How to Safely View the Sun

Throughout our lives, we’ve been warned never to look directly at the sun. This is sound advice since looking at the sun can cause severe eye damage, potentially leading to permanent blindness. Despite these risks, there are rare occasions when people are tempted to gaze at the sun—most notably during a solar eclipse.

The Vital Role of Solar Eclipse Glasses

When preparing to view a solar eclipse, it’s crucial to remember one key safety measure: wearing solar eclipse glasses. These glasses are essential because looking directly at the sun, even during an eclipse, can cause severe eye damage.

At Phillips-Safety, we understand the significance of preserving your vision during celestial spectacles. That’s why we offer a premium selection of solar eclipse glasses, meticulously crafted to provide optimal protection. With our glasses, you can confidently experience the wonder of the next solar eclipse without compromising your eye health.

Key Features of Solar Eclipse Glasses

Effective Light Blockage

Our solar eclipse glasses feature high-quality European welding shade 14 glass lenses, ensuring superior protection against harmful solar radiation. These lenses block 99 percent of ultraviolet light and 97 percent of infrared radiation, safeguarding your eyes during solar observation or welding activities.

n addition to their protective lenses, our solar eclipse glasses boast sturdy frames, ensuring they remain secure and intact throughout your viewing experience. Say goodbye to flimsy cardboard alternatives—opt for reliability and durability with Phillips-Safety.

All lens materials used in our solar eclipse glasses are certified to be Shade 14 by DIN Certo and Class 1 by notified body 0196 CE. Additionally, they meet all Transmission Requirements specified by ISO 12312-2:2015 for direct solar observation.

Beware of Fake Solar Eclipse Glasses

It’s critical to ensure that your solar eclipse glasses are genuine and comply with the international standard for safe solar viewing, ISO 12312-2. There have been instances of counterfeit glasses on the market that falsely claim to offer adequate protection. These fake glasses can lead to serious eye damage. Always verify that the glasses meet the ISO standard to ensure your safety. If you have any doubts about the legitimacy of your solar eclipse glasses, ask a sales associate for confirmation.
