Re: Home remedies-- Welder’s Flash, arc flash,arc eye, flash burn
I worked in Industrial Fab for years. Welders, Plasma cutters and grinders everywhere all day long. I learned real quick to look away and never weld or tack without a hood. Same goes for any exposed skin, you will get a sunburn real quick. If you burn the eyes. Even air will hurt, thats why you'll get some relief if you wear some glasses or googles. Best remedy is not to let it happen. But when it did I used very warm milk in a dropper, it helped. The last time it happened I remember driving 30 miles home in the dark wearing sunglasses, the light was killin me. Next morning I took the day off went to the Doctor and got some Atropine drops, that works. If your doc gives you the drops you'll need a driver. And welding fumes, its all bad, only difference is the smoke from burning Galvanized steel will kill you faster then plumes of burning Stainless Steel welding rod.
