I meant, what if someone accidentally shine Class 1 laser into a baby's  
eyes? Would it hurt retina and leave a permanent damage?

I know ... I know... it should NOT happen. Adults are supposed to be  
very very careful. :)

Knowing nothing, I assume so.  Visible laser safety counts on the blink  
reflex, when the eye is exposed to strong light.  (like the sun)  
I assume babies have this reflex... You could google it.

But you don't have to get *that* powerful before the blink reflex won't  
save your sight any more. I've got some 2.5W violet lasers here that will  
blind someone *instantly* and cause permanent scarring on the retina.  
Mind you, these are about 500x more powerful than the average laser  
pointer.

I think class 1 is less than 1mW in the visible.  
We sell a class 3B laser.. it's in the NIR... no blink reflex.
(I always encourage people to buy extra laser goggles.)
