How is the eye doing?

So, it seems like my eye is fine...I might have just caught a glancing blow. I do remember watching the plastic lense melt while looking at the sun, but I must have turned away in time to save my eye. Thanks for your concern

They would. Just not when looking through something that magnifies

When I was looking for ways to watch the eclipse every site said if using binoculars or a scope, don't keep your solar glasses on.

Btw glad OP is ok

And in related news...


A health professional in California reported cases where eclipse-viewers sought medical treatment because they put sunscreen on their eyeballs to view last week’s solar eclipse.

KRCTV.com reported that these individuals applied the sunscreen because they did not have the NASA-approved eyewear.
