(KNOE 8 News) - Dr. Jonathan Scgins says looking at the solar eclipse without protective glasses can cause permanent damage.
He says it's the same idea as using the sun to burn an ant with a magnifying glass.
That same concept is what happen's to the retina in the back of the eye.
Scogin says once the damage is done, it can't be reversed.
Doctor Scogin says looking through camera's, telescopes and binoculars are also unsafe.
