Paper Abstract

As research and the application of lasers by the various professional bodies continues growing, one question on this issue still remains unanswered: to what extent are the harmful effects of low power laser light detrimental to the human eye? This paper analyzes the result of permanent impairment to the eyes of those who have worked with laser for a long time; advances an argument that harmful effects, resulting from low power lasers, can be both accumulative and irreversible. This argument is supported and verified by clinical comparison. In view of the evidence, it is recommended that physical protections be provided with particular attention to those who are working with lasers and methods for adoption are also put forward by the researchers engaged in this paper.
