To make sure your eclipse glasses are safe, check to see if they meet the ISO 12312-2 certification. According to the American Optometric Association, only glasses that meet this standard should be used when viewing the solar eclipse. Sunglasses are not enough.

Your glasses should have the ISO certification written on the arm. It may also appear as “ISO 12312-2:2015.” If you cannot find this certification, the eclipse glasses are not legitimate and will not properly protect your eyes.
