hey have any of you ever had an extra light glare around stuff or had your eyes get so dry that it kinda blurs your vision? i wear the phillips green ace shade 3s, i really love them, but my left eye is kinda funky now. i had lasik surgery done a while ago and that might be it too but i honestly feel like my vision is deteriorating and my eyes go dry really easily. i work medium size boro like usually 3-6 inch vessels, and pendants. i also fume and use a lot of striking colors i dont know if that makes a difference. i lampwork about 2 t tanks of hours a week and furnace work with just clear safety glasses 8ish hours a week.
anyone got any advice if i dont have health insurance?
Dale’s wonderful (but wrong) suggestion is get artificial tears and blink a lot…Dale: how about if you stop giving advice about things you know ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about?
The key is in this statement:
i lampwork about 2 t tanks of hours a week and furnace work with just clear safety glasses 8ish hours a week.
Working at the furnace, staring at molten glass at 2300 F, into a glory hole at 2400 F, and wearing only clear safety glasses…no wonder this person has dry eyes!! Furnace work requires specialized filter eyewear to remove the IR (heat energy).
jojo101 needs to be wearing at a minimum Welder Shade 2.0 while working at the furnace. This equates to the Aura 99 Shade 2.0. Wear these, and I will bet that your problems will disappear in very short order.
