These don't conform to the ACS recommendations since there is a gap 
between the lens and the face.

We are considering returning to use of Visor-Gogs(r) for chemistry lab
students, as well as art studio activities.  Our reasoning is that
increased comfort will translate into increased compliance,  as well as
the idea that the less irritated the wearer's eyes/face are from the
goggles, the less likely one is to reach in to rub with a potentially
chemically-contaminated finger.


Please offer feedback, or other information, positive and negative, on
the use of Visor-Gogs(r) as PPE.
