Hey guys,

Made my first post today about some safety/health and got some comforting/helpful responses from users already. I realize this is not a place to receive medical advice but in conjunction with the medical advice I already received from a doctor, these posts put my mind to rest (seriously was having panic attacks multiple times a thinking the ophthalmologist didn't know anything about scattered laser light).

I'm new to lasers and am building out a lighting rig for events I produce. Very interested in using lasers in my designs and will be using this forum for consulting on safety/build guidance.

Firstly, I will be curing my paranoia/anxiety before I touch another laser. Then will be investing in the proper safety equipment and beam traps. Then, I plan on getting into some serious laser designs.

I look forward to your help, I love looking at the projects you're all working on.

Welcome to LPF,

as Bowite mentioned.
Rep+ for a nice intro and let it make you remember this lesson. Do not overworry however. :) Get checked as proposed. For your own calm in mind... :)

Thanks! Already was checked once the day after I tried it out, I just have some serious anxiety issues I'm currently working through which really compounded the problem. Have another ophthalmologist appt. made for next week.
