WARNING: Eye Safety During Eclipse


  “It’s unsafe to look at the sun with your naked eye — or with conventional sunglasses, a smartphone, binoculars or a telescope,” says Rajesh Rao, M.D.) a retina surgeon and an assistant professor of ophthalmology and visual sciences at the University of Michigan.  

That’s because staring at the sun, no matter how small the sliver or length of time, can cause temporary (and sometimes permanent) vision damage.

The ONLY safe way you can watch an eclipse is through specially designed glasses with solar filters.

Only purchase ones with an “ISO 12312-2” designation that indicate the product has met international safety standards.

We will be well south of the area that will be in totality, so at no time should you look at the sun without the protection of the special glasses.  If you do not have these glasses, DO NOT look at the sun.  From our area, there is no safe time during the eclipse to look at the sun without the protective eyewear.  We cannot stress this enough.  You run the risk of permanent eye damage if you do not heed these warnings.
