    Welding can only damage your eyes if you are standing very close to the activity and not wearing goggles - injury occurs through debris entering the eye. I'm sure the sensation you're describing is probably just from looking at the bright lights for a while. I wouldn't worry, you should be feeling back to normal tomorrow.
