    No.

    Welder's flash comes from NO protection. All of the shades, heck even a clear shield, blocks the harmful UV rays.

    You just have fatigued eyes.

          As far as #9 goes I think I have my hood set to 9 and I have been back and fourth from tig to mig for two weeks and haven't noticed a problem. The mig was set pretty high sometimes.
