That's how some burns occur from the side or from a reflection, the victim my not even realize he is being "flashed" because he is not seeing the blinding light. That's also the reason the Auto-Dark lens work even if they don't go dark, even clear glass offers a lot of protection and the right UV rated safety glasses do not even have to be dark to work.
