    My coach sometimes wears protective glasses but that's only when he's training studetns and standing reallyi close. I'd imagine that many people will have the common sense to dodge the bird if it were going for the face. I admit to having been hit in the eye before but that was my own fault haha

    Serious eye injury in badminton players.
    S. P. Kelly
    Department of Ophthalmology, Leicester Royal Infirmary.

    Abstract

    Serious eye injury can occur in badminton players and may become more frequent. The causes and nature of such injuries in this sport in six patients are discussed. All were playing competitive doubles matches. Penetrating eye injury due to a shattered glass spectacle lens occurred. Players should be advised not to wear spectacles with glass lenses. Ocular protection in this sport is desirable, and the forward player should hold the racket in front of the face.

    Had an eye injury a few weeks ago. Was practicing and the shuttle flew over me and i turned around to retreive it knowing i couldn't return it. my friend went for an underhand clear/lift. and it hit me in the left eye from 2 feet at full impact. my gosh that hurt. had blurry vision that day but it went away the following day and the optomitrist/eye doctor prescribed me with eye drops and said i'd be fine. I was/am fine. A lot of folks at my club play with glasses on and i've never seen them shatter those before. But i think its pretty hard to play with plastic glasses on, but its a good idea.

    Yes indeed I agree with this completely. I wear eye protection when ever I play and have been hit several times although never a dead center eyeball strike. However, I have witnessed a severe direct hit and it was quite alarming. The entire gym stopped play to see what had happened and to offer help.
