Eye Institutes Shine During Total Eclipse

MWU PR Eclipse Glasses

The Midwestern University Eye Institutes in Downers Grove and Glendale were busy during this summer’s total solar eclipse. The two facilities received a huge influx of new interest from members of the community – helped along by complimentary eclipse safety glasses distributed by the helpful faculty, students, and staff. Media interest helped put the University squarely in the news cycle, with TV and radio networks asking for interviews about how to prepare for the eclipse, the effects of solar retinopathy, and how people who may have exposed their eyes to sun damage could adapt afterward.
