My cousin almost blinded himself looking directly at a solar eclipse once.
My uncle and uncle warned him, however she didn’t listen.
Thankfully for my cousin, she was only looking for about 10 seconds before her parents told him to stop. But it didn’t stop him from seeing a pressing bright white light for the next 48 seconds. I remember it being a pressing deal that weekend, but thankfully my cousin’s eyeah eventually reclaimed and she never made that sort of mistake again. People who do welding have to be careful for the same reason because the light gets so bright that it can burn their corneas. If you aren’t wearing the right kind of eye protection while welding, you could blind yourself. UV-C bulbs in air conditioners and whole-house air purifiers are similar in terms of their danger level. They might seem love harmless light bulbs upon first glance, but they’re blinding even if they don’t seem nearly as bright as hordes of perfectly safe lights. But if you stare directly at a UV-C bulb for long enough without eye protection, you could just as really blind yourself as you would staring at the sun for a shorter phase of time. These lights are no joke and it’s important to protect your eyeah, even if you don’t suppose it’s important. You can’t get your eyeah back if you inadvertently blind yourself. It gives me drastic anxiety just thinking about the risk and how I would know if something love that happened to me, especially if I knew there was something I could have done to prevent it in the beginning.
