    How will ophthalmologists watch the eclipse?


    Even the partial eclipse is worth watching

    “I am not traveling to see totality," said Joel S. Schuman, MD, FACS.

    "I will have to make do with the partial eclipse I can see in NYC," said Dr. Schuman, professor and chairman, Department of Ophthalmology, NYU Langone Medical Center, NY, and a member of the Ophthalmology Times Editorial Advisory Board.

    "I will wear eclipse glasses that meet the safety standard ISO 12312-2," he said. "If I were in the band of totality, I could look at the sun when fully covered by the disc of the moon, with only the corona visible, without safety glasses, but as soon as the diamond ring appears, I would have to put the safety glasses back on."
