Accidently lased my eye

  1. Jan 7, 2012 #1
    Could be over reacting here but since I know nothing of lasers:
    I lased my eye accidently with a laser level, http://www.homedepot.com/buy/tools-hardware/hand-tools/strait-line/laser-level-114624.html, it is a CLASS 111A labled with a DANGER label.

    I stuck it to wall and when I pulled it off the laser glanced my eye. Probably < 1/2 sec but do have a very mild eye-ache.

    From what I read it takes more time for this class, but I was surprised by such a short glance it affected my eye. No red spot or visual signs.

    Thanks for your time,

    Please see a doctor. We can not give you advice.

    I hope that all is ok.
