I am up to going into technicalities tho..
here are some basic laser warnings.
"# Never look directly into the laser beam.
# Never point a laser beam at a person.
# Do not aim the laser at reflective surfaces."


even tho these might not happen, I feel optical mice are perfect, and will not risk putting my eye our for the Laser mice..lol
.000003% of haoppening, but still, I have to be weary of something that can do damage to eyes and skin, even if it is low powered....might radiat the desk..^.^

They have to cover their own asses, so that's why we see all of these warnings.

The laser in a mouse is going to be very low powered compared to the type used for special effects at gigs.

I don't think you will be able to charge up your desk with radiation using a laser.
