Are there certain chemicals that contact lens should not be worn around? For example, ethanol and isopropanol?
Any volatile chemical can create a vapor that is generally irritating to eyes without the presence of contact lenses. Contact lenses may aggravate this irritation. If your eyes are becoming irritated when using certain chemicals, I would suggest you take appropriate precautions such as using the proper protective eyewear. If you find that using contacts makes this irritation worse then I suggest not using them when working with that chemical.
