You mean to have a laser procedure done on your face? No, it isn't harmful, and your eyes are protected by little goggles.

No - I think that he/she is referring to office equipment. I don't know the answer to it - I would not put my eyes right up to the light which I know escapes from the lid of the machine.

LOL- oh sorry!! I got confused, this is a skincare forum, right? had no idea they would be referring to office equipment.

DUH!!!! It isn't safe to use a scanner-and especially with your eyes open!!

Well first off, let me just say I am a total worry wart! Like more than you can ever imagine. Probably explains my lack of sleep at night. I preach 24/7 to both sons about drinking and driving and everything else I can think of that is of great danger.

So my son who is away at college calls me late in the day today as I am driving home. He starts the convo in a very mono tone voice. The kind he will usually have when he needs something or has something on his mind. So, I said is everything ok? He said yes, just studying for a mid-term. I said I thought you had your last mid-term early this morning???? Then he is really quiet. I said son, are you sure your ok? He said, well actually I'm not. He tells me he was arrested last night and was taken to jail for being drunk in public. (he turned 21 in Jan) Well.....needless to say I BLEW my top!!! All the way to the point of crying!! I called him every name in the book!! He could not get a word in at all.

As I am screaming at him, I noticed a police with his lights on behind me. Well......not only was I yelling, but I was speeding too. So, I hung up my cell phone, on my son. Took care of buisness with the officer. My son kept calling and calling, I finally answered, just so he could tell me, mom listen to me for just a second I will explain. Then he said April fools!!! And I hung up on him again! I am still so mad he would even play that kind of joke on me, knowing I don't handle things well.

Do you think I am overreacting? Be honest. I can handle it.
