Ophthalmologist warns: Laserpenne can make people blind

It is far from the first time, to be warned against the popular laserpenne. Back in 2014 warned Øjenforeningen against laserpenne and wrote among other things:

The result is that nethindens yellow spot, so to speak, being burned by a fraction of a second.'

And we turn the clock back to 2011, a man was sentenced to 14 days imprisonment for want of a laserpen against a helicopter.
