Always wear approved safety glasses with side shields when welding, cutting, or grinding. In addition to eye protection, always wear an approved welding face shield.
Welding face shields or welding goggles are specifically designed to protect against welding hazards and to resist hot splatter. They also have tinted visors to protect against dangerous arc rays.
Sunglasses, safety goggles, or any other protective eye wear are not substitutes for proper welding specific face protection.
Different welding processes may require specialized lenses known as "filter plates" that are designed to protect against flash burns and eye damage by absorbing infrared and ultraviolet light. These plates are inserted inside the helmet into lens holders.
Different color lenses are also available to reduce the amount of white light and glare while welding.
