“Appalachian Wireless wanted to take part in the excitement of the eclipse and help people enjoy this rare experience,” said Ashley Litteral, Marketing Manager of Appalachian Wireless. “Our vendor initially led us to believe that the glasses were certified for solar eclipse viewing. As we learned more about the safety risks and asked for proof of compliance, the manufacturer could not provide it.”
Viewing the eclipse or the sun without the appropriate eye protection can result in loss of vision or permanent blindness. Your vision and your family’s vision is too important to take any chances. Again, Appalachian Wireless recommends that you DO NOT USE the free glasses that were distributed at its retail stores.
