This is FYI for anyone using anti-fog solutions.
Be very careful with this stuff. I have a friend who only used it during
races (she did NOT train with the stuff). We did Bass Lake last year, and
she THOUGHT she got some dirt in her eyes during the swim. She did the whole
race with one eye closed shut, and the other barely open, then we spent three
hours in the emergency room with the doctor trying to figure out HOW she had
abraided her eye so badly. (She wore an eye patch for two days after....)
This year she did Wildflower short course and the same thing happened (only
worse). She barely finished the race (hard to do a tri when you can't see
the course!), and we FINALLY figured out it wasn't dirt in her eye at all but
that damn anti-fog stuff. She went to the optometrist the next day, he was
amazed at the extent of the scarring (and the height of her pain threshold!).
She was in an eye patch for a week this time...
To this day, she has NOT regained full sight in one eye, probably never will.
We threw the anti-fog stuff out before we even got out of the transition area
It was a VERY EXPENSIVE lesson learned, and I hope others will benefit from it.
Be VERY wary of any chemicals that come into contact with your eyes.
To de-fog my goggles, I use toothpaste. I am very careful to rinse ALL the
toothpaste out after I clean the inside of the goggles with it. I haven't had
any problems with my eyes burning....
