lasers are a bad idea for other users, could trigger epileptic fits, ive gotta be very careful when using surveying equipment with 3 of my learners, imagine a driver being triggered !!!
Why would a Laser cause an epileptic fit?
Unless it is being pulsed or you are creating a specific pattern. Would be no different to the LED flashing or a pattern it creates?
the lasers can trigger fits if the person is photo sensitive, the green ones are not as harmful as red ones in some cases
Photo-sensitivity for epilepsy is triggered by flashing/flickering, not
the fact it is a laser. Any light would do if it's pulsing at the correct frequency e.g. a flashing red rear bike light if flashing to fast. Generally around 20Hz iirc but can range from 6 to 60Hz,
Each person is specific and it will be specific frequencies. Your devices should tell you their working frequencies if they are pulsing.
Side/ Green lasers in general (not related to this) are more damaging to the eyes as the eyes are more sensitive to green. It also make a different part of it explode
. Green is also generated in a different way to red lasers.
My background in in Lasers... making, engineering and more importantly using them to blast things.
