"When you partially obscure the sun with the moon, it's not so bright, and it's not so painful to actually look at it", Dr. G. Baker Hubbard of the Emory Eye Center in Atlanta told FOX5.
Louis Tomososki gazed up with the naked eye at a 1963 partial eclipse for just 20 seconds. Tomososki stressed in an interview with KPTV, an NBC affiliate, that it didn't take long for damage to set in.
"I am just so concerned that somebody isn't going to listen", he said.
"Every time we go to an eye doctor now for an exam, they dilate your eyes and look in there, the first thing they say is, you looked at a solar eclipse sometime in your life", Tomasoski said.
"It doesn't get any worse and it doesn't get any better", he said. "But, even though it's not painful, those harmful rays are still getting in your eyes and focused right onto the center of your retina, and that's where it does the damage".
The damage occurs in the fovea, a spot in the retina that is responsible for sharp, central vision.
"There's no sign", he told InsideEdition.com. As a result, patients with solar retinopathy may have blurry vision or a central blind point in their eyes, according to the AAO.

People with the condition show a characteristic pattern of eye damage during eye exams. "It looks like someone took a hole punch and just punched out the photoreceptive cells in the retina", Van Gelder said.
