Man Who Suffered Eye Damage from Solar Eclipse Has This Warning
Aug 19, 2017, 06:51
Warnings abound about the danger of gazing at the eclipse with the naked eye, even when all but a sliver of the sun is obscured by the moon.
"It doesn't get any worse and it doesn't get any better", he said.
"I'm going to go out and enjoy it", he said.
Tomososki said that he wished he knew more about the risks of looking at the sun during an eclipse that day, and he hopes that others will heed his warning to wear eye protection during the upcoming eclipse. But it wasn't until months later that he found out he'd burned a hole in his retina during an eye doctor appointment.
Suh, who also is an associate professor at the Truhlsen Eye Institute's department of ophthalmology and visual sciences and department of pediatrics at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, said solar retinopathy occurs when harmful radiation from the sun reaches the eye.
What Tomososki experienced is called solar retinopathy - damage caused to the retina from looking at the sun.
The sun's rays carry many different types of light that can cause physical and chemical damage to your vision. "Unfortunately there's not a treatment for it, so once that damage is done you have to wait and hopefully things improve and your body can heal some, but a lot of damage can be permanent". "A lot of the damage can be permanent".
The damage occurs in the fovea, a small spot in the retina that is responsible for sharp, central vision.
People with the condition show a characteristic pattern of eye damage during eye exams. When he said yes, the doctor joked that he got laser surgery on his eye even before it was developed, except it was done in the wrong spot, and that he did it for too long.
Keep in mind that plenty of fake vendors are selling solar eclipse glasses claiming they'll protect your eyes.
So eclipse glasses are a must on Monday. However, that only applies to the people viewing the eclipse in the path of totality, in which they will actually see the sun blocked by the moon. As a result, Tomososki now states that he had been living with a blind spot at the center of his eye for the last 55 years. But the second the sun comes out "the eclipse glasses have to go back on". So please: if you're going to look up at the sky toward the solar eclipse, take safety seriously.
