Safety First: Local Teachers Discuss the Importance of Protecting Your Eyes During the Total Solar Eclipse

The total solar eclipse, an event that occurs once in a lifetime, is approaching. We spoke with local teachers to hear their thoughts on this unique occurrence. Mr. Kyle Rose, a Science Instructor at Ohio Hi-Point Career Center, explained that during a total solar eclipse, the moon passes between the sun and Earth, completely covering the sun and casting a shadow on our planet for a brief period of time.

Mrs. Leslie Bradley, a Biology Teacher at Ohio Hi-Point Career Center, emphasized the importance of protecting your eyes when viewing the eclipse. She explained that looking directly at the sun can cause damage to the retina in the back of the eye, which is responsible for sending signals to the brain to interpret what we see. Even though it may seem counterintuitive that looking at something being covered would be dangerous, it is important to prioritize safety and use protective glasses when observing this phenomenon.

The total solar eclipse presents an opportunity for individuals to experience something truly remarkable while also learning about science and nature in general. As long as proper safety guidelines are followed and precautions are taken, it can be an unforgettable experience that will never be forgotten.
