Peter, I need 'reading glasses' at my age. For welding I use a set of regular reading glasses under my welding hood. I tried using a corrective lens in my hood but I didn't like it.
For gas welding, I have a full face shield--number 5 darkened. I use my reading glasses under that. Works like a hot darn because you get way better visibility than with goggles and your whole face is protected from any possible sparks etc.
The 'reading glasses' I refer to are actually shop glasses with magnifying (safety) lenses (to my strength needs). But reading glasses behind a proper protective (full face gas welding shield or an arc welding hood) shield would do nicely I reckon.
Ciao, David Todtman

I buy reading glasses by the *three* at (US) Sam's Club. In the last few months they've actually had multiples of the same style.
Makes it easier to scavange parts and fix them. I still have three good pair. ;)

For gas welding I've been using Shade 3 clip-on glasses for a year. I have lousy eyes, goggles fog up fast on me, and they're hard to put on and take off over my regular glasses. It's also a pain to switch between my glasses and the goggles to set up between welds. The clip-ons work as easily as flip-up sunglasses, so they can't be beat for convenience and comfort. They also cost $9. Look at:
