Aye-Eye-Aye! Are Iris Scanners Going to Damage my Eyes?

Posted by Ross Logan on May 2, 2017 10:00:00 AM

Remember when laser pointers were cool? I remember when I got my first laser pointer in the early 90’s, my parents were scared to death. They drilled into me over and over how dangerous laser pointers could be if I ever pointed it in my eye. Today the Internet largely agrees - lasers and your eye sight don’t mesh well together.

So when I was asked to try out our latest iris scanners in our office, I was hesitant. Don’t iris scanners use the same lasers to scan my eye? Aren’t they dangerous?

It turns out my fears and assumptions couldn’t be further from the truth. Today’s modern iris scanners use LED Infrared (IR) sensors to scan your eye, and for less than a second of time at most. And these iris scanners are rigorously tested too, to make sure they aren’t emitting more IR or LED light than they should.

For those of you who, like me, were skeptic about the safety of iris scanners, check out this article explaining the safety requirements of all modern iris scanners:
