Keep Your Eyes Safe While Watching the Solar Eclipse This August

Dr. Winter Lewis from InFocus Eye Care talks about what type of eye protection is needed during the solar eclipse on August 21st. Many people across Central Oregon will set their sights on the total solar eclipse and without the proper glasses, damage to the cornea can occur.

When direct viewing, glasses have to meet the ISO requirements. For everyday protection, especially in a place where outdoor fun is always on the list, make sure you’re wearing sunglasses with UVA and UVB protection. Particularly when you’re skiing or playing in the snow or paddling down the Deschutes River.
