|Have You Ever Looked Directly At The Sun During A Solar Eclipse? by RubiesBanking: 7:22am On Jun 09|
I have read articles talking about how looking at the sun especially during a solar eclipse can cause a permanent eye damage or a hole in your retina.
Even watched a video by a guy named Mark Thompson, who did an experiment to see what will happen to a pig eye if it viewed the sun directly. I have already attached the video of the experiment below.
WARNING...THIS IS GRAPHIC.
I also managed to get a few comments from people who made the mistake of viewing the beauty of nature during a solar eclipse with 0% protection and how it regretted that mistake.
Sometime in the early 80's, 82 or 3 I think, there was a solar eclipse. We were TOLD, no idea who, but the rumor was that it was safe to look at it through exposed x-ray film.
Not me, but 3 friends of mine lost a bet a while back. They each had to stare at the sun for a couple of seconds. One came out okay, but the other two got some form of color blindness. It was a shame because one of the two was a successful graphic designer, but it worked out. He now asks his SO whenever he creating something if the colors are okay, and he goes on as normal
Despite all these stories on the effect of looking at the sun especially during a solar eclipse, some guys feel it's a hoax by scientists (won't blame them since they're used to hearing how eating beans and plantain is bad for your health).
An annular solar eclipse will occur on June 10, 2021, when the Moon will pass between Earth and the Sun, thereby partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth
Now, my question is anyone here is suffering from an eye damage caused by looking at a solar eclipse or know someone that made the same mistake?
