Has anyone used these goggles before?

What to wear? What not to wear? Where to find and how to make anything from goggles to fantastic pieces of playawear.

My plan was to use the goggles sparingly when the dust is flying (or the outfit calls for it) and use shades the rest of the time.


Yup, astaxanthin is pretty popular right now, so you should be able to find it at a Vitamin Shoppe or Whole Foods. Actually, I know for a fact that Vitamin Shoppe carries it, saw it there the other day. I take 8g a day. I'm not sure how long it will take to have an effect on your eyes, it was just something I realized one day. Even if you don't have enough time to see a beneficial effect for Burning Man, it'll help eventually and be worth it if you've got sensitive peepers!

If you want to read up on it, here is Dr. Mercola's write up on it:

Thanks for the scoop - I restocked on goggles but unfortunately some I didn't notice were coming from another country and may not make it in time - I ordered a pair of these just in case :P You can never have too many pairs right?

As a note about them not getting really dark in the day - if you aren't wearing contacts, or possibly even if you are, you can probably get away with sunglasses for clear air to moderate dust - especially if they wrap around the sides more. If it's getting fairly constant dusty to white out conditions, it won't be nearly as sunny out, so the chances of needed really dark shades and full dust protection are fairly slim in my opinion/experience.

Sensitivities to sun, irritable eyes or contacts may have a different story however.
