Eclipse eye health worries -What you need to know

"Less than a few seconds, it is highly unlikely there is going to be much damage", he said.

"If they did stare at the sun for a long time it may be worth getting an exam just to make sure there's nothing wrong that they can't tell you about", said Williams.

Research also suggests that while a lot of the damage may heal, some may be permanent. If you looked at the sun during the eclipse with your naked eye, you might suffer from some of these conditions.

Though the searches for "eyes hurt" skyrocketed nearly immediately after the eclipse, there are actually no immediate symptoms associated with damage to the retina, which doesn't have pain receptors, ophthalmologists say.

Another symptom is distortion - in which a straight line looks bent, or a door jamb looks curvy, Emerson said. It is important to note there can be a delayed response to any damage incurred during an eclipse, with symptoms showing up hours later. It's like a sheet of graph paper.

An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor trained to check your eyes for injury or disease, and as such, they are the best equipped to investigate if you caused any damage to your eyes during the eclipse.

"Generally, you want to look for graying of vision, blurring of vision", Lane said.


The American Optometric Association said millions of people from OR to SC are facing the danger of eye damage when the moon covers part of the sun for 2 to 3 hours.

Solar retinopathy can be caused by staring at the sun (regardless of its phase), but few people can stand to look directly at our nearest star for very long without pain.

According to PreventBlindness.com, "eclipse blindness, or retinal burns, [is] also known as solar retinopathy".

"So we anticipate seeing quite a bit of solar damage from patients who thought they could take a quick sneak peek".

"I had a patient who was a lumberjack who got solar retinopathy", Emerson said.

So, all you concerned eclipse watchers with eye pain?

Immediately after the eclipse, Google saw a huge increase in the number of times people searched the words "my eyes hurt".
