The very first question you must answer is what type of goggles are you going to use to protect your eyes while Burning Man festival goes on? If you are attending the festival with family or friends, you can buy a pair of cheap and disposable plastic, or cotton, eye protective goggles. These are usually the ones you will find in your hotel room or camping trailer in Black Rock City. You may want to have a pair or two for yourself, but I advise buying a set, or at least three, for everyone.
What makes these types of safety glasses so important? A common accident during Burning Man involves someone slipping and falling on a slick surface. When this happens, people often have to walk around with blood on their face and possibly on their clothes. This can cause them to blush and look extremely uncomfortable. And don’t forget the fear of having your eyes cut or gouged by flying rocks or debris. And if you don’t have any disposable lenses, all of that blood just doesn’t go away, right?
That’s why it’s important to get eye protection. And while it’s true that they are disposable, that doesn’t mean you have to throw them away after the event is over. You can use them over again, and they can come in very handy when you’re taking pictures or enjoying the night sky or the glow of the stars. They even make great Halloween masks! Just imagine how scary you’ll look when all those lights are switched off. Imagine how frightened and distressed your kids will be, because you’ll be covered in mud, dirt and other material from your day at the festival.
As a matter of fact, it’s a good idea to bring some eye protection along if you’re planning to take pictures in any of the areas that are not part of the main playa. It can be very easy to damage your camera lens from all that dust, and the chances are much higher that you’ll need to clean your camera lens in a hurry if you do get it dirty. Some of the other stuff on the Playa is just as hazardous, so be sure you have some eye protection in case you get sprayed by water or get splashed with chemicals.
Once you’ve decided what type of eye protection you need, you will need to figure out where to get it. In most cases, the eye protection you buy will be purchased at your local eye store, but that’s not always the case. You may be able to buy them online, or in gift shops in Black Rock City that sell items at the festival area. Be sure to check the eye protection available and compare prices before you buy. You may also be able to score a deal by buying more than one pair of goggles to keep for future use.
And don’t forget, if you have kids, eye protection is also just as important for them as you are for yourself. I know that children are always the ones that are in danger, but adults are equally as vulnerable. While you’re at Burning Man, make sure you make them aware of their eye-protection needs and make sure they know exactly how to use it. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask your children.
