Default vision while welding

Ive found my vision not as good as before when welding..and around the shop. I moved into using cheaters(magnifying glasses-WalMart) some years ago,I see great but on occasion have to use some magnification..I started with using 2.0, then moved to 2.5 a few years ago..now I'm up into 3.5 for closeup work,but stick with 2.0 for welding while wearing the helmet.Make sure your outer glass is clean and wipe down your inner filter liner as well from time to time-smoke and soot buildup impairs your sight thru the filter
