Generally, the state doesn't do much in making sure things run as the law says it should (well, except for taxes, they're quite up on that). But, they most definitely do get involved when complaints are made. This is a pretty big profile thing and I bet they'll keep an eye on it. I also can see quite a number of disbelievers applying for job positions just to get rejected to then make a complaint. This might really bite them in the butt in the end, which I personally would like to see. This is bordering on religious support from the gov't.
Also, having worn glasses for so long I've gotten used to the built in "objects flying at my eye" protection they offer. My glasses have caught more than a few flying objects and/or children's fingers.
That is so incredibly true with myself as well. I can't count the number of times I would have to go to the hospital to remove something from my eyes. (And the time I did wear proper eye protection, I ended up getting concrete dust in an eye when removing the safety goggles as the dust was sitting on the goggles. I had to get the stuff scraped out, not fun at all.)
Plus, I absolutely love having transition lenses. Nothing beats having automatic sunglasses while outside. Then, of course, they'd probably have to knock me out to perform the surgery, as I have a real hard time letting anything near my eyes. With that concrete dust, I needed three nurses to hold my eye open. . .
