Staring at the sun without certified protective glasses can cause a type of eye damage called solar retinopathy. Usually, people notice symptoms — including blurry vision, discolored spots in vision, pain, or a loss of central vision — by the next day. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms after staring at the eclipse, call an eye doctor.
If you've been wondering whether you damaged your eyes by viewing the solar eclipse, you're not alone! Many people have taken to social media complaining about their vision or headaches - whether they were wearing glasses or not.
