Dookie Cares About Your Health; Your Eye Health
posted August 17, 2017
We’ve been taught since little youngsters not to stare at the sun, yet that’s what millions of people are gathering to do Monday the 21st with their closest friends and family. The Great American Total Solar Eclipse is here, and we’re not telling you not to watch it. But, just like squatting is the healthier way to poop, there’s a healthier and safer way to watch the eclipse.
It’s no joke that without the proper eye protection, the eclipse can permanently damage your eyes. Enough so, that optometrists are claiming that looking at the eclipse without proper eye protection would harm your eyes “like a magnifying glass on a leaf”. For the record, sunglasses do not count as proper eye protection. You want to be able to actually see what all the oooh’s and ahh’s are all about, don’t ya?
So, what’s all the hype? For the first time in 99 years, a solar eclipse will cross the entire continental United States, its path of totality, from Oregon to South Carolina, approximately 70 miles wide. A partial eclipse will be visible elsewhere. This event will be almost as exciting as when you rest your feet on your brand spankin’ new Squatty Potty for the first time.
So- sit back, throw on your eclipse glasses, eat your rainbow unicorn ice cream, and enjoy the show.
