Hmm, so going a little off topic, any of you guys ever get your eyes checked for laser damage specifically?

Congrats!

Stupidest thing I ever did with lasers was glance into a green laser that wend IR on me after falling. Hopefully no damage... at least nothing I've noticed in the 1-2 months since, and I didn't notice anything immediately after.

Was also hit in the eye from 4-5 feet by a drunk idiot friend who was playing around with a 30-50mW greenie... Saw a spot for a few minutes, but that was it.

Laser safety just isn't something that's really known by people in general public.

Might wanna get that checked out.

I saw the eye doctor about a month ago, eyes are the same as they always been, crap since video games came to me.

But no holes on me eyes.

Yeah, I think the amount of time I've spent reading in poor lighting and the amount of time I spent in front of the computer probably did A LOT more damage to date than lasers.

I was wearing glasses at the time, that do reduce light coming through by 10% and reflect a little as well, so hopefully that helped. Hit was also at an angle.

Wouldn't surprise me to learn that I have a some damage though.... did every single at home test you can imagine, aside from the natural blind spot I wasn't able to detect any others.

Hopefully next time a laser beam goes near my eye it's for lasik :)
