Laser Strikes...A Pain In My Eye!


LaserArmor_PBG_34.jpgIn this issue we continue to focus on the increasing number of laser incidents in the air. According to the FAA there has been a 13 times increase in the number of “reported” laser incidents from 2006-2012.


Featured Content: What to do if you encounter a Laser Strike




The following steps should be adhered to when you experience a laser threat:

  • Try to get in the habit of using your peripheral vision first when determining the likelihood of the light source being a laser.
  • NEVER fixate or stare at the light.
  • Report the incident time and location and any other pertinent information to the nearest controlling Air Traffic Controller so they can inform other nearby aircraft.
  • First and foremost, immediately look away from the source and alert the crew so they are not exposed.
  • If necessary, land as soon as you can.
  • If your vision is limited from a direct or indirect strike, turn the flight controls over to the other pilot, if conditions permit.
  • If you have been exposed and feel the effects, it is very important NOT to rub your eyes.
  • Once you have safely landed, immediately go to the emergency room for treatment. Note: Some eye problems may not present itself until later on.
  • Eye exams should include an ocular history review, distance visual acuity, color vision, amsler grid, slit lamp exam, and dilated retinal scans.
  • Finally, ensure the laser incident is reported. The FAA has a dedicated portion of their website to report a laser incident.
