Will MagSafe 2 damage my screen/main components of my MacBook Pro 13" (2013)?

I accidentally brushed my MagSafe 2 over my screen and directly to the left of my keyboard. I felt a little resistance when I put it there on accident so I immediately picked it up. It was there for a very short time, but I was just wondering if this could have damaged the main components or the screen. I just want to be sure :)

I doubt having a magnet near a laptop screen for a few seconds can cause any sort of lasting damage. In the old days, having a magnet near a crt screen could produce some interesting light shows and sometimes produced lasting distortion. LCD and LED screens aren't vulnerable to this sort of damage.

Not that a magnet would do anything in the first place, but the magnet is not in the MagSafe adapter. The magnet is in the MagSafe port in the Mac.
