Hey, as you read the title i accidentaly shined a 303 5mw laser directly into the eye. The laser was bought from China and if i close one of my eyes i can see a grey spot in there. It has been there for the past 5 minutes and i wanted to ask if i have a permanent eye damage? When it first hit the eye i felt warmness in the eye and most of the area was black but now i see a grey spot in the middle. Tbh i wasn't that careful with it because i have a 5000mw blue laser so i thought that 5mw laser can't much harm, but i was wrong. When i look at straight lines with one of my eye they start to bend when they are close to the grey spot. Should i see a specialist?

No one here can give you medical advice, but those Chinese 303 lasers are often up to 80 mW in optical power. I would see an ophthalmologist asap. There are things that can be done to keep your vision from becoming worse if there is real damage.

Common sense --go see an eye doctor --an MD Ophthalmologist ASAP. Nobody here can evaluate any possible eye damage.



>>>Warning<<<

"If you think you need medical help or attention for an eye injury or any other medical problem, you probably do."
"If you have been hit in the eye with a laser and feel you have suffered any type of eye injury as the result of an accident with a laser that may need medical opinion or treatment,go to a hospital Emergency Room and/or consult a qualified Board Certified MD Ophthalmologist ASAP.
