Where to Buy Eclipse Glasses: Trustworthy Sources Amid Fakes

Local Eye Clinic Warns Public About Potential Fake Eclipse Glasses

Considering that demand, the American Astronomical Society has updated its safety advice "in response to alarming reports" of unsafe eclipse-viewers popping up online. If you buy a fake pair of eclipse glasses, you're out a buck or so.

Here's the deal: Glasses that are safe for directly viewing the sun must meet the standard, set by the International Organization for Standardization, and the glasses or viewer will then indicate that they are ISO 12312-2 compliant.

Park. Solar-viewing glasses, an eclipse guide and space-themed activities will be provided from 1 to 4 p.m.

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

Ophthalmologists are spreading the word on how to safely view the solar eclipse on August 21.

Retail chains listed include 7-Eleven, Best Buy, Kroger, Lowe's, and Walmart, among others.


Each workshop will run about two hours and children will cycle through several astronomy and space camp-like situations and view the eclipse that is occurring on that date.

"Directly staring into the sun, even for a few seconds, can cause significant permanent damage to your eyes", said Dr. Christina Weng, an assistant professor of ophthalmology at Baylor. According to AAS Press Officer and task-force representative Rick Fienberg, there may be some legitimate suppliers not on their list yet only because they "have no knowledge of them or that we haven't convinced ourselves they're safe".

Normal sunglasses will not protect your eyes, Frantz said. The moon will block the sun and turn daylight into darkness.

"You can see how similar they are", Jerit said as he showed Megan Alexander a pair. "Helena is right in the path to view the solar eclipse so I think it's going to be pretty exciting outside and watching it and experiencing it as a community".

The last time a total solar eclipse was visible from the continental USA was about 40 years ago, on February 26, 1979.
