We have the same rules as those below.  As far as contacts, you can wear them, just not put them in or take them out at the bench.  Don't know why you would, but that's what the rule says.

I (probably like many), remember the days when it was perfectly acceptable to eat, drink, and smoke at the microtome.

For your information: smoking, drinking and eating, applying cosmetics, or even using contact lens are ABSOLUTELY prohibited in a medical histology laboratory setting.
  Should I imply by your question that you do not work in a medical lab. setting? Some universities and animal labs have been able to get away with ignoring those regulations up to now, but not any medical lab. that even have to have designated lounge areas.

  Dare I ask this question,
Does anyone use closed topped and safety mugs at their microtome station when cutting slides...etc.? Would cutting paraffin blocks constitute Blood Borne Pathogen concerns? I fully understand not eating while paraffin is flying all over the place......but closed containers with coffee for those of us who work sleep deprived hours? Someone save us!
