Do You Have Real Or Fake Eclipse Glasses?

News

If you don’t need to be at work, you can head out to Good Earth State Park.  

The park manager even ordered 40 eclipse viewing glasses from Amazon.  

But Amazon notified the park that the glasses were not verified, so they were thrown away.  

Instead, the park will use the old fashioned pin-hole method of helping people view the eclipse.  

Those fake glasses sold on Amazon have been a real problem all across the country.  

Here’s how to tell if eclipse glasses are “Real or Fake:”  

“Using both eyes, I don`t have a problem with it at all. Just using the right eye like I say looking at small print or something close up small it distorts it,” James Holt said. 

Back in the 1960’s then 10-year-old Holt injured his eyes by looking at a solar eclipse incorrectly. 

Fake glasses have been spotted across the internet and if they’re not the right ones, you could easily hurt your eyes. Amazon is issuing refunds to customers who may have purchased phony solar eclipse glasses.

The company’s also removed a few listings on its website.

These aren’t your traditional sunglasses. All you should be able to see is the sun and nothing else. 

So here’s how to spot if your eclipse glasses are real or fake. 

First try them on and make sure you only see the sun. 

Then, make sure there’s an ISO logo and number like this one. 

Also – look for glasses that clearly display the manufacturer’s name.
