Always wear your safety goggles in the science laboratory. Concentrated acids will quickly attack the proteins in your eye and cause permanent damage to your eyesight. You will likely be blinded by a concentrated acid. Use the eyewash station as quickly as possible and maintain the rinse for at lease 15 minutes. Diluted acids will cause damage more slowly and permanent damage may be avoided if rinsed quickly enough. Don't chance it. Please listen to you instructor when she tells you to put the goggles on and keep them on.
