Why Buy Eclipse Glasses Now
If you keep hearing about eclipse glasses and you are planning on watching one of the upcoming solar eclipses, you may be wondering if you should buy a pair. Yes, you should and, in fact, you should buy a pair or several pairs of Eclipse Glasses now. Here are just a few reasons why.
Eclipse glasses sell out before an eclipse -- If you decide to buy a pair of eclipse glasses right before an eclipse, you will be extremely lucky if you can even find a pair. Many sellers who carry eclipse glasses always say they sell out several weeks before the next solar eclipse, even if they order in a higher amount of stock.
You should not look at an eclipse without them -- While some people seem to think they can look at a solar eclipse for just a few seconds without wearing eclipse glasses, that is not true at all. In fact, looking at an eclipse for just a few seconds can damage your eyes. Looking at one longer can actually cause you to go blind -- temporarily or permanently.
That is why, if you think there is any chance you may end up looking at the sun when it is in solar eclipse, you should buy eclipse glasses now.
Get the best selection -- Do not wait until a few days before an eclipse, if you want to have the best selection. Glasses sell so fast several weeks before an eclipse, by the time you decide to buy a pair you will only have a limited selection left.
