Solar Eclipse Glasses

Don’t risk it. No need. Of course, we’re talking about solar eclipse glasses. You don’t need those cardboard pieces and specialty materials that we see people use to view a solar eclipse. You can buy a pair eclipse glasses to be able to see every solar eclipse in the future comfortably and safely.

The lenses in welding glasses allow you to safely view a solar Eclipse. The frames of welding glasses that protect against solar eclipses have a shade rating (14). This means that the lenses are very dark. Originally, they were designed to protect the welders’ eyes and shield them from bright flashes that occur during welding. These glasses protect your eyes from UV rays, which are a result of welding.

Shade 14 lenses provide a high level of protection. They can be used for solar eclipse glasses. Why? They block 99.999% of light. They are perfect for eclipse glasses because of the UV protection and total light blocking.

Do I need to use special lenses in order to see a solar eclipse from a distance?

Your regular sunglasses may seem dark enough to view a solar eclipse. However, the lenses of your sunglasses are not dark. Directly staring at a solar Eclipse can cause permanent or long-term eye damage. It may even result in blindness. The same damage can be caused by looking through binoculars or a telescope without enough shade. The amount of damage can vary depending on the ‘totality’ of the eclipse, but it is always best to be safe.

VS Eyewear offers you two options for long-term use that you can utilize today. If you are using an old helmet from a welder, it may not be as safe because you don’t know the shade rating.

Why solar eclipse glasses are important

No one wants to miss a solar eclipse. They are rare, exciting and a once-in-a lifetime event. This natural phenomenon offers a unique and wonderful experience to those who watch it. To observe the phenomenon, you will need to wear eye protection.

Solar eclipse safety measures include protecting your eyes from UV light, infrared light and intense visible light. Direct contact with the eyes can cause serious damage, and even blindness.
