    Swimming goggles vs winter goggles?

    I'm looking to buy goggles to protect my eye from the corona virus when the risk is higher.

    Are goggles guaranteed to fog up in the canadian winter even with anti-fog coating if they have no ventilation?

    should I buy swimming goggles or look for sealed goggles of another type?

    Goggles are going to fog especially if it gets cold. Not sure what military uses?

    Lab goggles have vents but will fog up......

    If you want protection, a surplus NBC hood

    The only threat to the eyes is if you get a direct cough/sneeze into them, or an infected person touches your eye.
    There is no need to worry about a proper seal or anything like that. Just direct splash avoidance.
    It's still not confirmed that it can even be contracted in this way. It was just a doctor's speculation on how he may have caught it.

    You can't get it through simple skin contact. It requires a mucus membrane in order to spread. If you anticipate being around people who are infected (what the hell is wrong with you, just stay home), keep your mouth and nose covered, wear goggles if it makes you feel better, and don't touch your face until you've thoroughly washed your hands with soap and hot water.

    Ounce of prevention > pound of cure
    Avoid infected people/areas and you'll be fine.
