Face shields are considered secondary face protection and must be used with safety glasses or goggles underneath. You don't get anywhere with a face shield.
Has the person tried the goggles with the silicon seal? The price point is higher but the goggles are very comfortable.
Hope this helps,

Birkett's hypothesis: "Any chemical reaction
that proceeds smoothly under normal conditions,
can proceed violently in the presence of an idiot."
A full face shield does solve the problem nicely. We keep one available in the Chemistry department for students who cannot wear goggles--usually due to an injury.

I'm looking for a chemical-splash type laboratory safety goggle for an individual with sensitive skin, who has experienced a contact allergic skin reaction when wearing goggles in the past. Is anyone aware of a goggle that is =E2=80=98hypoallergenic'
or, based on your experience, less likely to cause skin/allergic reactions?
