Demonstrate the importance of eye safety in the science laboratory! Acetone is sprayed on a bare, plastic-wrapped, and plastic-wrapped glasses-clad styrofoam plate to show the importance of protective clothing and eyewear. Phenolphthalein is mixed with sodium hydroxide in a contact lens simulation. Dilute sulfuric acid is dripped on a real pig eye, rinsed in water, and examined for damage to the pupil.
