I am new to lasers but i am convinced they could be used to great effect for self defence purposes. Although causing some eye damage to a potential attacker is justified imo i would rather cause a dazzling effect with disorientation only. I am looking to hear your thoughts and experiences with lasers for this purpose. My research is leading me towards a green laser (best interaction with human eye to my understanding) and i am leaning towards a power of 30-100 mw. I would also be looking for a laser where beam can be broadened to increase surface area for ease of hitting eyes of attacker (alternatively perhaps an attachment would work just as well....like a star pattern attachment? Has anyone accidently taken a laser to the eye or know anyone that has so that they describe the effect and viability of using a laser for self defence purposes? I read that the GLARE dazzlers are being used by law enforcement in the US now so there must be something to this. I read they use 200 mw green. Many thanks in advanced.
