DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) –  Solar eclipse glasses with the specific certification can be used for the next solar eclipse in 2024.

NASA says you can use the solar eclipse glasses a number of times if the glasses have the ISO 12312-2 code and in good condition. NASA says to get new solar eclipse glasses if the filters on the glasses have holes, scratches, or punctures in them.

There might be warnings on the glasses to throw them out after three years, but NASA says that warning is outdated so you can use them as along as the glasses have the  ISO 12312-2 code.
