  LLLT General Precautions

Laser beam are extremely dangerous to human eyes.
Never look at laser beam directly and/or through optical lens.
Because some Aculas lasers emit invisible infrared light, the usage of
laser shower or laser probe in the area of the face and around the eyes must proceed with appropriate care and caution. Invisible infrared laser light penetrating the eye may cause serious harm after extended exposure. Therefore, the use of the optional laser safety goggles for the patient and clinician is advised.
  LLLT Contraindications
Thyroid Gland
While research results have been at odds, the current consensus is to avoid LLLT irradiation over the area of the thyroid gland.
The LLLT is effective for the patients with hypothyroidism induced by chronic autoimmune thyroiditis (CAT) in the recently published report. (PMID: 22718472)
Prudent medical care dictates that LLLT not be performed over the uterus of a known pregnant woman.
Although the research is again at odds in this case, the recommendation is to not irradiate over or near a known primary or secondary carcinoma lesion or tumor. As physiotherapists, it is a general contraindication to use laser energy over cancerous sites due to unknown long-term effects. However, current research is investigating the physiological mechanisms by which photodynamic therapy can be utilized in combination with current cancer treatments.
Not to treat cancer is mainly because of legal reasons.
Radiation Therapy Patient
Because LLLT has been documented to have an effect on the human immune system, in patients taking immunosuppressant medications, LLLT is not recommended at this time. Several studies have demonstrated positive effects of LLLT in counteracting radiation therapy nausea; however, more research is needed.
Treatment of over Sympathetic Ganglia
The vagus nerves and cardiac regions of patients with known heart disease are not recommended for LLLT.
While some have suggested caution in using LLLT in the presence of pacemakers, no evidence has been presented. Because LLLT uses light, no influence on the pacemaker results from its use.
Pulsed visible light can have an effect on certain individuals susceptible to this condition, however, invisible, non-pulsed laser light has had no reported detrimental effect on seizure-susceptible patients.
