How do Solar Eclipses Blind you

Looking directly at the sun, even during a solar eclipse, can damage your retina

The retina is the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye.

When you look directly at the sun, all of these colors of light bombard your retina

The best way to prevent solar retinopathy is to never look directly at the sun

If you want to view a solar eclipse, you must use special eclipse glasses or a solar filter

It's important to make sure that the glasses you purchase are ISO-12312-2 compliant

Never look at the sun without eclipse glasses

Another option is to project the image of the sun onto a screen using a telescope or binoculars

Solar eclipses are amazing events, but it's important to protect your eyes during them
