Answers:   Nope ! As long as you're wearing the goggles, you should be fine.
Tell your instructor that you're wearing contacts before doing anything.
It is going to depend on what type of lab work you're going to do. If this is for school, and there is a risk for someone who wears contacts , it would be listed in your class materials.

What COULD happen is that your contacts could be contaminated with some airborne substance. But if that was a risk, your eyes without contacts or with glasses would also be at risk.

If you are concerned, ask your lab assistant.
