How do you use eclipse glasses?

Put your eclipse glasses on over them, or hold your handheld viewer in front of them.

Stand still and cover your eyes with your eclipse glasses or solar viewer before looking up at the bright Sun.

After looking at the Sun, turn away and remove your filter — do not remove it while looking at the Sun.

Why do you wear glasses during an eclipse?

Solar eclipse glasses are inexpensive, very dark filters with cardboard or paper frames that are designed to protect your eyes from retina damage when viewing an eclipse. Certified “eclipse glasses” offer adequate protection from the sun’s potentially damaging UV rays when viewing a solar eclipse.

Is it safe to see solar eclipse with sunglasses?

Never look directly at the Sun. You can seriously hurt your eyes, and even go blind. Proper eye protection, like eclipse glasses or a Sun filter, is the only safe option. Sunglasses don’t work.
