First of all, what is a solar eclipse? It is an astronomical phenomenon that occurs when the moon passes between the Earth and the sun.

The moon blocks the sunlight entirely or partially in certain areas of the Earth.

What makes this experience more spectacular is that it occurs during the day.

In the places that experience totality, it’s pitch black for several minutes.

What happens during this phenomenon?

It is a fascinating spectacle and often attract the attention of observers and astronomy enthusiasts from around the world.

However, looking directly at the sun during an eclipse can be dangerous for your eyesight without proper protection.

If you look at the sun during an eclipse without protection, you could damage your eyesight.

The doctors who treated him believed he used glasses that did not meet safety standards. It is a permanent condition.
