Is it true that if you stare straight at the eclipse it will blind you? I did not have the pleasure of seeing it this year because I fell asleep but I just want to know if that is a myth or the truth. Can the eclipse blind you if you look at it without the special glasses?

Yes, it's true. Maybe not completely blind, but you'd get irreparable damages. If it weren't so, why would special glasses be sold?

Looking directly at the sun is dangerous for your vision at any time.

Staring at the sun can blind you. It's a pretty simple idea. When the sun is fully eclipsed you can look directly at it without damaging your eyes, but not when any part of it is showing.
