Isn't that the truth.
Worse burn I ever got, guy working on the same table TIG welding some stainless(GTAW for the youngsters). Both eyes taped and wrapped for 3 days. The eye doc put an ointment in them and gave me some pain pills. If you care for your eye sight go straight to an Eye doctor for all eye burns. All those home remedies do not work.
I used to tack weld with dark glasses and sunscreen on my face, but I feel such things are foolish with the auto darkening lenses so readily available.
