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.
- It can take up to 12 hours for damage to become noticeable.
- Blurry vision, spots that linger can be a sign of damage.
- 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.
