Many first time solar eclipse watchers probably don’t know that a partial solar eclipse can fry their eyes. The risk of blindness is even greater for those who view the eclipse through an unfiltered telescope or binoculars. After every solar eclipse there are usually some people with permanently blurred vision or blind spots, usually young men who are unprepared for the event. Doctors warn that vision damage can happen very quickly and leave the retina with crescent shaped scars. However, if you are lucky enough to be in the zone of total solar eclipse then it is safe for you to look at the sun during the few minutes that the sun is completely covered by the moon.
