  1. be careful when handling them without their coating (like here). They are so fine they can penetrate your skin (or eyeball) and then break (well, it’s glass). And being glass it’s really difficult for your doctor to see and remove it.
    (a typical fiber optic cable has a diameter of 125µm (4.9 mil), plus buffer and jacket, both of which need to be removed for splicing)
