Viruses/diseases are absorbed via mucous membranes which are located in your mouth, your nose, and your eyes. So the goggles/eye protection are to keep droplets/aerosolized particles out of the mucous membranes in your eyes. But that's cool, I guess someone super healthy like yourself who is in contact with other super healthy people throughout your day to day life shouldn't bother. I mean @NoSavingByTheBell isn't worried about it, are you Steve?
As for masks working....hey, don't take it from me, how about 'The New England Journal of Medicine'? (when they use ACTUAL studies with ACTUAL doctors and not the bullshit they got hoodwinked on recently)
We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes). The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic
From the same article
It is also clear that masks serve symbolic roles. Masks are not only tools, they are also talismans that may help increase health care workers’ perceived sense of safety, well-being, and trust in their hospitals.
And you might say "Well YEAH, but are there any drawbacks to that?"
Again from the same article
What is clear, however, is that universal masking alone is not a panacea. A mask will not protect providers caring for a patient with active Covid-19 if it’s not accompanied by meticulous hand hygiene, eye protection, gloves, and a gown. A mask alone will not prevent health care workers with early Covid-19 from contaminating their hands and spreading the virus to patients and colleagues. Focusing on universal masking alone may, paradoxically, lead to more transmission of Covid-19 if it diverts attention from implementing more fundamental infection-control measures.
