Hi,

I have a chinese handhled laser pointer that reads <5mW of power.

It is run by 3 small button cells.


I was shining it through the house and it reflected of a door and into my eye. The door is not made of glass, but a reflective gloss.

My question is, can it cause any damage?

From what I read on the web 3a lasers can't cause damage unless kept at eye for long time ,but the real problem is that knowing the chinese it might not be 5mW, so any feedback if anyone has tested these with a meter would be helpful.

Here is a photo identical to the laser.
