With the COVID-19 pandemic still ongoing, medical staff around the world are continuing their invaluable work helping those who have become seriously ill with the virus. But in many countries, there is simply not enough protective equipment for them to be properly equipped to stop themselves from becoming ill. This is where Goggles for Docs is hoping to help.
Goggles for Docs is a newly formed organization that has the sole purpose of supplying medical staff goggles who currently are working without proper eye protection equipment when treating patients with COVID-19. The group was formed by members of the ski and snowboard industry after they found that goggles had become a valuable piece of personal protective equipment for health care workers. So far over 32,000 goggles have been donated.

FAQ:Source: Goggles for DocsWhat kind of goggles?"Please only donate ski-style goggles (the same style used for motocycles, snowmobiles, etc.) or lab goggles. Please DO NOT donate any type of swim goggle."What guidelines should I follow to donate safely?"Be sure to follow these guidelines if you drop off or mail goggles or watch this short video for a tuturial from Chris Kratt."Tinted or clear lenses?"Either. They have nothing. Dark lenses are better than a COVID cough to the face."Used or new goggles?"Most of these goggles will be used. Again, used lenses are better than a COVID cough to the face."
