  • Man who Suffered Eye Damage in 1962 Solar Eclipse Warns Others about the Risks of Directly Looking at the Sun

Tomososki saw a partial solar eclipse in 1963, as the path of totality went through Canada.

In 1962, Lou Tomososki and his friend Roger Duval were among those who enjoyed the spectacle of watching a solar eclipse. He compared it to having your picture taken and seeing the flashbulb. He closed his left eye but kept his right eye open. and ended up with a "burned hole in his retina". And 55 years later, "Nothing has changed", he told TODAY.

A total solar eclipse is slated to happen on Monday, as the Moon will cross in front of the Sun, blotting out the light from our favorite star for a couple of minutes along a 70-mile-wide swath of the USA that runs from OR to SC.

"Millions of people out there are going to be looking out at it..."

According to Tomososki, he and his friend looked at the solar eclipse for merely 20 seconds. "That makes me sick". "It's doesn't get any worse or better".

But just as many people are planning to head outside as the sky turns dark, experts warn looking directly into the sun can cause eye damage that can last a lifetime. It's a pinpoint of blindness, often in the middle of the eye.

As the moon starts to block our view of the sun - covering up to 87 percent of it in Chicago by early afternoon - some might be tempted to witness the rare event with their naked eye, Bressler said.

"It'll cause loss of vision, it can cause blind spots in your vision, and it can cause your vision to be warped as well", he said.

"The brightness of the sun and the rays are so direct and so intense, that it literally burns the back part of your eye", says Retinal Specialist at L.O. Eye Care, Dr. Ahmed El-Sanhouri.

Instead, he recommends using certified eclipse glasses, or building a pinhole projector as an indirect way to watch.
