Can I wear contact lenses during an outdoor barbecue? Will the contact lens become damaged or distorted by the heat and harm my eyes while I'm grilling food by the fire?
You can wear contact lenses while working over a flame. It is easy to get ash trapped under the lens leading to a foreign body sensation and eye irritation. More importantly than the lens, is to protect your eyes from the smoke, heat and ash. Wearing protective goggles is ideal.
