Looking directly at the sun without eye protection can cause serious eye damage or blindness. But there are ways to safely observe the sun. To view the sun directly (and safely), use “solar-viewing glasses” or “eclipse glasses” or “personal solar filters” (these are all names for the same thing), according to the safety recommendations from NASA. The “lenses” of solar-viewing glasses are made from special-purpose solar filters that are hundreds of thousands of times darker than regular sunglasses, according to Rick Fienberg, press officer for the American Astronomical Society (AAS). These glasses are so dark that the face of the sun should be the only thing visible through them, Solar-viewing glasses can be used to view a solar eclipse, or to look for sunspots on the sun’s surface.
But beware! NASA and the AAS recommend that solar-viewing or eclipse glasses meet the current international standard: ISO 12312-2. Some older solar-viewing glasses may meet previous standards for eye protection, but not the new international standard.
some manufacturers are making solar-viewing glasses with plastic frames, rather than the traditional paper frames. While these may look like regular sunglasses, do not be mistaken. Sunglasses are never a substitute for solar-viewing glasses. Some people may even try to view the sun through two or three pairs of sunglasses in an attempt to replicate the protective power of real solar-viewing glasses; however, even multiple pairs of sunglasses will not protect your eyes from sun damage.
