Solar eclipse is a spectacular cosmic phenomenon, which is rare, so we are all looking forward to this moment. In order to be able to fully enjoy this special event, it is good to be prepared to let us know that what should be a reason for delight does not turn into a cause of inconvenience.
During a sunny day, we can not look directly at the sun. The extremely bright light of the sun makes us move our eyes in another direction, thus preventing its radiation (ultraviolet and infrared) from affecting our eyes. At the same time, another protective mechanism that acts on strong light is the pupil’s dimming, acting as a diaphragm regulating the amount of rays that penetrate inside the eyes.
