So, I feel like an idiot right now ahahah.
I went to sonicate my HeLa cells in NP-40 lysis buffer and I didn't even think to put my goggles on. I naturally wear glasses, but I doubt that's enough protection... ANYWAY. As probably expected, some aerosols splashed onto my face/right under my eye during my last round of sonication. I'm not sure how much or if any got into my eyes.
If they got into my eyes, how dangerous would this be? Should I be seriously concerned? I'm not worried about them on my face or nose anything, but the eyes are pretty important. I rinsed everything with water afterwards, but I'm still pretty freaked out.
Obviously I will wear my goggles next time - I USUALLY DO!
Any help/reassurance is appreciated!
