    We see with the enzymes that our eyes produce. Some times a flash will deplete those enzymes and we see spots in our eyes where those enzymes are depleted. Sometimes it will take some time for our body to make more enzymes but if our retinas are not burned no permanent damage occurs. If we were to look at the sun for example, our eyes may be burned so that when we have replaced those enzymes our vision will not return.

    Generally a flash is so fast, damage does not occur. The affect is a temporary effect.

    Don't you just hate auto correct when you mean "your" and it chooses "you're?"

    The look of your eye can easily be affected which shows up as red eye.

    In terms of long-term damage, technically if you were to spend enough time being flashed in the face, yes, a flash can adversely affect your eyes.

    I suppose to answer your question more precisely, it really depends upon what you mean by "affected."

    Are you asking about physiological effects or the outcome of the image?

    Yes, you'll go blind if you take too many pictures with the flash on.

    How can I top the wonderfully informative answers posted so far? I'll try. I can recall reading somewhere, quite some time ago, that using automatic TTL flash for humans or animals could cause your subject to blink due to the preflash the system uses, causing portraits with closed eyes. As far as if it could harm anyone's eyes, I'm not aware of any evidence of that but everyone is different.

    No, I do fine but I rarely take professional photography.
