One cannot underestimate the significance of welders in the economy with more than half of manufacturing and metal fabrication products in the United States heavily depending on welding. But welding can be dangerous without the right protective wear. It is rated a top cause of eye injury.
As welders carry on with their work, their eyes are exposed to “welder’s flash” with Ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which causes conditions such as photokeratitis or ultraviolet (UV) keratitis. But photokeratitis does not affect the eyes immediately –one can start showing symptoms 6-12 hours after exposure, with pain being the most apparent one. While UV keratitis is a temporary eye condition, prolonged UV or IR exposure puts you at the risk of permanent eye damage or even complete blindness.
You wouldn’t want to quit or stay away from your welding job due to eye problems from “welder’s flash.” That’s why it is advisable to get yourself a pair of high-quality and dependable welding safety equipment from VS Eyewear.
