So I went to the ER because all the optometrists in the london area have closed and I waited there for 8 hours (something got confused so the wait probably would have been about a 1 hour). Then a doctor who used to be an optometrist did some visual tests on me and set an appointment for me on the next day with a real optometrist (keep in mind this is 3am in the morning so all the optometrists in the hospital have left).

The next day I arrive to St. josephs hospital and after some eye tests they tell me that I got a "good burn" and they could see a little bit of fluid leackage. They say that I'm lucky I did not get the laser into my central vision and that they will do more tests to determine how deep the burn is and more stuff about it.

As for my vision, its still 20/20 and the small burn is just a small grey streak a bit to the right of my left eye's central vision which I barely notice


Yes I had safety goggles on (home-made goggles)

Hi guys i have three tests today and I'll try update ASAP
--------------------------------
04-20-2015, 07:37 PM

Aright guys, I had three tests taken on 04-15-2015 (posted above).

Was a very fast group of tests which all took a total of 1h 20min appx.

First I was given a "Field test". In this test i put my head into a machine with a white egg shaped top with a part of it chopped off ... egg> () machine> |)
Anyway, I put my chin on a small shelf thing and look into the hollowness of the half egg machine. Everything is white except for a red laser peeking through one of the 6 small holes and one hole relatively larger which has an optic fibre put through it. First I am told to look in between the four dots and click a button (i'm holding a remote with a button) when ever I see a orange dot flash in between (there must be orange LED's behind white plastic). It starts out bright and as it flashes it gets smaller and smaller. Then when that semi-activity was done I was told to look at the optic fibre at the very top for about 10 to 15 seconds and not blink or move at all because a small laser was analysing my eye (I'm assuming the laser is class 2 and this analysis was not analysis the inside of my eye). Then when that semi-activity was done I was told to stare at the optic fibre and click whenever I saw a orange flash anywhere within my field of view (you guessed it this is the field of view test). This took about 10 minutes and it was done for both eyes separately.

Then the lady told put pupil dilation stuff in my eye and put me in the room where people were waiting for their pupils to dilate (if a bright eye shines on a pupil dilated by the chemicals it will not contract as it should).

20-30 minutes later...

I am actually totally blanking on the second test right now this happened about a week ago. When I get my test results it should jog my memory and I will update

The third test...
Edit(this test is called OCT scan, it determines the deepness of my burn)
The most exciting test. The man whom might either be a doctor or a technician
shows me into a room with a machine about the size of 1.75m off the ground and 0.4m wide. This machine is a camera with tons of LLLLLLLLLLAAAAAASSSSSSSSSEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRSSSSSSSSS SSSSS. I asked about it and the dude told me it was made in Japan so apparently it has to be really good (what a funny guy) then I was supposed to put my chin on another small shelf thing attached to the camera and take pictures of each eye. What happens is when I look into the camera... it looks back at me :O *mind blown* just kidding, although that's basically what happens, there's is an image of a big green X made up of small dots and red lines of lasers scamming along the x-axis and the y-axis. The guy tells me to look at the x at the centre while he takes a picture and then far off at the edge of my to take a picture of my optic nerve. This processes was done 2 times for each eye because the first time we took pictures of my eyes he did not use the red lasers. Then when ever he took a picture of my eyes, an incandescent light would flash very brightly (actually now that I think of it it actually might have been a xenon high energy discharge lamp) and this gave me freaking blow to the mind every time cause my pupils were dilated ALOT. This gave me a headache

Well that's all there is so far. Next I will meet up with an actually eye specialist dude in my local area on the 27th. One thing which does worries me is that i'm only gonna finally see someone who will tell me what is happening in my eye two weeks after I injured it, because...

lazerman121 says
"took me 3 weeks to see one by then there was nothing they could do."

soooo, im worried two weeks has been too long and by the time the docs diagnoses my condition it will be too late to fix anything. :'(

@mortuus btw mortuus I think those home made goggles actually saved my eyes from having a black spot because the laser was extremely close to my face and pretty well focused. I honestly think that god has saved my eyes from bring burned to a crisp cuase... the laser was close... 1W... extremely strong wavelength... and focused to close range... god definitely had a part in this.

1. Don't panic. What happened, happened, now it needs to be dealt with.

2. You need to consult with an ophthalmologist as soon as possible.

Call the hospital, ask them if they have one on call.

Explain that you retina has been burned by a high powered laser. If they don't have an ophthalmologist on call, ask for any they can recommend.

You do need to get to an eye doctor ASAP, but it needs to be an ophthalmologist not an optometrist.

There's a chance it maybe still get better. Before I first got into the hobby in 2010 I was hit by a 30-50 mw green that had one of those thin beams. A wire was loose and all i saw was what i thought to be a red low bat indicator inside ( It really was 808nm but I had no idea at the time.)

anyway next thing I know is I move it and bam a needle thin green beam hits my eye.

I was like shit 2/3rds of my vision where gone. I figured not much could be done and I raced downstairs and downed like 6 advil. This may have saved my vision by reducing inflammation as I got a headache afterwords for days but my vision came back. as all I got today is a tiny hard to tell spot and it's on my eye that has 20/25 vision and not my good one as I have an astigmatism.

You seem to have gotten VERY lucky if you still have 20/20 vision after a hit from a 1 watt laser. After my 50 mw wake up call I now wear 2 googles when working with a 3W 445. I can't even see the dot with both of them on(except when it makes florescence) and that's the way I'd like to keep it.

Sounds like you didn't get off scot free but did get very lucky in terms of the damage done.

While it's very good that you were wearing goggles, and that's probably why you're more or less OK, please get yourself a pair of proper ones, or at least the Uvex (link in my signature).

If you can, please keep us posted on progress, hopefully with regaining full vision.

you lucked out with that much power.
I got popped in the eye with 20mW of scattered light and have a blind spot in my eye top left of center. Unfortunately for me there was no ER in my area with an eye doctor and took me 3 weeks to see one by then there was nothing they could do.

Hi there!

Sorry to hear about your accident that's awful, it should serve as a reminder to us all even the laser vets that things happen and it only takes a fraction of a second with a lot of the higher power lasers we utilize while enjoying our hobby.

Not trying to preach but this made me stop and think of how complacent one can get after handling these things for a long time.

I hope your vision gets better....PM me your address, I don't care where in the world you are I will send you 2 pairs of glasses tomorrow. No worries of payment for them or the shipping, you need glasses bud and I have extras!

-Joe

anyway next thing I know is I move it and bam a needle thin green beam hits my eye.

I was like shit 2/3rds of my vision where gone. I figured not much could be done and I raced downstairs and downed like 6 advil. This may have saved my vision by reducing inflammation as I got a headache afterwords for days but my vision came back. as all I got today is a tiny hard to tell spot and it's on my eye that has 20/25 vision and not my good one as I have an astigmatism.

You seem to have gotten VERY lucky if you still have 20/20 vision after a hit from a 1 watt laser. After my 50 mw wake up call I now wear 2 googles when working with a 3W 445. I can't even see the dot with both of them on(except when it makes florescence) and that's the way I'd like to keep it.
