With the total solar eclipse coming up in just a few days, experts are warning people that this is a serious natural phenomenon. They stress that in order to view the eclipse, you must to wear special glasses so you won't go blind.
Many people aren't taking this seriously but 70-year-old Lou Tomososki knows the damage that the sun can do to your eyes if they are exposed to the eclipse. Lou was only a teenager when he looked at the sun directly during an eclipse. He only looked for about 20 seconds but the damage to his eye is still there all these years later. Even though it was only a brief glimpse it resulted in a pea-sized spot in his right eye.
Now that another solar eclipse is about to take place, Lou wants to warn others about these dangers and to ensure that no one else damages their eyes like he did. Please view the eclipse with caution using only special eclipse glasses. God is giving us this beautiful event for us to enjoy the beauty of His creation, so be safe!
