In brief: Not very

Led lights can be dazzling but are not laser.
They do not provide a concentrated, focal light but a more diffuse light which the eye can easily handle. It is not comfortable to stare at an led light but not harmful. This of course is not the case with laser light which carries the usual cautions.
