Back in the Day "squints" bravely stared directly into their ParCans for long periods of time, to focus them. This is nessasary as some Focusing is done in extremely brite environments. Squint, albeit factual, seems to be a somewhat derogatory term. Most lighting personnel prefer more refined titles, such as Electrician, Moving Light Operator/Technition, Lampi and Designer.
