I will be attending my second year (Gosh Im as excited as a school girl) and I have a few questions please. My boyfriend who drives the fabulours Soul Train suggested I start here. We will be at Esplanade and 7:30 this year at Black Rock Roller Disco so come on by..Anyways the reason I am here is because I love burning man and because I need help. I need to know the best suggestion on proper eye wear for the playa. Last year I had a horrible time with allergies and spend alot of time inddors because my eyewear didnt fit well and I suffered alot. I need something snug against my eyes to work during the whote outs. I have a good painters mask I will be wearing but need good eye wear. Please suggest wear I should go please. Thanks to all.
Tired of spending time in the Med Tent
Hey VegasBella, Welcome to the board.
Some of the best dust goggles are ones designed for soldiers in desert conditions. I googled army surplus vegas
and got 10 hits (once I clicked on the red marker on the map it showed me ideas A through J). First two were Mad Man Army Surplus & Hip Hop, and Hahn's World of Surplus, but there are lots more.
It will help to try these suckers on, so shop local if you can. Get a pair of tinted for day, and clear for night.
Mine are very much like these:http://www.amazon.com/10347-Type-Wind-G ... B002SDCIPM
The foam is comfortable and thick and nothing got past them.
You might want some preservative-free artificial tears (as opposed to redness remover, which you can also bring). Preservative-free tears feel so much better. Thera Tears are my current favorite; I believe Ugly Dougly swears by Systane (also has a Preservative Free variety). You can't keep those drops forever, but they make "single serving" vials (handy gifts) or you can bring 1-2 full sizes, never touch them directly to your eyeball or lashes (or anything) and toss them after a few weeks.
