About Thousand Oak's Solar Film Used in These Glasses

BLACK POLYMER: Exclusive Thousand Oaks Optical formula developed solely for SAFE solar observation. Unlike metallized Mylar (commonly used in food packaging), this polymer film gives a SHARP pleasing orange image versus unnatural pale blue. Mylar also reflects your eyes in the mirror like surface making it difficult to see the sun. And contrary to claims by some manufacturers, two layers does not guarantee no pinholes in the coatings. Simply hold a Mylar viewer at arms length, close to a light bulb, to see this defect. The protective properties of this Black Polymer are throughout the substrate so there is never a concern about safety.

Warning

Never look at the sun without special eye protection. When viewing the eclipse, use this viewer at all times when any part of the sun is visible. For direct, unmagnified viewing only. Do not look into an unfiltered telescope with this viewer.
