I know it's about the iphone but asking about the health risk to eyes instead of the phone itself. So I didn't put it in the cell phone/tech section of forums.

the face id seems to work by projecting a laser to scan the face. Is this safe? any optometrist here?

I know the scanning technology is used already, but with how often we use phones, and to be scanned every time? I'm not sure about that.

If there are they cannot give you any medical advice.
Seek the opinion of your regular optometrist.

no, I'm not seeking advice for myself. I'm wondering in general, is it safe to be shining a light (not sure what to call it) into your eyes so often

no more than the advice that is given to tell pregnant women not to get drunk during pregnancy

is there an exposure risk to this type of technology, would an optometrist know since they do a similar scan for eyes to determine the cones/rods, figured they would know a bit more about facial scans than me
