If you are worried ; go see an Eye-doctor/opthamologist.

Even If you think you are "OK" ; still go get It checked out asap.
Once you hear what they say ; you won't worry-as much.

Don't take chances. If it was a full on blast to the eye go get it checked out!

I would go check it anyway. Sometimes the brain makes it so hard for u to see the damage because it tries to cover the spots so you think you're seeing normal.

What happens from the several threads I have read is, the cells in your eye swell up and over the course of a few days the preasure built up crushes the surrounding cells. If you not going to the doc to get steroids, then atleast eat some motrin or ib profen, if you are able to. They are a NSAID and will releave the inflamation some. If the clot gets larger then you need to go and they use a needle to draw out some of the blood. Drink water and keep an eye on your eye for the next few days :p Maybe a senior member can remember what the vitamin is that is also perscribed... I think you can find it at the store.

Unless that family member is an ophthalmologist or at least has has "MD" after their name, their observation may be worth as much as a $3 bill...

I hear ya, I was saying if he was not going to see a doc...

@Matrix, this was a 31mw pointer... Read: Damaged eyes?

Remember, "You only need one good eye to enjoy lasers as a hobby" ;)
