Prescription lens in auto-darkening helmet

Recommended Posts

I suppose others have done this, but if like me you need readers for close work, try this. I wear 1.5 safety glasses in my shop, and got really tired of messing with trying to use them inside my MIG helmet. Had some spare 1.5 lenses for my OptiVisors, so I masking-taped one inside over the MIG helmet lens. Works like Bob's your uncle. You can get spare OptiVisor lenses in about any power desired pretty cheap on the auction place, and they fit nicely with a little tape around the edges. Being inside, they don't get all scratched up, either. Mine are two years old and no scratches.

My husband bought an auto darkening welding helmet, works well now.

Sorry, I am a little curious. May I know what lenses you have? :unsure:
