Contact Lenses

If you wear contacts, keep the following safety tips in mind.

- You may not wear your contacts while using   a full face respirator.
- Wear your contacts with caution if you work   in areas where you might be exposed to   fumes, dusts, powders, vapors, chemical   splashes, molten metals, or intense heat,   light or glare.
- If you get anything under your contacts,   take time to remove and clean them. Follow   your eye doctor's instructions for cleaning   and caring for your contacts.
- Some chemicals can react with contacts and   cause permanent injury.
- It is wise to keep an extra pair of contacts   or a pair of glasses handy in case you   should lose or damage one of your contacts   while you are working.
