everybody putting there trust is glasses that look like 80s 3d glasses with paper sides that allow sun in through the sides??? who is making these 3d
glasses north korea?
"Allow sun in through the sides"?
Why does that matter? there isn't anything magical about the sunlight during an eclipse that makes the light itself more dangerous. The reason there
are more people who get eye damage during an eclipse is that more people are tempted to look at the Sun during an eclipse. Plus, during near
totality, it seems dark enough for naked-eye viewing without too much glare, but even then the little bit of light that does reach your naked eye is
But eclipse glasses that allow the sun in the sides are no more inherently dangerous than wearing sunglass that allow sun through the sides on a
regular (non-eclipse) sunny day.
More to the point:
when I look up at the sun with my cardboard glasses, there is no direct sunlight getting in my eyes through the sides.
And yeah -- ISO 12312-2 cardboard eclipse glasses provide more sun protection (e.g., allow in less light) than your #10 welding goggles. You need #14
goggles to do the same job as the cardboard glasses manufactured to ISO 12312-2 standards. Maybe you should have listened to "them" and used either
#14 goggles or the ISO 12312-2 cardboard glasses...
...or maybe you should have done some better research on your own about what type of glasses are safe. You would have had less of an issue and less
risk of eye damage.
