Redpill me on looking at the eclipse. These are just junk right?

I don't plan on staring just having a quick peak when its in totality. Will I frick my eyes? People hundreds and thousands of years ago didn't have sun glasses, why are we obsessed with eclipse safety?

    You can look at the totality, but even at 99% coverage it's as harmful as looking at the bare sun. The glasses allow you to watch the eclipse before and after totality.

        Yeah, but you won't see anything. The sun is so searingly bright it just looks like flashbang.

      I thought at full totality the danger was supposed to be even greater than looking at the regular sun. Something about the corona being extra bright, but the iris not contracting.

        No, full totality is when it's safe to look at. If you didn't look at the totality with your bare eyes you missed out on the coolest part of the whole experience.

          Is eclipse-viewing more dangerous or less dangerous than looking at the sun? I look directly at the sun for a few seconds every other day when I sunbathe.

            Full totality is safe, anything less than full totality is exactly the same amount of danger as looking at the sun on any other day.

    Bought a pair at Kroger. If I go blind, I can be part of a class action lawsuit against them that gets me a free pair of glasses for the next eclipse.

            All my free eclipse glasses don't have this message. The Amazon glasses I got last year have the warning.

            They're all still made of the same materials treated in the same manner, so I would bet the ones without the warning still degrade all the same and the ones with the warning are just more honest and thorough.

            I meant that all who got free glasses are fricked if they reuse them in 20 years. I know they are the same and it's fricked up they didn't add that message. There is already one anon who used the 2017 glasses who is now fricked.

            Oh, you've got a point. Hopefully 20 years is long enough for everyone to lose them anyway.

      According to NASA, any glasses that conform to the ISO whatever spec are safe to use for as long as they're intact. Those warning messages are from pre-ISO days.

        That's good to hear. Maybe I did something moronic irrespective of the glasses. Either way I'm never looking at or near the Sun ever again, eclipse or otherwise. It's just not worth the risk. The burning sensation subsided and my vision thankfully isn't completely fricked. Hard to say to what marginal degree things are blurrier, if at all.

    I looked at the partial with eclipse glasses (which I couldn't see a damn thing with except for real bright glasses) and the totality with the naked eye. My eyes feel fine but it's like I can still see an ever so slight afterimage of the sun, like when you look at a bright light and still see it afterwards for a few seconds, but at a much lesser degree and for longer. Am I gonna died?

      I stared at the total eclipse for too long(was completely awestruck and lost track of time) and got hit by the light coming out afterwards. I immediately looked away but my eyes still feel funny.

    i put the eclipse glasses on and then put binoculars over them. i saw the sun really big for a second or two then i felt something really hot and for an instant saw the brightest light i've ever seen. the binoculars burned a pin sized hole through the glasses. 48 hours later my eyes feel fine but i am worried about long term damage
