It's an exciting day! Here's some safety tips for anyone planning to view the eclipse. What do you plan to do? ... See MoreSee Less
Protect your eyes during the spectacle of the solar eclipse with this advice:
“Looking at the eclipse even briefly with an unprotected, naked eye can lead to permanent retina damage and even blindness,” says ophthalmologist Rafael Ufret-Vincenty, M.D. “Your regular sunglasses, even if they are very dark, are definitely not enough.”
This is especially important during the partial eclipse expected in North Texas. It will not be safe to look at the sun at any time without appropriate eye protection. The moon will cover the sun almost 80 percent during the partial eclipse from about 11:40 a.m. until 2:40 p.m. on August 21. The maximum eclipse will occur around 1:09 p.m.
“Look for specially made eclipse glasses or hand-held solar viewers with a filter level of ISO 12312-2, an international standard of eclipse safety,” Dr. Ufret-Vincenty added
Viewing the eclipse through a regular camera lens (including the one on your cell phone), binoculars or a telescope is dangerous, even if you are wearing your eclipse glasses. The concentrated rays of the sun can damage the solar filter. “Opt for solar filters designed specifically for cameras and other optical devices," says Dr. Ufret-Vincenty.
