Just a few days ago, the Great American Eclipse happened. Media coverage leading up to the event was astronomical, and we jumped into the story as well here and here. (In fact, our first story is our top-read story of the month!)
But even with the media cautioning eclipse viewers to use eye protection, providing sources to purchase eclipse glasses, and offering tips on how to create safe viewing devices at home, many people didn’t heed the warning. Including U.S. President Donald Trump.
A quick look at Twitter shows that many eclipse viewers are now complaining of ocular pain after taking a peek without proper eye protection.
