But according to Dr.Raymond J. Clifford, an ophthalmologist at Peninsula Eye Center in Salisbury, looking at Monday's eclipse won't make you uncomfortable, and that's where the danger lies.
Only at locations within the 70-mile swath can the eclipse be viewed, during its totality, with the naked eye.
"You can burn out your camera in the cell phone just like your retina", he said.
While his vision problem hasn't held him back, Tomososki wishes he would have known better than to look directly at a partially eclipsed sun. Though they only looked at it for a few moments, the damage that Tomososki's eyes suffered as a result of that decision was permanent.
The good new is, the certified eclipse glasses are fairly cheap. "He got the left eye and I got the right eye".
Suh, who also is an associate professor at the Truhlsen Eye Institute's department of ophthalmology and visual sciences and department of pediatrics at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, said solar retinopathy occurs when harmful radiation from the sun reaches the eye.

Indeed, Tomososki said his doctors can often tell that he once looked directly at the sun.
People with solar retinopathy show a very characteristic pattern of eye damage during an exam. However, with the solar eclipse, even when the sunlight is reduced by the moon, infrared and UV rays can still cause severe damage to the retina. "Unfortunately there's not a treatment for it, so once that damage is done you have to wait and hopefully things improve and your body can heal some, but a lot of damage can be permanent".

As for Tomososki, he says he's excited about the upcoming eclipse on August 21, but this time, he's not going to be looking at the sky.
If you'll watch the eclipse outside the path of totality -which is about 70 miles wide and goes from OR to South Carolina-is necessary to use protection at all times.
"We both got burned at the same time", Tomososki told TODAY. "The second the sun comes out, the eclipse glasses have to go back on".
