Contact lens in chemistry lab.

Posted

I have really bad eye sight, so I see better with contact than glasses.

But I am talking chemistry lab now, so I ordered glasses for my lab.

Thing is that they are coming in a few days, so I have to take the class while I am just wearing contact lenses! I am afraid that my eyes will get damaged while I am waiting for my new glasses!

Did somebody take a chemistry lab while wearing contact lens with safety goggle before?

Don't get me wrong! I am going to wear glasses soon. But just a few days!!!

Thank you!

If you are wearing safety goggles, there should be no problem.

I wore contacts with safety glasses for every lab in school. No issues at all.

I wore contacts with my safety goggles for every lab. I was fine. As long as the goggles are on there should not be an issue.

Was that the chemistry classes that has Acid vapors and nasty aerosols?

Oh god, your comments means a lot to me!!

Thank you so much!

Didn't your school have you sign some form for not wearing contact lenses?

I am so worried about it. Was that the chemistry lab that has Acid vapors and nasty aerosols?

Thank you so much for your response!!

I wore contacts and safety goggles the whole semester we just had to sign a form letting the professor know we wore contacts in case of an emergency and know how to deal with it. no big deal. if it was going to be a day that we had to worry about vapors he would let us know so we could wear glasses if we wanted to instead of contacts...it was a non issue in my chem lab tho.. I think you'll be fine
