That sounds like the best option, although free would be better than cheap. I expect I can rig something up. I don't think I'll have people approaching and peering around, it's more likely passers by just looking over. I might look at putting a better power outlet in one of the other sheds, somewhere not directly visible from the drive. It needs to be in proportion though, most of the time there's nobody around at all.Get a welding curtain, simple and cheap.
Staring at the sun won't damage your eyes. Our eyes have evolved over milions of years to live in sunlight, and creatures which received eye damage from looking at the sun would not exist.I wouldn't stare at the sun and that's 147 million Kilometers.
We have evolved, for obvious reasons, a deep phobia of heights and precipices, affecting some more than others. (Also, snakes, insects, strangers etc).I think we evolved to learn not to stare at the sun . . . bit like learning not to jump off mountain tops until we worked out parachutes, long elastic or flying machines . . .
How did humans ever manage fine for hundreds of millenia, without being mollycoddled by finger-wagging bureaucrats?UV rays from the sun can lead to vision loss and cataracts if eyes are not adequately protected.
Even on cloudy days the sun’s rays can penetrate, so good sunglasses are vital, eye experts have advised.
Ultraviolet radiationDuring the hot sunny weather, it is not just our skin that needs protecting from the sun. Experts have warned that sun damage to the eyes can cause a number of issues.
As with the skin, it is the ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun that can cause problems. Damage can build up over years and have an effect on eyes and eyesight.
Although much of the UV light is absorbed by the eyes without any damage, over-exposure has been shown to cause both short and long-term eye problems.
Short-term conditionsShort-term problems that UV rays can cause include photokeratitis, which is inflammation of the cornea. This can be caused by looking directly at the sun, or by UV rays being reflected from snow, water or sand. Photoconjunctivitis where the membranes on the eyeball get inflamed due to UV rays.
Both these conditions usually get better within a couple of days, but they can be painful.
Long-term conditionsLonger-term eye problems that can be caused by sun damage include cataracts, where small cloudy patches develop on the lens of the eye.
Macular degeneration, where there is a gradual loss of central vision, is also associated with long-term UV exposure.
SunglassesThe Royal National Institute for the Blind (RNIB) advises that the best way to protect eyes against sun damage is to use a UV filter. Most prescription glasses and contact lenses have a built-in filter.
Sunglasses are the easiest way to protect the eyes. Ones with UV 400 protection can eliminate 97–100% of UV rays. They should have a CE mark, which show the glasses have been made to an agreed European standard. Sunglasses should be warn even on cloudy days, as the sun can penetrate through.
