  • Cautionary tale: Man goes partially blind after 1963 solar eclipse

Eye doctors recommend that you buy eclipse glasses or hand-held solar viewers that meet worldwide safety standards.

On August 21, many people will want to look out their window or be outside to experience the rare eclipse.

Optometrist Dr. Greg Hagedorn said, "the same rays that can burn your skin can burn the inside of your eyes and cause damage that you may not be able to recover from."

"If you look at the sun without eclipse glasses during a partial eclipse, or on a regular day, you are going to fry the back of your eye", Vann said.

There is an easy way to prevent eye damage when viewing eclipses.

Some stores like Lowe's and Best Buy have already sold all their eclipse glasses, though the Science Center of Iowa still has some in stock.

Leading doctors suggest that depending on sky conditions, it can take less than 90 seconds of looking at the sun directly to cause permanent damage to your eye.

- Before looking at the sun, cover your eyes with the eclipse viewers while standing still.

If you choose to watch the eclipse from an inside window, you still need to wear the approved eyewear. Glance at the sun, turn away and then remove your filter.

It's safe to look at the eclipse in places where there's totality - meaning the sun is completely covered.

- If you should experience discomfort or vision problems following the eclipse, visit your local eye care professional for a comprehensive eye examination. On NASA's website, you can learn how to build your own viewfinder and find other safety tips for the eclipse.
