ISO Compliant & CE Certified for Direct Solar Viewing
Our Solar Shield is designed to protect your eyes from harmful solar radiation, so you can indulge in your curiosity without jeopardizing your health and wellness. Each Solar Shield in our inventory is “CE” Certified and meets the standard for ISO 12312-2:2015.
The lens itself is made from our exclusive scratch-resistant, grade 5 optical density “Black Polymer” material, which filters out 100% of harmful ultraviolet light and infrared light, and 99.999% of intense visible light. The lens is mounted in a sturdy, laminated board holder that measures 8.5” x 5.5”, with a 2” x 4” aperture. As a safety precaution, each solar viewer is printed with valuable eclipse information on the backside (in English translation only - other languages can be produced upon request).
View a Wide Range of Solar Events
Our safe eclipse viewing Solar Shield is an affordable and convenient way to safely observe and study a wide range of solar events, including annular eclipses, partial eclipses, sunspots, and planetary transits. When used in the field, our premium filter transmits a crisp, light orange image of the sun that’s both appealing and easy to focus on.

If you wear eyeglasses, then a carded viewer is the only way to go. Simple and sturdy: Just hold the card's view-slot in front of your glasses then tilt your head towards the sun. Even if not an eyeglasses wearer, and unlike any cardboard "eclipse eyeglasses" spectacles, a carded viewer affords fast removal from the face when unobstructed eyesight is needed again for the surrounding ground, AFTER first tilting your head again to Mother Earth before removal.
A carded viewer also provides full peripheral protection of the eye sockets. The filter media's surrounding hunk of framing pasteboard acts as a big, solid, solar blocker on the periphery. Broad, uncomplicated, and unmistakable protection.
On any eclipse viewer, the seemingly opaque filter material only allows the Sun's image to pass. All other "ground viewing" is blocked. The Sun is one incredibly powerful light source!
Anticipating the next eclipse, I have my carded viewer stored in a standard bubble-wrap manilla envelope and tucked away in a darkened drawer. A nice little investment for now and in the future.
