UofL warns about eclipse glasses sold by student group Thursday, Aug. 17

UofL students, faculty and staff who purchased eclipse viewing glasses from the Society of Physics Students should be aware that UofL cannot guarantee some of the glasses sold meet ISO safety standards. Additionally, the company supplying them is not on the list of companies cited by the American Astronomical Society. The glasses in question, pictured below, are printed with an American flag pattern (red and white stripes on the front of the glasses) and have a three-line disclaimer written on the inside of one of the arms. In an abundance of caution, the university warns that these glasses may not be effective in protecting your eyes. Call the Society of Physics Students at (502) 296-2378 for information on obtaining a refund.
