    Don’t worry about him.

    There are some glare blocking shrouds that attach to the back of your welding hood. Pinch that into a google search and came up with this on amazon:

    Hope that helps.

    Don't understand your post. I'm interested in cutting out ALL light under the hood so I don't think UV/Cancer are a concern for me here.

    I wear glasses; which may be another issue I have to deal with in a pancake.

    Have you tried tinted wrap-around safety glasses under your hood? You should already be wearing wrap-around clear to protect from the bouncing UV already, but having tinted ones can help with the visible spectrum that you are concerned with. You'll need sufficient ambient light in the shop and maybe less shade on the welding hood to compensate.

    The pancake will most certainly keep light out from behind the hood and into your eye balls.

    Pancakes - Darkness

    Considering a pancake hood because it looks like it would put my eyes in a darkened environment with no light coming from behind my head. I have some puddle visibility problems with light like my Elite allows. I’ve tried adding a leather blackout shield but it’s cumbersome and increases the heat; just overall an annoying solution.

    Would the pancake goggles resolve the problem above?

    Are there any issues like spatter associated with a pancake in a general welding environment (be pretty rare for me to do pipe)?
