Amazon is giving refunds to people who bought counterfeit, potentially shoddy solar eclipse glasses.
It’s pretty obvious that “let the buyer beware” holds true when it comes to buying appropriate glasses for seeing the August 21 solar eclipse. The wrong ones will blind you. That’s why the online retail giant is contacting shoppers who bought glasses that Amazon says "may not comply with industry standards."
The company went on to say that “Out of an abundance of caution, we have proactively reached out to customers and provided refunds for eclipse glasses that may not comply with industry standards. We want customers to buy with confidence anytime they make a purchase.”
You can always check NASA’s verified list of safe eclipse viewing glasses and then stop by Amazon.
