Frequently Asked Questions

What are eclipse glasses, and why do I need them?

Eclipse glasses are specially designed eyewear that allows you to safely view solar eclipses, protecting your eyes from harmful solar radiation. Looking directly at the sun, even during an eclipse, can cause permanent eye damage, so it's essential to use proper eye protection like eclipse glasses.

Are your eclipse glasses safe to use?

Absolutely. Our eclipse glasses meet the rigorous safety standards set by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO 12312-2:2015), ensuring they provide adequate eye protection during solar events. We prioritize safety above all else and conduct thorough testing to guarantee the quality and effectiveness of our glasses.

Can I reuse eclipse glasses?

While eclipse glasses are designed for single-use during each eclipse event, they can be reused if they remain undamaged and meet safety standards. However, it's crucial to inspect your glasses for any signs of wear or damage before each use. If you notice any scratches, holes, or other defects, it's best to replace them with a new pair to ensure your eye safety.

Can I wear regular sunglasses instead of eclipse glasses?

No. Regular sunglasses are not suitable for viewing solar eclipses as they do not offer sufficient protection against the intense sunlight and harmful ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) radiation emitted by the sun. Only eclipse glasses specifically designed for solar viewing should be used to safeguard your eyes during eclipses.

How do I know when to use my eclipse glasses during an eclipse event?

You should wear your eclipse glasses whenever any part of the sun is visible during a solar eclipse, including the partial phases leading up to totality (if applicable). It's crucial to keep your eyes protected at all times while viewing the sun directly, as even a small portion of the sun's surface can cause eye damage if viewed without proper protection.

How do I properly dispose of eclipse glasses after use?

Once you've finished using your eclipse glasses, it's essential to dispose of them properly. If your glasses are still in good condition and meet safety standards, you can save them for future use or donate them to educational programs or organizations. However, if your glasses are damaged or expired, they should be discarded in accordance with local waste disposal guidelines.

Do you offer bulk discounts for large orders?

Yes, we offer bulk discounts for orders of eclipse glasses in larger quantities. Whether you want to experience this amazing event with your loved ones, pals, fellows, or neighbors, our ISO eclipse glasses will let you do just that. Ideal for small groups or large
crowds, our sunglasses for solar eclipse are available in various pack sizes: 6-pack, 12-pack, 25-pack, 50-pack, and 100-pack.

Can I take photos or videos through eclipse glasses?

It's not recommended to attempt to take photos or videos through eclipse glasses, as this can potentially damage both your camera equipment and your eyes. Instead, use a dedicated solar filter for your camera or smartphone to capture stunning images of the eclipse safely.

Can I use eclipse glasses for other celestial events, such as viewing sunspots or transits of planets?

While eclipse glasses are primarily designed for safely viewing solar eclipses, they can also be used to observe other solar phenomena like sunspots or transits of planets across the sun's disk. However, it's essential to remember that eclipse glasses are not suitable for observing any other celestial objects, such as stars, planets, or lunar eclipses. For observing these events, we recommend using appropriate telescopes or binoculars equipped with solar filters.

How do I know if my eclipse glasses are genuine and meet safety standards?

To ensure the authenticity and safety of your eclipse glasses, always purchase them from reputable vendors like EclipSee, we provide CERTIFICATION confirming compliance with ISO 12312-2:2015 standards. Avoid purchasing eclipse glasses from unknown or uncertified sources, as they may not offer adequate protection for your eyes.

Can children use eclipse glasses safely?

Yes, children can safely use eclipse glasses under adult supervision. However, it's crucial to ensure that the glasses fit properly and remain securely in place during use to prevent any accidental exposure to the sun's harmful rays. We recommend educating children about the importance of wearing eclipse glasses correctly and monitoring them closely while viewing solar events to ensure their safety at all times.
