i have never been flashed yet in the few weeks i've been welding but after a exceptionally longe period of welding this weekend (where i used around 25 7014 rods) my eyes feel a bit strained.
my eyes dont hurt...they just feel different.a bit like when you ve stayed up all night using the internet.
i am using the correct filter shade (#11) for the current i am welding with and its manufacturer meets the DIN specs for welding filters. you cant see anything through it before the arc is on.I have never seen spots following extinguishing of the arc.
what i would like to know is if any other welders here ever felt eye strain following welding even when you were using filters of the right shade?
