You went tanning and your mom turned on the tanning bed for you but she had no eye wear can she have any permanent damage done to her eyes last night her eyes felt weird like dust and burning sensatio?
Not really. Short exposures would have no effect. it sounds like something similar to a welders flash but not as bad. when you get a welders flash it takes a very fine layer off your eyeball, and has a horrible feeling of sand in your eyes, but no long lasting effects.
