I’m pregnant and work as a laser physician. I’m using long-pulse Nd:YAG laser. Can I still work?

To my knowledge, there is no significant data for this subject. When light sources are used with correct protective eyewear, it should not lead to any pregnancy contraindication.

For example, if you were working in my office, I would counsel you to continue to be cautious about the use of protective eyewear. I could foresee no issue to an unborn child when using the Nd:YAG laser.
