Written by

Damage to the corneal surface of the EYE caused by ultraviolet light from arc welding. A painful condition, it usually heals if the eyes are covered with pads for a day or two. It can be prevented by the proper use of protective goggles. A similar condition occurs in snow-blindness or when someone fails to protect the eyes when using suntan lamps.
