    Dang son, you are going to go blind soon. I think you need to make some adjustments in your approach.

    Vicks makes some sense though to keep them most.

    Braver man than me. No way I'd put Vicks anywhere near my eyes. Mandatory safety glasses with sideshields and can't remember the last flash I had. The odd reflective burn on neck and ears from other welders in close quarters.

    well sometimes when your waded up in a ball in a tight spot u might accidently fire up a little soon before your lens is flipped from about 4 inches away... it sucks. or when tou got 8 welders jammed in a small area, it happens
