People Say They Stared At The Eclipse And Hurt Their Eyes And Now They Are Losing It

"So after reading tons of advice about how i shouldn’t look at the sun even through dark ass glasses, i looked at the sun."

However, it wasn't that cool for people online, who despite near CONSTANT warnings to not look directly at the sun, claimed they did so anyway.

So as it turns out...I probably shoulda bought the glasses, can barely see the eclipse and now my eye balls hurt.
