Sungazing is the act of looking directly into the Sun. It is sometimes done as part of a spiritual or religious practice. However, the human eye is very sensitive, and prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can lead to solar retinopathy, pterygium, cataracts, and even blindness. Studies have shown that even when viewing a solar eclipse the eye can still be exposed to harmful levels of ultraviolet radiation.
