Wearing contact lenses during a weld can cause the lenses to melt and fuse onto your eyes :Myth
This has been proven to be scientifically impossible. Long before contact lenses could melt :Fact onto your eyes, your skin and hair would have already started to burn
It is perfectly safe to wear contact lenses whilst welding, and it’s impossible for contact lenses to
become “welded” to the cornea. Contact lenses are sterilized with steam at around 120 degrees
Celsius, they are also boiled to clean them so they don’t melt from boiling water either. However
it is worth noting that contact lenses are not designed to be safety devises and should not be
worn as such, all normally precautions like wearing appropriate safety equipment while welding,
regardless of whether you’re wearing contacts.
