HAP!! quit already-- you do not know enough to be handing out this kind of advice!!!^This.
There isn't much you can do right now unfortunately. Honestly, I would get rid of that thing and buy your boyfriend a certified Class IIIa(<5mW) laser which he could use with the cat, and would be completely eye safe.
If you are interested take a look around the forums for some true <5mW 532nm lasers.
let the pros help her PLEASE...
1st no laser is eyesafe - just where did you get that idea??
even a 1 mW laser can be magnified by our eye's own lens 1000 times!!
I have no problems with cats chasing the dot BUT highly do NOT reccommend lasers with some dogs-they can become extremely obsessesive with it and in reality are very unhappy -dispite their owners seeing that otherwise...
IMHO the OP does not really need to go see a Dr. when the injury is very slight they do nothing -- so $$ wasted-
while her eyeglasses may have helped.... that is not something we can figure out--scientifically.
the longest exposure anyone can get under 'normal' circumstance is no more that .25 seconds--did you know that Hap??
go read my LSO thread before passing out info--
her glasses did help IMO in this case..
