Will vision come back after damage from looking at the sun during a solar eclipse?

admin Pepose Info

The solar eclipse will be visible in our area on August 21st. Please be careful and use the proper eye protection.

A solar burn from an eclipse damages the very center of vision. Initially, there is a blurry or dark spot in the center of the vision and the vision may be distorted. In most patients, the vision will improve to some degree from the worst level over a period of weeks to months, but often there is some permanent loss of vision. Unfortunately, there is no treatment for this permanent loss of vision. It is important to never look directly into the sun particularly during an eclipse.
