Solar Eclipse Eye Protection

Imagine this: the next solar eclipse is coming, and you’re right in the path of totality. You desperately want to watch the partial eclipse slip into the beautiful “diamond ring” effect that is so often talked about. However, if you opt to skip proper solar eclipse eye protection, you could cause permanent damage to your retinas in a few short seconds. What’s the best way to ensure that you’re protected?

It is critical that you wear solar eclipse eye protection shades that are CE Certified and meet the standard for ISO 12312-2:2015 for absolutely safe viewing. The reason this is the only viable option is that proper eye protection will filter enough light from your view to keep your eyes protected.

Before you make your purchase, however, you need to make sure you’re buying from a retailer you can trust. In fact, so many people unwittingly purchased eclipse eyewear from unreputable sources in 2017 that NASA had to announce a list of recommended eyewear vendors compiled by the American Astronomical Society. In case you were wondering, Rainbow Symphony was on that list!

Why can you trust Rainbow Symphony? Because we’ve been selling quality eclipse eye protection at affordable prices for over 40 years. If you’re not sure what to choose for your next eclipse experience, let us explore a few of our best sellers with you.

Wrap Around Eclipse Shades®

Although paper glasses are sufficient for safe eclipse viewing, these wrap around goggles are the epitome of comfort and style. Their wide shield is not simply for good looks; the design ensures that you’ll have a safe viewing experience from any angle. The tight design also ensures that no ambient light will leak in, making your eclipse viewing experience even more vivid.

Solar Viewer featuring #14 Welders Glass

A solar viewer offers solar eclipse eye protection without using glasses, as you hold a solar viewer in front of your face like a shield. A generous eight square inch aperture allows for a wide viewing angle. The #14 welders glass used in the viewer ensures that your eyes are protected. Those that wear eyeglasses usually prefer solar viewers, as they allow for a more comfortable experience since they are able to keep their glasses on as they watch the eclipse.
