Can i weld with a proper helmet , if I have contact lenses in? Some guy told me that even with the helmet the lenses could melt to your eyes. This may be stupid, but Id rather be safe than sorry.

Just make sure you have the right helmet lens for what you are welding.

Stick weld
Mig Weld
Tig Weld
Torch Weld

They all have different types for tint shelding for your eyes, and NO YOUR CONTACTS ARE NOT GOING TO WELD ON TO YOUR EYES. I think the eye doctor would have to inform you if there was such a risk!!!

Now if you dont were a helmet then I dont know what would happen but, you would be the dumb`est fuck in the land.

Welding with contacts won't hurt (i've done it for years, hell since highschool back in 95/96)

But there is a concern that gases get trapped under the contacts easier and traps vapors to your eyes. I've always heard that, but I've personally never had a problem welding and I only wear contacts. --I'm not a professional welder either.
