What About the Red Ones?

The Cavs Lebron James gettin' red lasered on the foul line a couple of days ago, led me to check on it to see how much actual danger to the eye this could cause.

Mayo Clinic - Green Laser Pointer Can Cause Eye Damage

Hhhmmm... I'll likely search a little more, cuz I don't think the red one's can cause direct damage in an instant. The Mayo Clinic says the damage occurs after 60 seconds of exposure with the green laser.

Still, pilots and shooters alike have other things going on whilst gettin' lasered and the disturbance of that li'l red dot could certainly cause them to lose focus and face some otherwise more mundane and unlikely danger.
