My son has a pair of safetygoggles that have a silicon “gasket” that seals the goggles tohis face.  Silicon tends to be less allergenic than other plastics.  Would that be an option?

I had a question regarding a student being allergic to plastic therefore could not wear safety goggles. Anyone know of a remedy for this situation.
