For immediate release:
VisionFirst Eye Center like many others was led to believe that our glasses were ISO approved. However, our distributor released a statement this weekend stating that because they did not do their own independent testing, they are recommending that customers not view the eclipse with these glasses. In turn, out of good conscience, we are also asking that anyone who received eclipse glasses from VisionFirst Eye Center not use them to view the eclipse. We will continue to have our viewing party on Monday but will provide alternative viewing methods.
We would also like to add that due to the inability to verify authenticity of all of the eclipse glasses, and out of an abundance of caution and concern for public health, we recommend that no one look through the eclipse glasses for more than seconds at a time in order to avoid eye injury, regardless of the source of your glasses.
