Looking directly at the sun in something that should never be done. Vision damage is serious and he will see a blurred spot for a long time, probably a few months to a year in some cases. This depends on how much the retina is damaged and that can only be seen after a test called Fluoroscein angiography. However, the good thing is visual damage is reversible.
