why no plastic dish for confocal?

I can access a Leica SP5 confocal microscope.
i have a question.
i know most of the time we are using glass slide and glass coverslip.
the thing is i don't know the reason why we can't use plastic dish for confocal microscope?
i thought laser from confocal microscope comes in and out in objectives, and suppose i'm using a coverglass. then fluorescence from the labelling of the cells should still be captured?
can anyone tell me why we can't use polystyrene dish for confocal microscope?
