Solar spectral lines ("solar halo")--healing or harmful for the retina?

The sungazing method has been known for thousands of years as healing method based on chromotherapeutic principle
. Our examinations on the island of Rab show that it is acceptable only if applied 10 min before the sunset. Gazing has to be directed towards the green-yellow part of the spectrum, since the remaining part of the sun halo contains harmful energy. However, authors suggest that it would be preferable to use spectacles with medical filters transmitting wavelight of green-yellow colour, especially for treatment of macular degeneration.
