When I was like 5, or 6, I looked at the eclipse without glasses. I actually looked at the sun a couple of times more without glasses, directly around that age. I'm 32 now, everyone around me uses glasses, my eyesight is still 20/20. Idk, maybe I was too young to be affected? Maybe my memory is failing me and I actually just imagined the whole thing and didn't actually see anything?...

Why is it harmful for eyes?

Because long exposure to ultraviolet rays may blind you.

Usually the Sun is so shiny you cannot stare at it for more then couple of seconds, while during eclipse light intensity is so low you can watch the Sun much longer.

Someone told me that lunar eclipse can only occur on 13,14,15 lunar dates and solar eclipse can only occur on 27,28,29 lunar dates. Is this information true?
