In brief: There is a risk

Laser pointers can cause damage to the retina.
Although certain wavelengths of light are worse, it is best to assume that any direct "hit" from the laser can cause significant and possibly permanent vision loss.

In brief: Not necessarily

Just don't do this.
One could have damage to the eyes with laser pointing.
