Why do you need special glasses to view the sun?

You can damage your eyes by simply looking up at a solar eclipse. You must wear special eclipse glasses to look at a solar eclipse. The American Optometric Association suggests using a handheld solar viewer, special-purpose solar filters, or other ISO-certified filters if you plan to view a solar eclipse for even a short period of time.
