Thank you for sharing that. It's a lesson to us all about the importance of having some kind of protection that closes off any possible entryway to the eyes, whether it be form-fitting goggles or face shields. Glasses are certainly better than nothing, but they leave way too much open. Back in my early soaping days I used to wear just my glasses for eye protection, too (thankfully without incident), but I've since switched to form-fitting goggles and am glad I did. It's much better to be safe than sorry.
