Well, I'm not a doctor, but I have stuck my face to a bar-code scanner before, and I can still see just fine. It's not something you should do on a regular basis, just like you shouldn't stare at the sun, but I am sure your eyes will be fine.

What if an employee jokingly place the scanner towards my eye and days after the eye which the light impacted starts to hurt. What would be the problem. This happened two years ago and I have been suffering pain in my eye to this day. Can u explain?
