You only had a small taste of weld burn on the eyes from only one strike of the arc multiply that by about 1000 and that is what it feels like to use the wrong lenses or even worse none for any period of time it is quite painful and nothing gives much releif. Try arc welding with gas welding goggles for a couple of hours on second thought Please don't take our word for it
Success is getting what you want but happyness is liking what you get.
