    here you go dusty , take some raw potatoes cut them up small in slivers like hash browns and pack them on your eyes and let them stay there till they dry out then put fresh on , it works trust me iv seen it happen

    I had to go to the doctor when it happened to me. Eyes swelled shut, they gave me an expensive little bottle of eye drops. Sure did the trick. I would say if it ain't that bad just keep a moist rag on them.

    When you put it over your eyes you will auto close them but the just will get to the retina any way. I shred mine up and put it in a soft thin cloth so it will soak into the eyes good.

    Peeled raw Irish potato.Grind or grate up as fine as you can with what ever you have.Put it in a strong clean rag or T shirt and twist up the ball of taters tight as you can in the shirt over a bowl.It will squeeze the juice out.Use the juice as eye drops.I don;t know if a juicer will work.I always used fine sided grater in a bowl to catch the potato.If it is not better in 48 hours see a doc.As a student,something is bad wrong and dangerous here.Some one some where is not doing the right thing.Standard procedures and safety rules are not being followed or this would not happen.I am speaking as a mechanic who welded much of his life,was multi certified at onetime and contentiously worked with and around welders and welding on a daily bases for 40 years.I love you brother.peewee

    if they are not better today after usin the taters go to the drug store n tell the pharmacist whats up they have a drop to go in your eyes that will stop the pain instantly, it wont repair the damage but will stop the pain. also NEVER STRIKE AN ARC WITH LESS THAN A #10 SHADE LENS!!! whoever told you to do this should be poked in the eye!
