disadvantages of solar eclipse
It is believed that seeing an eclipse without protection has a bad effect on the eyes. There is a risk of loss of eyesight and complete blindness.
Scientists believe that the moon on a solar eclipse is four million times brighter than the full moon, which can directly affect the eyes. However, by taking some precautions, you can enjoy this view.
According to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), everyone should wear glasses during an eclipse or use an indirect viewing method when viewing a partial solar eclipse. It is never safe to look directly at the sun’s rays, even if the sun is partially obscured.
NASA also believes that this rule applies during a total eclipse as long as the sun is not completely blocked.
According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, looking at the sun even for short periods of time without protection can cause permanent damage to your retina, resulting in a blindness called solar retinopathy.
The Australian Radiation Safety and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) warns that you should not use solar eclipse glasses directly to view a solar eclipse.
According to a report by the Health Official, many cases related to loss of eyes were reported after the solar eclipse in the year 1999. A week later, at least 14 people lost their eyesight forever.
