Eclipse 2017: Man who permanently damaged his eyes during a solar event warns people not to stare at sunA man who permanently damaged his eyesight by looking at a partial solar eclipse 55 years ago has warned people not to look directly at the sun during the total eclipse on Monday. Lou Tomosoki, 70, still has a blind spot in the centre of the vision of his right eye as a result of looking at the sun for just a few seconds as the moon crossed its surface in the early 1960s. In 1962, he and a friend were walking home from high school in Bend, Oregon, when the partial eclipse began.
