Dr. Strube demonstrates how to wear protective eclipse glasses.

We're gearing up for a once-in-a-lifetime event: a total solar eclipse right in our backyard on April 8. But with this amazing event quickly approaching, now is the best time to learn how to protect our eyes. That's why we're thrilled to share this informative video featuring Dr. Yi Ning Strube, an Ophthalmologist here at Kingston Health Sciences Centre.

As the first total solar eclipse in Kingston in 700 years, it's a spectacle we won't soon forget. But let's ensure we enjoy it safely! Remember, looking directly at the sun during an eclipse can cause serious eye damage. So, before you gear up for viewing, take a moment to educate yourself with help from Dr. Strube's invaluable tips.
