Local Eye Clinic Warns Public About Potential Fake Eclipse Glasses

The first total solar eclipse to cross the country in more than a generation is coming Monday, Aug. 21.

While there are several ways to observe an eclipse, one of the more popular ways to do so is by using a pair of solar eclipse glasses. They can even fraudulently print the fake ISO certification on the product (or on their website), even though what they're selling could be something as flimsy as novelty 3-D glasses. Of course, as we're sure you've heard, there's a dark side to trying to get a glimpse of the eclipse. Also make sure that children and others around you are familiar with these safety precautions - it is every ophthalmologist's hope that everyone will enjoy the eclipse safely.

So in short, you'll want to be wary of knockoff glasses, the AAS said.

Of course, during the event even with proper eclipse glasses, you'll need to put them on BEFORE you look at the sun and look AWAY from the sun before you take them off again. Glasses can also be purchased from Parkland Planetarium for $1.

If that's the case, experts recommend that you should contact whomever sold you the filter and demand a refund or credit for a return, then buy a replacement from one of the sources listed on the AAS's reputable-vendors page.

Eclipses happen as the moon moves between the Earth and sun, casting a shadow across whichever part of the world that spins by.

No matter how you see it, this eclipse can change your perspective.

If you prefer to do your shopping at brick-and-mortar retailers, says MLive, you can buy approved eclipse glasses at 7-Eleven, Best Buy, Kroger, Love's Travel Stops, Lowe's, Flying Js, Toys "R" Us and Walmart, particularly in places in the path of totality.

"For instance, if you were looking at the word "CAT", they may be able to see the "C" and the "T", but miss the "A". "Don't wait until the last minute to attain your filter or eclipse glasses".
