    There is a lot more UV in this light than sunlight. It is a similar thing to staring at the sun, there is enough energy in the light to permanently damage the eyes - in fact it can cause total and permanent blindness (electric arc welding). Total blindness is rare however, more likely in poverty situations (countries) where few precautions are taken.
