More and more, you are seeing small fiber laser engravers and diode engravers. I have a 50w fiber laser coming.Sorry for the thread necromancy but this thread appears in Google results and I thought adding information would be useful for people reading it in the future.
Just want to add that this is talking about lasers so powerful that they blow up your retina and cause pieces of it to fly around your eye. It's not damage to the fibers in the vitreous itself. Lasers in home appliance are probably not powerful enough to do this. The incident report you linked is using a YAG laser, these are lasers powerful enough to blow things up and they are used in various surgeries, so again, these are not lasers for use in home appliances and such.
