Select the option above to include a Shade #14 lens and have the coolest Solar Eclipse viewing goggles in the neighborhood. See excerpt from NASA below:
"Viewing with Protection -- Experts suggest that one widely available filter for safe solar viewing is number 14 welder's glass. It is imperative that the welding hood houses a #14 or darker filter. Do not view through any welding glass if you do not know or cannot discern its shade number. Be advised that arc welders typically use glass with a shade much less than the necessary #14. A welding glass that permits you to see the landscape is not safe. Inexpensive eclipse glasses have special safety filters that appear similar to sunglasses, but these do permit safe viewing."

Instructions for Inserting Shade #14 Lens into Goggles for Safe Viewing of the Eclipse: .pdf
- Place the goggles face down on a table with the nose slot closest to you.
- Locate the Arrow ⇽ on the back, left side of the goggles.
- Push the rectangular retaining spring down & left, toward the Arrow ⇽, until the right side pops out.
- Remove the retaining spring.
- From the front of the goggles, loosen the 2 lenses (1 clear & 1 Shade #5) by popping them up into the small reservoir.
- Slide the lenses toward the arrow and lift them out of the goggles.
- Put the Shade #5 lens aside; it is not needed.
- If the Clear lens has a protective plastic sheet, remove it carefully, trying to avoid fingerprinting the lens.
- Remove your Shade #14 Lens from its package.
- Place the #14 lens on top of the clear protective lens, with the mirrored side face down.
- Place both lenses into goggles, with clear lens on the outside & mirrored side behind it, facing outward.
- Use the small reservoir of extra space, beneath the Arrow to get both ends of the lenses inserted beneath the lip & then slide them back away from the Arrow, toward the right to get both to drop down into place properly.
- Do not force the lenses into place. You may want to pop them up & over from the front side of the goggles to get both lenses to settle in properly.
- Replace the retaining spring, following the same steps as the lenses.
- You may hear a “pop” once the retaining spring is back into place.
- You’re now ready to safely view the eclipsing sun!
