    I have the smae problem. When its dry out and the dust flies my eyes kill me. I wear contacts and it just traps the dust in my eyes. Haven't figured out what to use yet. hopefully someone out there has. Please let us know!!!

    I bought goggles from Conney Safety that have a foam ring around the eye piece. It keeps the dust and dirt out.

    I've seen people wear ski goggles in dusty conditions. I haven't tried it yet, but think about it sometimes.
    Good luck.

    i have not found anything to keep it completely out but i wear a snug fitting pair of sunglasses and that seems to help.

    Or, how about a scuba diving mask. You might as well use the air tanks and flippers also!!

    Never have conditions that bad. Ideas are swimming goggles, ski goggles, etc. or have customer wet lawn night before you get there.
    Now with leaves yes I do have these problems and have no idea what to do about it but wear the above mentioned eyewear. Really would not be a bad idea, it will look silly but you only get two eyes in your life and it doesn't take much to accidentally scratch your eye's lenses. Take eyedrops with ya too just in case.
    Good luck,
    Eric
