Yeah Thanks Guys, I'm at work now and I have to work the rest of the week, 10 hr days (one of the guys is on vacation) so I may not have a chance to see the doc.

10 ft tall and bulletproof at 19, I try to fight the urge to do stupid stuff....but I sometimes give in. I did have some swelling yesterday but I think it was from the actual burn around my eyes (rather red). But I'm OK and able to see and read fine. Some things are still a little blurry but its all getting better.

That has got to be the worst pain ever inflicted on my eyes....I'v got sheet rock dust in them before but god this takes the cake. I am soon to get a auto darkening helmet.

From everyone I'v talked to they say it happens at least once to welders in their lives. I'm glad I got mine over early

Again thanks to everyone, I'm glad to know I'm not the only person to do this

And a quick tip....if anywhere in the vicinity of welding make sure you cover em up . This is to painful to do again
