When solar cookers are publicly demonstrated in Europe, a frequently asked question regards the possibility of eye damage. This article discusses different effects of excess light on the eye – relative (or physiological) and psychological dazzling, absolute dazzling and pathological effects. The dangers of solar cookers are those of solar radiation, that is visible, infrared (IR) and ultraviolet (UV) light. For comparison, optic radiation exposure – especially UV – in industry and leisure time are mentioned and relevant regulations by government and professional bodies in Germany as well as WHO recommendations are pointed out. Eye diseases due to excess light, especially in tropical countries, are briefly discussed. In the case of solar cookers, radiation is reflected from below (or horizontally), a situation comparable to that while skiing. Recommendations for protective measures are proposed. To put matters in perspective, the possible damaging health effects of other household fuels in developing countries are also discussed, and more so the lack of fuel for cooking.
