Default Laser Blinding

I was wondering how powerful a laser had to be to be able to blind an eye permanently?
Also how much would the pain be?

I'm /NOT/ thinking of blinding someone or myself, I'm just curious.

Default Re: Laser Blinding

The amount of laser power that can damage your eyes is explained in the OSHA Technical Manual on laser hazards. The answer is very complex. A more detailed explanation is presented in an article on Laser Safety in Laser Focus World. Standards have been established by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for classifying lasers in incremental ranges of power output as it relates to safety.
