Anyone here tried this?

I bought a $10 green laser flashlight off ebay and it is wayy more powerful than I expected, and that's just the light I can see. I wonder how much it leaks in 808 or 1064nm? Anyway, I'm wondering if anyone make small IR blocking filters to slip in front of the lens just for safety's sake. My glasses won't block any IR.

I've seen some large round filters like 20mm but nothing smaller. Thanks.

Whoops... I just now found some on Amazon. A dinky little lens is almost as much as the entire laser was but maybe I'll find some cheaper ones. :confused:
