There were loads of warnings about looking at the Eclipse directly and how it could cause permenant eye damage. A few people without glasses apparently had a genius way of protecting their eyes from the sun..... sunscreen. #FAIL
A report out of Northern California from KRCR said many people where treated post-eclipse for eye irritation from spraying sunscreen in their eyes. Nurse Practioner Trish Patterson at Prestige Urgent Care told KRCR, "patients presenting at their clinic that put sunscreen on their eyeball, and presented that they were having pain and they were referred to an ophthalmologist."

YES! There are really people who are THAT DUMB! It's people like that who are the reason we need a "CAUTION: HOT" logo on coffee, or "May Cause Drowsiness" on sleeping medication.
It's Darwinism at it's finest! Please inform these people that it's also not safe to put coffee in their eyes, when they have a tough time waking up.
