Even though, what shade is safe for welding?
OPERATIONSMINIMUM* PROTECTIVE SHADE
By no means, do welding helmets go bad?
The lifespan of the non-replaceable battery is approximately 7 years, its disadvantage is that once the battery wears off, the lens doesn't work. The auto darkening helmet with a replaceable battery and solar assist is a better investment because the panel allows you to start welding right away.
What helps eyes after welding?
Taking care of yourself at home after a flash burn
Take pain-relieving medication such as paracetamol, ibuprofen or codeine. ...
Wear sunglasses if your eyes are sensitive to light.
Use artificial tears or lubricants to help any discomfort in your eyes.

Glance towards the sun and see how your lenses react. If your helmet is durable and reactive, then your lenses should darken. Next, glance towards the sun and slowly move your hands in front of your face. Since your hands are moving slowly, your auto-darkening welding helmet should still register the light.
For most people, welding is moderately to very difficult to learn how to do, as it's a hands-on skill that requires more than just reading. Furthermore, welding is very difficult to actually do for most people, because it takes years and years of practice, on top of learning how to do it.
Prolonged exposure to welding fume may cause lung damage and various types of cancer, including lung, larynx and urinary tract. ... Health effects from certain fumes may include metal fume fever, stomach ulcers, kidney damage and nervous system damage.
If workers inhale fumes during welding, it could cause lead poisoning. Employees exhibiting symptoms of this condition could report loss of appetite, nausea or abdominal cramps. Long term impact of lead exposure might present itself as damage to the brain, central nervous system and other organ systems.
