The Solar Eclipse
 
We are concerned for the eyesight of all Americans on Monday, Aug 21, 2017.  Every person young or old must know that there is NO absolutely safe way to directly view the solar eclipse. Solar eclipse glasses with ISO 12312-2 certification or a welding shield with protective shade 14 are the only way people can watch the eclipse and mitigate the risk of vision loss. These devices, if authentic and not compromised, block out 99.999% of visible light--- you can’t see ANYTHING through them except the sun. The glasses are thousands of times darker and stronger than your darkest pair of sunglasses, so please do not try to use one or multiple pair of standard or polarized sunglasses to look. Even approved glasses pose some risk, as there is no way to guarantee that they are free of manufacturer's defects. 
The real danger in looking at the sun during an eclipse is that the eclipse makes it actually possible to gaze upon it for more than a moment. Because so much of the sun’s light is blocked by the moon, if one looks at it without full protection, it does not cause pain as looking at the sun does on a regular day.  Just like sunburn to the skin, the effects are not felt or noticed immediately, and even looking for only seconds at the smallest sliver of the sun can burn a blind spot right to your most precious central vision. This is called solar retinopathy, and can cause permanent vision loss. As the eclipse passes over most of our cities, the moon will block 59 to 99% of the sun. For any city not in the path of totality, there will be no time where it is safe to view the eclipse without the solar filters.  Please discuss this with your children, especially those that will be home unsupervised during the eclipse.
Solar eclipse glasses are sold out, or in very low supply, everywhere. There is little chance you will be able to get a safe, non counterfeit pair, before Monday.  Keep your eyes and vision safe this time and keep them away from the sky because this is NOT a once in a lifetime occurrence. There will be another Total Eclipse over the U.S. 4/8/2024.  You may also use this opportunity to have your kids build their own solar eclipse viewer: https://www.livescience.com/33906-solar-eclipse-viewer.html
