Hello, I was at a salon for hair removal and they were using an ipl machine. I was wearing the provided googles and sitting up. The person administering the treatment accidentally discharged the machine. I wasn’t looking directly at the unit at the time and the unit delivering the light was about an arms length from me. I am curious if there is any risk of eye damage at all.
