To the reader who wrote in about eye protection with lasers.
Just to be very clear. Patients’ eyes should ALWAYS be protected when using laser devices. And, patients’ eyes are always protected in our office. We use both external shields and also intraocular (like a contact lens in the eye) depending on the type of laser we are using and where on the body or face we are working.
I have no idea where you got the idea that I was advocating using lasers without eye protection.
