get it checked out! don't take this lightly. eye damage isn't instantly apparent a lot of the time. if you really were hit in the eye even with a fraction of the power, it is still enough to cause SERIOUS damage. if the diode was above lasing threshold, it is well beyond the limit to cause permanent damage.

i’ll get it checked out , what goggles do you recommend
laserglow is the cheapest source that is guaranteed to protect you. honestly thought, you already damaged your eyes. you should just start with something lower powered so you don't go blind in both eyes or harm someone else. you should be treating that thing like a loaded gun... but if you absolutely must play with it, get the OD7+ 190-532nm goggles from laserglow.

Dude did you end up getting the 7W striker?

well I use them and I've heard lots of positive/negative opinions lately so idk what to think. Do you have any reasoning?
i ordered eagle pair glasses for 190-540+800-1700nm OD5 and it doesn't block 532 properly. eagle pair glasses aren't to good

Are they the same colour as these? https://www.laserlands.net/protection/16011009.html

I think laserlands/eagle pair share a lot of the same stock. I purchased a set of the goggles in the link above after having a good experience with their dedicated 190-540nm goggles. Unfortunately they are complete garbage. As soon as the laser hits threshold power I can feel the diffuse light hit my eyes.
