I've just a cursory reading from the Google search on "LED Eye Damage" and what I'm seeing is that it's not the light per-se that causes issues but HOW that light is hitting the eye. A concentrated beam close up to an LED can cause damage. A diffuse beam...not so much.

Now I ruminate: Light is light is light is light. A photon popping out of an LED lamp with a wavelength of 600 nm is going to be the same as one popping out of the sun at the same wavelength. If an eye is hit by a tight beam, is close to the lamp... doesn't matter WHAT that beam came from.

Of course you are right Gary. Mom always said, "Don't look directly into the sun". Too many energetic photons can hurt, especially when packed into a photon torpedo. Always avoid those and keep your shields up.

Live long and prosper.

Love my LED's, John
