Where to Buy Eclipse Glasses: Trustworthy Sources Amid Fakes

Where to Buy Eclipse Glasses: Trustworthy Sources Amid Fakes

Eclipse glasses are the only safe way to watch the eclipse, according to the American Astronomical Society.

Millions of Americans are getting ready to view the next eclipse on August 21, but Dr. Russell Van Gelder from the University of Washington School of Medicine warns blindness is a risk if you don't have proper eye protection. And even during an eclipse, when the moon is covering the sun's disc, it's not safe to look directly at the sun.

The program is called "How to Fully Experience the 2017 Solar Eclipse" and it will give safety tips and techniques while focusing on fun facts, historical eclipses, and mythology such as heavenly events.

"Looking at the sun will cause permanent damage to your eyes", Schmude said.

"It now appears that some companies are printing the ISO logo and certification label on fake eclipse glasses and handheld solar viewers made with materials that do not block enough [light]", AAS said.

In case you haven't heard, it's not safe to look directly at the sun.

Juliet has issued a recall for eclipse glasses sold from the shop, the group announced on social media. Reuters reported that the market is being flooded with defective knockoffs, so it's also a good idea to make sure that the brand you purchased is approved by the experts before August 21. "It's very exciting for them and they want to take the eye protection off", said Van Gelder. When you put them on without looking at the sun, you should see NOTHING - just BLACK. To view the eclipse, you'll need something at a 12, 13 or 14.

If you prefer to do your shopping at brick-and-mortar retailers, says MLive, you can buy approved eclipse glasses at 7-Eleven, Best Buy, Kroger, Love's Travel Stops, Lowe's, Flying Js, Toys "R" Us and Walmart, particularly in places in the path of totality.

As eclipse glasses sell out at retailers across the USA, customers are panicking as they realize that their glasses may not arrive in time for the once-in-a-lifetime event.
