If you notice, when you strike an arc with your eyes shut, facing it or even close reflected light, there is still quite a flash right through the eyelids.

Yes, you still see the lite through the eyelids, but the eyelids will get the burn instead of you eyeballs. I realize your situation was many yrs ago, but IMO it was up to the older, more experienced guy to protect the young and inexperienced. Even back then some people, like the weldor, needed a "sign".
