    In your case, you have to wear welding helmets, which are used when performing various types of welding to protect your eyes, face and neck from flash burn, UV light, flying sparks, glare and heat. Due to welding helmets are necessary to prevent arc eye, which is a painful condition where the cornea is inflamed. At the same time, it also can prevent retina burns to avoid blindness. The most commonly used welding helmet is shielded metal arc welding, gas tungsten arc welding and gas metal arc welding.

    The lights from the welding are harmful for the eyes. You'd better wear the goggles with the hat to protect the eyes from seeing the lights directly. You could buy the special goggles from the online stores because the price is suitable. You should never wear nothing and see directly at the lights from the welding.

    The best way of eyes protect is to wearing a mask. There are handheld, head-mounted, as well as leather mask that specialized to prevent the injury from your eyes when you work. If you still has some injury in your eyes or hemorrhage, eye drops and cold compress will help to relief the pain. Do not use strong rays to stimulate the eyes such as lights and TV. Next time when you go to work, please prepare well with the safeguard action taking to your eyes. Hide your face with the electric welding screen before you go to work. You must take it off when the work is over. Take care of your face skin as well as the eyes.
