windscar Posted January 23, 2012 Report Share Posted January 23, 2012 A few days ago I acidentally stared the sun briefly on a beach. A little sunmark burned into my eye, appearing everytime I blink. My eyes got red like this image for the rest of the day. Now, 4 days has passed and I still see the sunburn each time I blink. It's on my left eye. Reading this site they gave a very accurate description of my symptons and mentioned psychedelics: A person is at a great risk when he or she stares directly at the sun with no eye protection whatsoever. This can damage or even destroy the cells in the central retina of the eye, which can lead to vision impairment. Some may eventually recover their vision, but there are many unlucky ones who go blind after this. This condition is common in people who are viewing solar eclipses, as well as people who stare at the sun under the influence of psychedelic drugs. So I'd like to: 1) Warn you guys to be very careful with this. It makes sense that HPPDers could be more sensitive to sunburns and it's a serious condition. 2) Ask if anyone relates to this.
