At Laserglow Technologies we strive to offer the highest quality laser products. That's why we carry green laser pointers for countless applications, including star pointing, presentations and photography.
For superior visibility - choose green.
When you cannot compromise on visibility a green laser pointer is the right choice. Green laser pointers are five times as bright as red laser pointers of the same output power. This is because the human eye is the most sensitive to green light. Also, the optics required to produce green light versus red light result in better beam characteristics and a more concentrated and visible spot of light.
Range - What's the the real answer?
Useful range depends primarily on your intended use, atmospheric conditions and ambient lighting. It's like trying to define the range of a light bulb.
The light doesn't just stop at a given distance. It fades out and gradually becomes less visible and less useful depending on what you are trying to accomplish.
Generally, at night, a 5 mW green laser is useful up to several hundred meters. A 200 mW green laser is useful up to several kilometers. To be more specific than this you must determine the application and the surrounding environment.
Beware of companies who simply claim a specific range for their lasers. They have no way of knowing the useful range of a laser without knowing the application and the conditions surrounding it.
If your application requires a specific range or extended distance please contact us to help determine the best laser for your application. Our team of professionals can determine a laser that meets your application requirements in distance, beam intensity and beam size at your desired target.
For safety - ensure that your laser is IR filtered.
The optical technology necessary to create solid state green lasers requires that infrared light be converted to green light within the laser housing. However, as this process is not 100% efficient, the remaining infrared light must be filtered such that it does not exit the aperture of the laser. While green laser light at <5 mW (less than 5 milliwatts) is considered eye safe for momentary exposure, it takes as much as 300 mW of invisible IR (infrared) light to produce this. An IR filter is crucial in order to protect your eyes, as it prevents the IR light from escaping along with the green light.
Recently, a team led by physicist Charles Clark at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) published a paper that concluded that many of the poor quality green laser pointers which are available online do not have proper infrared (IR) filters, and as a result they produce a potentially eye-damaging amount of stray IR light. This IR light can be eliminated with the addition of an IR filter.
All green laser pointers sold by Laserglow have a quality IR filter installed, and as a result there is no IR leakage from the laser diode. This is just one of the reasons that our green laser pointers are considered to be the best choice for quality, reliability, and safety.

For quality and price - choose Laserglow!
We take care to only work with manufacturers that can meet our high quality standards. Every laser pointer model we offer is built to be not only competitively priced but to be durable and stylish as well. We also individually test every laser that we sell in order to ensure correct output power for our 3 mW and 5 mW models.
We are confident that our laser pointers are the best on the market because we have in our stockroom countless manufacturer samples that had to be rejected due to poor housing construction, unreliable functioning, low output power and the lack of IR filtration.
Laserglow's Green Laser Pointer Quality Features:
- Solid threading for quick and easy battery changes
- Individually tested to ensure correct output power
- Durable button mechanisms and solid housing construction
- APC technology to maintain constant output power. APC (Automatic Power Control) is a system that uses an optical feedback loop to ensure stable laser output
- All AR-coated glass and polymer optics, preventing back-reflections which would otherwise result in scatter and a "messy" beam
- Several stylish housing models to choose from
Our selection of laser pointers makes it easy to find a model that suits your style and works perfectly for your application. Looking for a unique gift idea? Choose from our wide selection for a perfect gift for teachers, colleagues, business contacts, clients, friends and family.
The Lyra series green laser pointers are a perfect choice for business meetings, classroom presentations and safe home laser experimentation. Five to ten times more visible than common red laser pointers, the Lyra series are ideal for maximizing visibility, even on bright projection screens, while not compromising safety. Available in three carefully selected finishes to match any style. With the look of a high end fountain pen and the function of a quality timepiece the Lyra is great to own and even better to give as a gift!
Lyra 532 nm Green Laser Pointer
Sol and Luna Gold & Platinum Edition
This laser pointer is the ultimate in style for any presentation or lecture. True 18k gold or platinum plating gives this green laser pointer an unforgettable shine, and the laser itself is as impressive and reliable as any of our regular Lyra series pointers. The highly focused green beam will be visible against projection or HDTV screens where other less powerful lasers can get washed out. This special limited edition laser makes a great gift for the person on your list who enjoys a little bit of flash in their wardrobe and wants their accessories to look as good as they do!
Limited quantities so pick one up while they last!
The Galileo is the latest in functionality, reliability and output power stability. The click-on, click-off switch allows hands-free operation and easy use when continuous operation is required. The miniature heat sink means that the output will not drop during long operating periods, and the single lithium battery will keep the unit running for up to 2 hours! The Galileo is ideal for alignment, astronomy, and all other continuous use applications.

Galileo Pro 532 nm Green Laser Pointer with Adjustable Beam Direction
An Altair laser is the perfect tool for professionals and laser hobbyists who need full control over the size of the projected beam. The projected spot size can be easily adjusted using the focusing ring at the front of the laser pointer. The combination of this added functionality with improved green laser pointer technology makes the Altair the perfect choice for many applications, from being used at check-points by troops in Iraq to demonstrating the properties of light to high school students.
The Anser is Laserglow's latest addition to the green laser pointer line-up. The pointer does not include a pocket clip or any glossy finishes, the flat black finish gives the Anser a tactical, utilitarian look and feel. The Anser is our lowest-priced green laser pointer and comes in one power level, a guaranteed 3 mW to 5 mW.
