The FDA has issued an alert consumers about the risk of eye and skin injuries from laser pointers.

Although most toys with lasers are safe and comply with performance standards, some products such as hand-held laser pointers are being misused as light sabers or other toys.

In addition, illegal and potentially dangerous, high-powered laser pointers are available on the Internet and in stores.

The FDA said consumers should not buy these lasers for themselves or as gifts for others.
