Laser accidents and incidents are an unfortunate but nevertheless critical source of information for those involved in laser safety standards, medical research and training. Laser safety standards are based on quantitative animal research as well as lessons learned from retinal injury induced by accidental human laser exposure. Laser accident case analyses provide important functional and treatment guidelines that help establish laser safety standards. The LAIR helps scientists and clinicians integrate and organize their respective contributions to laser safety and medical prognosis and treatment of laser eye injuries. This paper defines the scope and means of data collection, distribution, presentation and analysis implemented in LAIR.
