Yes all the airline pilots are scrambling for laser proof sun glasses. If you make laser proof sun glasses, I see a small fortune coming your way.

I remember a few years back (may be more than a few years hehe) that 2 SeaKing Canadian Pilots where patrolling and went near a Russian (I think it was Russian) boat and felt tingling in there eye's they did not thing anything of it.
a few days later, half blind they got checked and each had 3 to 5 little laser holes in there eyes (don't remember the technicality of it) :( both had to retire and will never fly again.
those lasers are pretty scary that is for sure. now I am sure the ones the airliners saw where not dangerous but you just never know. hopefully it was just some idiot's idea of having fun and that he will get caught and get tought a good lesson
