Yes, I’ve done that as well. Moving on to my specific questions, please.

 I measured the spectralis devices in our office once. I don’t remember the numbers for each device but they were all below the OSHA threshold for unprotected all day continuous use.

 Greetings, I've grown more curious regarding the audio level of the Spectralis while actively imaging?  The laser box audio level is also of interest, but not at this time.
For those of you who operate a HB Spectralis for testing modes OCT, photos or IVFA:   1) do you use it every clinic day?    - if not, how many days a week?  2) Do you use it 1 - 4 hours on those clinic days? 3) Do you use it 5-7 hours on those clinic days? 4) have you used the cSLO for 1- 5 years? 5) have you used the device for 6 - 10 years? 6) used it for more than 10 years? 7) Do you now, or have you noticed Tinnitus (ringing or roaring sound in your ears) in the past?     - if so please describe duration and intensity? 
TGIF, Stuart
