Q.

Eye damage from eclipse.

I taped together 5 pairs of sunglasses (basically all black if you looked at the interior of the house) and looked at the eclipse for a combined amount of a minute or so - so far only a bit of floating stuff that you get every once in a while and dry eyes - should I go see a doctor or is this nothing to worry too much about?

Hi there

If there is any sudden changes in your eye sight after viewing an eclipse, it would be safest to see your optometrist.

Best wishes!
