But bombard them with too much light at once, and you can actually damage the cells and proteins that help them process light.

Since your retina has no pain receptors, the damage won't hurt, but it will leave that blurry splotch on your vision. Now, you're doing more than just overloading your retina.

For starters, you're giving your eyes an abnormally high dose of UV radiation the same stuff that causes sunburns. Like your skin, the cornea at the front of your eye can also burn. And that will hurt. The cornea protects the rest of your eye and is therefore covered in pain receptors that alert you whenever a pesky eyelash is on the loose.

But UV radiation isn't the only issue. Too much visible light can penetrate your eye and damage the retinal tissue, which causes a condition called solar retinitis.

The benefits of looking directly at the sun might outweigh the costs.

This means parts of your retina can no longer process light normally, so you can end up with entire chunks of your vision blurred out. Depending on the extent of the damage, recovery can take weeks, months, and in severe cases over a year. But in rare cases, the damage is so extreme it never heals, leading to a rare condition called solar retinopathy. This usually only shows up in reckless eclipse gazers.

Staring at the Sun

Turns out, during a solar eclipse, most of the sun's light is blocked, which actually can trick your brain into thinking it's safe to stare. Normally, our bodies have a built-in defense mechanism against staring at the sun. Specifically, when we squint we look up, which minimizes the amount of light coming in and protects our cornea and retina.

But during a solar eclipse, the sun doesn't appear bright enough to trigger our defense mechanisms so we can end up staring for longer than is safe.

Suffice it to say, there's nothing good about staring at the sun. So do your eyes a favor and avoid looking at it. After all, there are around 6, stars in the night sky you can safely observe for as long as you wish. World globe An icon of the world globe, indicating different international options.
