In almost all the Ophthalmology books and perhaps most of the ophthalmologist agree that solar eclipse causes damage to the macula and may cause permanent visual loss if sun is seen for a long time.

In our observation, we have found that, at the day of solar eclipse, people are very excited and curious to see the eclipse.

As we know that cosmology tells us that in solar eclipse, moon comes in front of the sun. And from earth we can easily stair at the sun, which is not possible in normal days.

Damage to macula happens by UV rays emitting from the sun.
