All hotels, campsites, B&Bs in the path of totality in Oregon have been booked for nearly a year, but there are still ways to view the eclipse safely from the direct path of totality (where the sun will be completely covered by the moon) to partial.
Click here to view the PowerPoint Presentation “Great American Total Solar Eclipse 2017“ provided by OOPA member Dr. Karl Citek, OD, PhD, FAAO, Diplomate, AAO PHEV Section, Professor of Optometry at Pacific University College of Optometry. Please contact OOPA for access to additional resources for doctors and educators. Click here for NASA resources on the Total Solar Eclipse 2017.
We are pleased, as well, to offer exciting children’s educational materials at a discounted rate for distribution to your patients and their families, or through your community organizations, churches, local schools, clubs, etc. – through our partnership with Orbit Oregon. www.orbitoregon.org.
We want all Oregonians, and tourists, to hear the message loud and clear: “Be Wise – Protect Your Eyes”.
Please help us protect Oregonians by spreading these messages. We are offering proper solar eclipse glasses at a significant discount of .50 each and they are a great way to open the conversation with your patients about how to safely look at the sun. Click here for the order form
