Got Eclipse Glasses?


The solar eclipse is coming, and there’s nothing we can do to stop it. The best way to prepare? Pick up a pair of the hottest shades of the spring: solar eclipse glasses.

And no, you can’t just use your sunglasses that you’ve had since 2017.

Sun exposure can cause severe eye damage, especially during the partial eclipse when the sun will still be visible.

The glasses are extremely filtered and make it very difficult for UV to pass through which is the perfect way to shield your eyes.

We sent reporter Dakota Bruton around Brown County to take photos of community members perfecting their eclipse glasses technique.

Whether you are out and about, stuck in the office, hiding out in the woods or on the side of the road, eye protection is crucial for safely watching the eclipse.

Robyn Gaffney the library assistant told the Democrat that the library is handing out free eclipse glasses to all who want them with the show of their library card. She said that they have a large inventory and encourage people to pick up glasses before the day of the eclipse.
