The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends protecting the eyes in all possible exposure environments, in which caseworkers may be at risk of contracting infectious diseases through eye exposure.
This passage is going to talk about the following questions of eye safety goggles:
(1) Types of Protective Eyewear
(2) How to remove eye safety goggles?
(3) How to disinfect eye safety goggles?
Properly assembled goggles with indirect or directed vents provide the most reliable practical eye protection for splashes, sprays, and respiratory droplets.
The lenses of these goggles are usually scratch and fog-resistant and are suitable for all workplaces where debris may be splashed or where chemical splashes are involved.
*Directly ventilated goggles may infiltrate due to splashes or sprays; therefore, for infection control, it is best to use indirect ventilation or non-ventilated goggles.
Safety Glasses can provide impact protection, but they cannot provide the same level of splash or droplet protection as goggles, and should generally not be used for infection control.
Face Shield Glasses
Face Shield Glasses are designed for respiratory protection, but due to their design, they can also provide efficient eye protection. Choosing this type of PPE can help protect the face and eyes from the splashing of hazardous fluids.
The goggles can only be removed through the part of the device that holds the device to the head (for example, plastic temples, elastic straps, cable ties), as this is considered relatively "clean".
Do not touch the front and sides of the device (for example, goggles, face shields), as these surfaces are most likely to be contaminated by sprays, splashes, or droplets during patient care. Non-disposable eye protection devices should be placed in designated containers for subsequent cleaning and disinfection.
We recommend that you clean your safety glasses with a mild detergent to remove any dirt or debris from your safety glasses. When washing and scrubbing your glasses, be gentle. Plastic and polycarbonate lenses scratch easily. To clean the glass, avoid using abrasives. The temperature of the water should be at least 110 degrees.
Safety glasses that are shared should be disinfected after each use. This will help to reduce cross-contamination. If you do not share glasses, disinfect them only as necessary. Check before each use for scratches or any other type of damage that may affect safety performance and discard and replace if necessary.
