No, this wavelength is in the near infrared, and is not hazardous to your vision.

The fact that it is in the near infrared does not mean that it is hazardous to your vision. I do not know if this 848nm is dangerous but certain infrared lasers like the type found in CD players are harmful to your eyes.

Lasers are generally harmless devices... The only real danger comes from looking directly into a laser beam for too long.

Nope. this will definitely blind you
