DAYTON, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) - If you've bought a pair of eclipse glasses from Wegerzyn Gift and Garden Shop, it is recommended that you do not wear them to watch the eclipse.

The producer of the glasses has not officially confirmed that they were labelled by the NASA and the American Astronomical Society as safe to view the event. Watching the sun or the eclipse without proper protective glasses or filters could result in loss of vision or permanent blindness.

If you purchased a pair from the gift shop, you can return them for a full refund.

For more information, you can reach out to the Wegerzyn Gift and Garden Shop.
