Amazon gives refunds to customers

who bought counterfeit solar eclipse glasses

August 14, 2017

Preparing for the solar eclipse on Monday morning? It starts with having the right eye protection.

Unfortunately there are counterfeits out there and the folks at Amazon are removing any potential counterfeit glasses on their site and issuing refunds to those who've already bought them from Amazon.

From now on third party sellers have to provide proper documentation to insure their eye wear is "compliant with relevant standards"  Those who are able to provide the proper documentation will stay on the site.
