= Damage to eyes and skin = The laser beam can instantly and permanently blind you. It can also burn your skin. * The lid's window will block the infrared laser beam, but it doesn't block the visible light produced by the burn. '''The visible light can be bright enough to damage your retine! Do not stare directly at the cut!''' Use your peripheral vision. * You don't ever want any part of your body in contact with the beam. * As long as the door is closed, you're safe to look at the laser. There are interlocks on the door that help ensure the laser never operates with the doors open. Don't disable them.
