Been having a heck of a time seeing my welds through my helmet.

Never had a problem seeing where I'm going with my Mig before and been all over the place lately...but just realized that I had cataract surgery (both eyes) last year. Even bought a full face auto darkening adjustible mask. Too light of a setting...all I see is a bright ball, when I darkening it, the ball of light goes away...but I can't see where I'm going.

I have several hood/masks...anyone else have this situation..or is just me? May need to use a spotlight on the welding area?????
