Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
as my question says, is there any risk for eye damage
No. There is no need to worry. You will be fine.
I haven´t had an eye exam in more than a year
so that´s why I worry
I wear glasses
If it seems like you are not seeing as well out of your glasses as you used to, you may need a new refraction but it is not because of getting flashed by the arc welding.
Does this make sense to you?
yes of course...it´s just ever since I was a kid I was told to never look at the arc welding. so I kinda freak out
And that is good advice but the brief flash you got from so far away won't hurt a thing.
oh ok, i´m more relieved now
And, now, the obligatory word from our sponsors: :o)
