Infographic: Eye Safety During the 4 Stages of the Total Eclipse
“Don’t stare at the sun, son!” We know, we know, we’ve heard it all before. Staring at the sun is bad for your eyes. But what about when the sun is partially hidden? And what if it’s a once in a lifetime event that you just have to see for yourself?
All summer, Shelly Cadman of Eyes on Fremont has been sweating this upcoming event, knowing she’ll be meeting with clients with irritated or worst case scenario, damaged eyes from not following their good mother’s advice.
We’ll save you all the technical, optometry mumbo jumbo but bottomline is, it’s not a good idea to watch the Eclipse without proper safety glasses. Don’t have a pair yet? Pick up a few pairs for you and your family at Eyes on Fremont, located at 111 S. Broadway in Riverton. First come, first serve.
