Did the solar eclipse damage your eyes? Here's how to tell

Across the country, Americans headed outdoors on August 21 to watch The Great American Eclipse, a rare celestial show in which the moon appeared to slide across the face of the sun.
You should visit an ophthalmologist who will take a scan of the eye to see the extent of any damage, and who will inform you if there is a solar burn or something else, he said. The symptoms - blind spots and blurriness - become apparent in the following hours.
He looked at it for just 20 seconds, he estimates. Business Insider reports that discomfort could be due to the rapidly changing light levels you experienced as you covered and uncovered your eyes repeatedly to view the eclipse.
Unfortunately, there are no known treatments for solar retinopathy, Edmond said. But if you look at the partial eclipse, the portion of the sun that is visible can cause permanent damage to your eyes. The damage can be temporary or permanent and occurs with no pain.
Though the searches for "eyes hurt" skyrocketed nearly immediately after the eclipse, there are actually no immediate symptoms associated with damage to the retina, which doesn't have pain receptors, ophthalmologists say.
So what if you made the same mistake as Trump and looked up with your unprotected eyes?
Area hospitals said they have not received any patients as of Tuesday afternoon complaining of eye damage after Monday's eclipse.
If your eyes do get burned, Buehler said, "Potentially you wouldn't be able to read or drive very well".
For those who witnessed the Great American Eclipse on Monday and are wondering whether they could have developed vision issues, here are a few things to know about post-eclipse eye health. However for some watchers, questions over eclipse glasses, and their own vision remain.
While watchers were wearing their viewing glasses while watching yesterday's Great Eclipse, some were still anxious about their vision afterwards.
Doctor Matt Weed with the Spokane Eye clinic said if you damaged your eyes from looking at the eclipse, you would notice it right away. If you didn't wear proper protection, other possible signs of damage include blurry vision, light sensitivity, or spots or "holes" in your vision.
"Staring at the sun normally is bad whether an eclipse is going on or not", Orge said.
