It would depend on how much of the light was actually reflected back into your eyes. If you think that you might have a problem, go the the eye Dr. No one here can help you with such a potential problem. The longer you wait, the more chance that there will be nothing that the Dr. can do.

Peace,

The lens in your eye will focus the light onto a small patch of retina.
I guess you will get bits of retina and blood floating around in your eyeball, there will likely be some sensation from the steam generated as well.

I expect you will have permanent damages in a few milliseconds.

Sticking a nail in your eye will be much cheaper than getting a laser.


ETA: you mean at the wall, not into the laser?

I think the OP means watching it burn things. Not staring into the beam. I think if he was in the beam of a 2w laser the charred flesh would be a good indicator and he wouldn't be asking here.

The answer is.. it depends on how much of the light was getting reflected back at you, which is hard to tell since you can't see 980.
