After my second trip to the ER in as many years for THE SAME EXACT FRIGGIN THING, i've decided that I am going to buy a good set of goggles. Safety glasses just don't cut it when it comes to grinding metal. While grinding on my truck yesterday, I felt a piece of metal get inot my right eye. Went inside to check it out and found nothing. I flushed my eye as best I could, then went back to grinding. Well, at about 4am I wake up with a horriblly gooky and swollen eye. I woke up my roommate and she found a piece of metal stuck in my eye. She was able to remove it, so I just went back to sleep thinking i'd be cool. Woke up at about 8 and realized that it hurt so bad I had to go get checked out. Well, my retina is all scratched up yet again and this time i was not able to swipe the tetracaine eyedrops they have at the er. Damn those things work! I guess what i'm getting at here is the importance of good safety GOGGLES. I'll be getting a pair tomorrow and wearing them 24/7 just to be sure. And to look cool. Oh yeah, I have a buddy who doesn't even wear any eye protection when grinding.... he's never hurt his eyes. I asked him how he does it and he just kinda squints and says that he can "see 'em comin'". Wish that worked for me.
