I think laser is IR, on the other end of the spectrum.
It would probably take quite a bit of UV to damage your eyes. More than the amount from the sun that causes skin cancer or the UV lights doctors use to check your eyes. I use one to find SMD parts or other tiny things I drop in the carpet.
I took 2 pics here. One is 36,000 mcd red and the other is 46,000 mcd white. Guess which is which.
