Do they shine those bright light to your eyes? When I get mine done with a Indirect ophalscopy (spelling?), it was bright and it causes me to have after images, I was afraid those would damage my eyes too.

That ströng bright light which drs projected on eyes does not damage the eyes.I asked from my dr and she said some cells can be effected but that will be recovered soon.
