• Can a newer model flashlight harm your eyes?


    Question:

    Can a flashlight harm your eyes? I see your previous answer but it’s likely now incorrect, as newer flashlights are much brighter than they were in 2013.


    Answer:

    While flashlights are much brighter than they used to be, and laser pointers have been reported to cause retinal damage, flashlights are unlikely to cause damage because the light is not as tightly focused as with a laser. It is very unlikely that a flashlight can harm your eyes.
