Goggles and Safety Glasses

Goggles may be worn as an additional means of protecting against infectious diseases that are contracted from ocular exposure. Safety glasses may also be available to medical workers. But, they do not provide the same level of protection against respiratory infections such as COVID-19.

Eye protection must allow for sufficient peripheral vision. It must also be adjustable to ensure a comfortable and secure fit. Goggles should be indirectly-vented so as to protect the wearer from sprays, splashes and respiratory droplets. Fogging is a concern with goggles, but an anti-fog coating will provide visual clarity. All goggles should be snug on the face, especially around the corners of the eye.

Regular, prescription eyeglasses are not to be used as PPE. Those who wear glasses should have access to goggles which fit over their glasses. Goggles must maintain a high level of cleanliness and be disinfected according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Of course, goggles only protect the eye area and must be worn in tandem with other PPE.
