Not advisable : Looking into any light for an extended period of time can damage the macula, the center part of the retina, the light sensitive tissue that lines the back of the eye & gives sight. Projector clocks use led or filament light sources, which do not have the same severe damaging potential as a laser. Prolonged staring into any light source can damage the macula. Check with the manufacturer. ...Read more
Postal worker shined the red light laser scanner in my eye from 2 feet away. Looked at it for a few seconds. Any permanent damage to eyes or vision?
See your eye doctor: If the red light was a laser pointer and you stared at it for milliseconds, you might be okay if it was properly labeled in 3-5 mW, it's the nonlabeled ones (green lasers) that are problematic, but this may be a good time for you to visit your eye doctor anyway to have your annual dilated exam done too, and have them check.

What's the difference between viral conjunctivitis and keratitis? I'm afraid I have keratitis. My eye is red, light sensitive, teary and blurry
Inflammation: Conjunctivitis is inflammation of the conjunctiva (covering on the white part of the eye). Keratitis is inflammation of the cornea (clear layer in front of the iris). Both can be caused by viruses and both can be present at the same time. The light sensitivity and blurred vision could be caused by keratitis. Anytime you have blurred vision you should see your eye doctor immediately. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
