Their purpose is to protect the wearers eyes from ultra violet light, sparks and metal debris -.not to mention the harmful effects from the heat that's generated during the welding process.
Of those currently available, they're generally small by design, fit neatly around the eyes and will provide the appropriate protection despite their diminutive size.
