It’s extremely important to be aware that you should never look at the sun directly without adequate solar protection. Staring at the sun without the proper protection can cause serious eye damage and have a long-term impact on your eyesight. That’s why it’s so important to opt for eclipse glasses or filters that come with an adequate ISO certification and are made by an AAS-approved manufacturer. 

Featuring non-scratch, premium lenses, these glasses offer vivid clarity of the sun without compromising eye safety, allowing you to view the eclipse clearly and without distortion.

Made to be suitable for every user, the MedOptics eclipse glasses come with adjustable crease lines, allowing them to be used comfortably by eclipse viewers of every age.

Key Specs: ISO 12312-2:2015 certified, scratch-resistant lenses, AAS-approved manufacturer, 50% discount, and arrival before April 8.

Consensus: We think that this is a great deal as it means you get five pairs of solar safe glasses for under $5.

Buy if: You want to safely view the solar eclipse and want to buy solar glasses that will suit the whole family.

Don’t buy if: You only need one pair of viewing glasses or would rather view the eclipse with specialist equipment.
