The lights sold by Higher Orbit Products LLC are not toys. They are scientific, state-of-the-art lighting devices that greatly exceed the typical performance of other similar-looking flashlights. As such, a comprehensive understanding of the possible dangers to human eyesight from prolonged exposure to intense ultraviolet radiation is essential before use.
Though they are in no way as immediately dangerous as even a small, low-power laser pointer, it is for that exact reason the risks must be understood. When your eyes detect bright light such as from a laser or the Sun, there is an autonomic reaction that constricts your pupils. Also, you would tend to turn away from the light source and/or close your eyes. But the vast majority of the emission from the Hoplite is invisible to humans. As a result, humans cannot detect the intense ultraviolet light. Our pupils do not constrict, we do not turn away, and we do not close our eyes, so temporary or permanent eye damage is possible.
So...please...read the big red warnings below before you buy. Hoplites can make the world safer by detecting flaws in industrial products, but we don't want you to give up your eyesight in the name of safety!
