The Department of Ophthalmology is presenting a Grand Rounds on the topic of eye health relating to the forthcoming total solar eclipse passing through Kingston on the 8th of April.

We will be discussing the potential dangers to the eyes that this cosmic event can pose. Among the risks of failing to wear appropriate protective eyewear is a condition called solar retinopathy (or, coincidentally, "eclipse retinopathy")—a potentially blinding, irreversible injury.

Please join us for an interactive discussion of how we can promote eye safety during this rare event.
