MN Health Staff Writer | August 3, 2017

Unknown to many people, the solar eclipse on August 21 can cause permanent damage to your eyes if proper safety glasses are not used. Staring at the eclipse for 100 seconds will burn your retinas causing permanent damage to your eyes and even the top sunglasses won’t be able to help. These special eclipse glasses are a hot commodity as of late, but with that a multitude of knockoffs are popping up. Most of these knockoffs are being sold on Amazon and are hard to distinguish from the real ones.
