im sure it meets the standard for UV, but visible light can damage your eyes also ... just not so fast
after the first flash in the eyes i definitely felt like i had stared at a light bulb for a few minutes, and i definitely had white spots in my vision for an hour or so after using this helmet
im not even going to risk exchanging it for a replacement, im gonna spend an extra $67 and get the Hobart helmet that sears has
i simply don't have the time to drive out to screw around w/ more possibly junk helmets ...
and in not tossing the Jackson, its a great helmet, so im saving it for when i have the $ to upgrade the lens
