A condition experienced by welders who do not use adequate eye protection. The intense ultraviolet light emitted by the arc causes inflammation of the cornea (keratitis). Arc eye is a form of photokeratitis.

Flash burns are an extreme and damaging form of the effect of suddenly being in the dark from a brightly lit environment. It is a condition that is experienced by people who have to expose themselves continuously to bright and intense light like a welding arc or halogen lights. The condition is manifested by teary eyes, a spasm in the eyelid that resembles a nervous tic, photophobia or extreme discomfort to the eyes when in the presence of light, a corneal inflammation, and constricted pupils that remain constricted for almost five days.

The diagnosis of flash burns is performed by a dye staining, which will reveal the corneal inflammation. The severe constriction of the pupil will also be a tell tale sign. Interestingly, the condition is akin to getting sunburn in your eyes and being over exposed to sunlight – ultraviolet light specifically is a causative factor. The treatment that your doctor will prescribe is the use of drops to dilate and relax the muscles of the eye, wearing an eye patch until the problem is solved, antibiotics as the corneal inflammation may cause bacteria to move in, and continuous visits to the doctor to monitor the progress of treatment.


some home remedies:
wet tea bags
eye drops
potatoe
try out the use of ginger to reduce inflammation and swelling

I believe that this is one of the worse feelings anyone can have.
When Gremmy got Arc eyes, I got him eye ointment from the chemist. Costly but it really helped.



It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.

So happy that he now uses the proper eye protection...
