I bought a 5mw pet cat laser at Petsmart and noticed it has a focusing lens. I tried to burn a match by focusing it but it didn’t work. I looked at the spot on the green match head for like 5 seconds and then stopped because it wasn’t working. My eyes felt funny after and I was wondering if I hurt my eyes at all or is it just in my head (I know glass reflects 10% of the lasers light so I’m guessing the reflection percentage was lower on the green match head)

I forgot to mention it was a red laser
