I had my the first flash today twice. Predictably while trying to show my son how to weld. I left the welder on by accident and got too close and FLASH, the wire popped off the end of the MIG gun and there was a momentary flash. Nothing was between me and the flash except my normal safety glasses I always wear in the shop. I have NEVER flashed myself before. Yeah it was stupid but now I am concerned. I don't see any spots or anything so I am hoping it was too brief to have an effect. I immediately yanked the gun back of course. The other time was through my miller digital elite lends but the darkening didn't kick in. I left it in grind mode like an idiot. The helmet still seemed to filter it to yellow color and again I have no spots. Two things I have never done in over 2 years of welding. I must be getting senile. So what do you all think, should I go see an eye doc or am I probably good since I have no after effects that are discernible?
