loss of eyesight you fear

So I was curious about the warning label on my telescope:

With the picture, the message it's trying to convey is fairly obvious. But I was curious how the Japanese would translate. So with the help of the Windows Character Map application, and Jeffrey's Japanese<->English Dictionary, I came up with the following:

危険
失明の恐れあり太陽を見るな

Google translates this as:

Dangerous
Loss of eyesight you fear and look at the sun

Does this look accurate to those of you who know more Japanese than me?
