Eye experts urge caution during eclipse

VALE — Remember the childhood adage not to stare into the sun?
The motto seems common sense but people – for whatever reason – occasionally disregard the maxim.
Those who do so during Monday’s eclipse face more than breaking a basic rule.
Two local optometrists urged residents to be extremely careful when viewing the historic event next week.
Why? Because the same thing that can happen to your eyes when you stare directly at the sun can occur if you look at the eclipse, even when it appears the sun is mostly obscured.
