Gard Ferguson wants to warn everyone: it can happen to you, and it can happen to your children. Ferguson is a Worland EMT and ambulance volunteer. He suffered permanent partial blindness when he glanced at an eclipse in the early 60s. Ferguson's optometrist Carl Cottrell says his condition is called Solar Maculopathy. The effect is similar to macular degeneration. The UV rays can burn the retina and cause cells to never grow back.
