Willamette ENT & River Road Surgery Center purchased solar eclipse glasses to share with our patients. This was prior to the announcement from NASA disclosing the approved certification specifications. Additionally, various media channels have announced that unsafe glasses were being distributed.
Since the announcements, we have been diligently attempting to verify that the glasses we purchased meet the correct specifications.
Even though our supplier, Bob Elenowitz, CEO of Lincoln Line, personally affirms the safety of these glasses, we are not able to conclusively determine that the glasses will in fact be safe during the viewing of the eclipse. We recommend that you do not use the Willamette ENT or River Road Surgery glasses to view the solar eclipse and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please destroy these glasses and replace them with the properly certified glasses. They should be certified ISO 12312-2 for solar viewers.
