Do your solar eclipse glasses meet ISO standards? Viewing the solar eclipse without proper protective eye wear can cause permanent damage to your eyes. Amazon has issued refunds for counterfeit solar eclipse glasses citing concerns about consumer safety. Amazon said that it made the decision out of an abundance of caution.
“Safety is among our highest priorities. Out of an abundance of caution, we have proactively reached out to customers and provided refunds for eclipse glasses that may not comply with industry standards. We want customers to buy with confidence anytime they make a purchase on Amazon.com and eclipse glasses sold on Amazon.com are required to comply with the relevant ISO standard”
