Signs of Eye Damage from Watching Eclipse

Many folks observed the eclipse on Monday - hopefully using approved eclipse viewing glasses or other safe techniques. But if you're afraid that you may have eye damage from watching the eclipse - maybe you glanced at the sun, or are afraid your viewers weren't approved here's the signs of eye damage you can watch out for.

  1. It can take up to 12 hours for damage to become noticeable.
  2. Blurry vision, spots that linger can be a sign of damage.
  3. If your eyes hurt of felt strange after looking through approved viewers - it's probably okay, it takes some time for your eyes to adjust back to normal.

If you are experiencing any of these signs - it may be worth it to make an appointment with your eye doctor to get things checked out.

Here's some great photos of Dr. A and the gang checking out the eclipse!
